In KF just like in KZ, Energy has collected a long series of victories at the latest international meetings, both in Italy and in Spain. The Italian chassis has proven to be both multivalent and effective and has allowed drivers from Energy Corse Team to frequently make it to the podium, in all kind of circuits and weather conditions. Energy has already taken an important leap forward in the race to the titles of the WSK Euro Series and the European Championship…
Margutti: Podium for Mitchell and JRP
The JRP team moved to the Castelletto di Branduzzo circuit, South of Milan, for the 21st Andrea Margutti Trophy. Jordan King and Gilbert Mitchell were always in the lead pack in KF2, both in dry and wet weather conditions. 5th at the end of the heats, the British driver felt at ease during the qualifying phase, but it was Mitchell who achieved the best result in the rain, during the final race. His team found an excellent setup and the Australian driver made it to the third step of the podium, at the wheel of his Energy-TM.
WSK / Lonato: Energy Dominates in KF2 and KZ2
In Lonato, drivers from the Energy Corse Team were fully satisfied with the competitiveness of their equipment. On a track where grip acquired more and more importance with the passing of days, the Italian chassis shined for its effectiveness. In KF2, for example, where there were many candidates to victory, Nicolaj Moller-Madsen staged an impressive performance, managing to give the pack the slip both in pre-final and in the final race. The Danish driver was therefore at the lead of the WSK Euro Series after the Lonato round. And since good fortune sometimes comes in pairs, Paolo De Conto also made it to the podium, this time to the first step. In KZ2, the driver from Energy Corse secured the good results achieved in timed qualifying until the final race!
Two double successes in the European KZ2 Championship!
Energy was the highest visibility brand in Sarno, at the opening of the European KZ2 Championship. Paolo De Conto, Marcel Jeleniowski, Kevin Leijtens, Yan Pesce and Joel Johansson were all very competitive and all scored points, at the foot of the Vesuvius. When an accident during the race slowed down the progression of a driver, one of his team mates was ready to take his place in the lead pack. Race 1 - where rain tyres were mounted due to the wet track - ended in the best possible way for Energy, with a double success by Jeleniowsk-De Conto and a fourth place for Pesce. Though Jeleniowski and Pesce lost several places in Race 2 after an accident, it was Leijtens' turn to make it to the second step of the podium, behind an unbeatable De Conto.
WSK / Zuera: Pole in KF3, Victory in KZ2
With the pole position conquered by Dennis Olsen in KF3, the Energy Corse Team demonstrated once again its determination to achieve high performance in all the categories where the Italian constructor is present. In the category 13 to15-year olds, the Norwegian driver had then the satisfaction to win a heat and score his first points in KF3, with an encouraging 7th place for a young driver. As for Paolo De Conto, he conquered his third victory in three races in KZ2, gaining a large advantage in the provisional standings of the WSK Euro Series. Meanwhile, his team mate Joel Johansson (who was fourth) keeps coming closer to the podium.
A comment by Michele Panigada (team manager)
"I would like to congratulate all the members of the team, all our partners and our engine mechanics (Rizzi and GKS) that contributed to the excellent results achieved by Energy over the last few weeks, both in the KF and KZ categories. Our determination not to leave anything to chance, both from a technical and organisational point of view, continues to bear fruits".
