Victory and KZ2 leadership for Juodvirsis

Press Release by:
Victory and KZ2 leadership for Juodvirsis
Races

Whether in the rain or on a dry track, the level of sportsmanship did not decrease in the CIK-FIA European KZ2 Championship at Wackersdorf.


The Poleman Simone Brenna (TB Kart-Modena-B'Stone) kept up the pace during the Qualifying Heats although Jan Midrla (Birel-TM-B'Stone) beat him by just a point. Midrla also won the Prefinal ahead of Brenna and John Norris (Mach1-TM-B'Stone). Brenna was delayed in the first lap of the Final, Midrla went ahead before being replaced by Maik Siebecke (CRG-Modena-B'Stone). The race started on a wet track which gradually dried. The wet tyre pressures used by all Drivers played an increasingly prominent role over the laps. This was the backdrop to the relentless return of Simas Juodvirsis (Energy-Maxter-B'stone) from his 13th place on the grid. Second from the 7th lap, he would gain 4’’ from Siebecke in nine laps and grab the lead. The same thing happened for the places of honour. While Juodvirsis crossed the finish line as winner, Midrla passed under the chequered flag 17'' later ahead of Norris and Siebecke. But a penalty of 10'' Midrla gave the second step of the podium to Norris and 3rd to Siebecke. 
 
With this great achievement, Juodvirsis also takes the lead in the standings of the CIK-FIA European KZ2 Championship ahead Andrea Dalè had a difficult  weekend this time. Midrla moves up to third place ahead of Andreas Sebastian Hansen (Tony Kart-Vortex-B'stone) who scored no points in Germany.
