The prefinal of the World Cup for KZ2, first World title ever for the cadet gearbox category, saw the setback of the favourites to the final win. Federer (accident), Zanchetta (accident), Johansson (mechanical problem), Torsellini (gearbox failure) did not finish the race. The final seems quite unpredictable, but the likely candidates are prefinal winner Hannsen, Meindorfer, Weber, Habulin and Midrla.
Hannsen grabs the World Cup for KZ2
He’s Dutch and he’s won the first edition of the World Cup for KZ2. Joey Hannsen raced the perfect final, and no one has been able to put up the challenge to him. Behind him a series of drivers exchanged the runner up spot several times: Habulin, Lucati and Pex. Federer must have some regrets. The reigning European Champion finished third after a brilliant comeback, but the wrong choice of tyres in the last heat prevented him from starting from a better position in the prefinal. So the win goes to Hannsen powered by Galiffa tuned TM, ahead of Pex and Federer. The third Crg driver in a row Habulin finished fourth ahead of Lucati and Torsellini who stopped the fastest time (52”706).
