The first event of the WSK Euro Series was raced on the Circuito Internazionale Napoli in Sarno, Italy. Praga was present with 6 drivers in KZ1, KZ2 and KF2: 2 podiums conquered...
In KZ1 Bas Lammers is 2nd in Final 2, after a star weekend: in Saturday’s heats he is 5th, then 1st and conquers pole for Final 1, where he closes 7th. On Sunday he does fast heats (3rd, 5th), but goes wild in Final 2: he “brakes off” best lap and closes 2nd, giving proof of great fairness and experience: at the end of the race, in fact, he conquers the leadership with a pass that causes a contact, then after a few meters, judging his move as aggressive, Lammers gives first place back to his rival. The driver’s and team’s professionalism pays off and the Dutchman is 2nd on the podium and in the general standings. Also in KZ1, Patrick Hajek does great in Saturday’s first heat (7th) and unlucky in the second, but in Final 2 he almost makes top 10 (11th) after a great recovery from 17th place.
Praga Kart also stars in KZ2 with 2 drivers in the first 4 spots of Final 2. Martin Doubek, after some great heats (8th, 2nd), is 4th in Final 1, and Sunday is 2nd in Final 2 (and in the standings). The German Alexander Schmitz in Final 1 is 10th, then on Sunday is phenomenal, rebounding from 24th to an incredible 4th place in Final 2.
In KF2 a surprising race by Karol Dabski, in his 1st year in KF2, after being used to Rotax tires and races: he’s in Superpole, wins heat one, then is 8th in the prefinal and, with the 2nd best lap, 4th in the Final and 5th in the general standings.
