Nine victories and a third place as worst result in 10 races (5 pre-finals + 5 finals): this is the incredible result achieved by Paolo De Conto in KZ2, WSK Euro Series. "You cannot get such results without perfect equipment and mine was perfect at each meeting, no doubt. The atmosphere in the team is great and karts are prepared meticulously. Everybody takes their job very seriously and with professionalism, no detail is neglected", the Italian driver commented. Therefore, the WSK finished in beauty for Energy in Sarno, with the first podium for Joel Johansson who has discovered KZ2 only recently.

French Championship: Pesce on the Podium

Yan Pesce, third and then second in two races, is already second in the Championship standings. "The performances of my equipment got better and better throughout the weekend. It is very promising, both with a view to the rest of the GPO series and Europe", Yan declared. At the wheel of their Energy chassis, Julien Goupy and Mathieu Gaillard also entered the top 10.
A comment by Michele Panigada (team manager)
"Over the last few weeks, we found very different circuits and weather conditions from one weekend to the other, but 2010 developments of our Kinetic chassis in KF and Eclipse chassis in KZ proved to be fully satisfactory. I would like to thank GKS in KF and Rizzi in KZ for their hard work, which allowed our drivers to race with very high-performance TM engines. Energy Corse has nothing to envy to larger teams, in terms of equipment, technical know-how and organisation".
