Even now that the end of the season is approaching, Sodi is definitely not resting on its laurels. On the contrary, there is some intense work going on at the Nantes factory, which is actively preparing a whole series of racing novelties for 2012. But even so races have not been left aside...

Sodi continues to regularly collect its achievements, both in France and abroad: Anthoine Hubert won the Essay round of the U18 World Championship, then Sodi conquered the Japanese Championship in Super KF with Yuuya Suzuki, the Belgian KF3 Championship with Florian Latorre, and Anthoine Lepesqueux has just won in DD2 at the Zuera Open Rotax, while the French chassis has monopolised the top of the classification at the Essay GPO.

The last round of the 2011 French Championship, held at Essay, gave many satisfactions to the Sodi team. In KZ2, Anthony Abbasse staged a superb performance by winning all the winnable, behind the wheel of his Sodi/Maxter: two pole positions, two pre-finals, two finals... the perfect score was even improved by his best lap times in the race. Progress made by the Sodi Racing Team and the performances of its driver were also rewarded by the title of French vice champion in KZ2. Anthoine Hubert was more convincing than ever in KF2 on the first day of this GPO, while Léo Roussel's turn came the following day, with a second place in the final. After Paolo Besancenez, it was young Jérémy Demarque who exploited at best his kart and just missed out on a podium in KF3, at the end of a season in full progression.

All these performances allowed Sodi to conquer the much envied title of Constructors Champion of Champions, with a considerable lead over the other companies. The French make was also awarded the title of Constructors Champion in KF3 and KZ2 and vice Champion in KF2. It would already be more than enough to say that the year is ending well, but this is not all...

Held at Essay in parallel with the GPO, the French Cup crowned Gautier Becq and Sodi, already French Champions in Cadet, while in Minime Arthur Lehouck was second, in the lead of a group of 5 Sodi ranking in the top 10. Considering all the results achieved at the meeting held in Normandy, Sodi walked away with as many as 7 pole positions out of 8, thereby proving again the competitiveness of its chassis, regardless of the category involved.

All this bodes very well for next season. But Sodi has not intention of stopping there and the preparation of its new chassis homologation for 2012 has already started several months ago. New models will not disappoint all Sodi customers eager for victory. The Sodi Team has performed a long series of tests to validate its technical choices on the track and so far the outcome has been very promising, with a very advanced development phase. Rumours say that performances are stunning...

Before the end of the 2011 season, Anthony Abbasse will go to Las Vegas in mid November to race at the Super Nationals in KZ2 with some solid ambitions. This incredible event will gather this year about 500 drivers coming from all over the world for a great celebration of karting. Anthony, your turn to play!
