With two events and four opportunities to score points (the three best results will be retained for the final count), KF2 Drivers will have to approach the first round of their European Championship in a clever way.
They must indeed associate speed and regularity, both in the German event and in the second rendez-vous, in Great Britain. However, with 122 entries there will be rough points-chasing.
While the reigning Champion, Belgium’s Sami Luka (Tony Kart-Vortex), will throw in his crown, several Drivers competing in the World KF1 Championship have also given top priority to the European competition. Leader of the World Championship, Italy’s Flavio Camponeschi (Tony Kart-Vortex) will therefore find again in his way other World Championship front-runners such as his compatriot Felice Tiene (CRG-BMB), the Dutchman Max Verstappen (Intrepid-TM), Poland’s Karol Basz (Birel-BMB), the Brits Matthew Graham (Zanardi-Parilla) and Tom Joyner (LH-BMB), the Frenchman Anthoine Hubert (FK-TM) or even the Czech lady Driver Tereza Gromanova (Kosmic-Vortex). Amongst the main outsiders are Denmark’s Andreas Hansen (Maranello-Maranello), who made it to the podium of this Championship last year, the Finn Niklas Tiihonen (Energy-Parilla) and the Italian Antonio Maria Giovinazzi (Tony Kart-Vortex).
Finally, several Motor Sport Hopefuls from the KF3 category wish to have a direct impact at the higher level. Winner of the World Cup for KF3 in 2011, Monaco’s Charles Leclerc (ART GP-Parilla) will lead a young generation which also includes his British Team-mate Benjamin Barnicoat (ART GP-Parilla) and the Norwegian Dennis Olsen (Energy-TM), to name but the most competitive ones.
