Defined as the second division of gearbox karts, the KZ2 category often allows young Drivers or very experienced gentlemen-Drivers to demonstrate their talent.
Discovering this year the handling of these vehicles which go from 0 to 100 km/h within 3.5 seconds, the Italian Loris Spinelli (FK-TM) hopes to confirm during this KZ2 European Championship his victory in last year’s World Cup for KF2. Regular competitor in the World KF1 Championship, Britain’s Jordon Lennox-Lamb (CRG-Maxter) is also among the favourites as he has obviously adapted well to gearbox karts.
Against these two young Drivers, a few regulars of the category want to make a name for themselves, like the Netherlands’ Yard Pex (CRG-TM), the Italians Marco Zanchetta (Energy-TM) and Yuri Lucati (Kosmic-TM), the Dane Andrea Fasberg (Tony Kart-Vortex) as well as the former French European Champion Julien Poncelet (ART GP-TM) and Germany’s Marcel Jeleniowski who will be able to perform in front of his public. But in this category, it is even more difficult to tip the winner safely. It is therefore after Thursday evening’s Qualifying Practice session that we shall be able to have a clearer idea of those who should be at the fore in the decisive Final to be held on Sunday afternoon.
