Ardigò and Corberi lead the first round of the European Champioship for KZ and KZ2 at Essay

Press Release by:
The Racing Team’s seasonal debut in the CIK-FIA competitions could not be better. In the opening competition of the European Championship reserved for the categories with the gear, KZ and KZ2, our drivers collected a fantastic double victory, actually Marco Ardigò and Luca Corberi who got up, deservedly, on the highest step of the podium. Both statements came at the end of a competition in which our chassis have shown great competitiveness and reliability.


KZ. The Racing Team has been working well since the heats and Ardigò finished with two top results, a second and a fourth place, jumping from the second row of the prefinal. Just the prefinal was particularly exciting in the early stages, when Marco has struggled with tough opponents such as De Conto, Iglesias and Dreezen, managing to overtake them in the second stage of the race.
In the final the Racer 401 powered by the Vortex RVZ engine of Marco Ardigò turned out to be perfect. Only in at half race our driver temporarily left the leadership of the race, for leading again the race from fifteenth lap until the chequered flag.
One of the critical points of the Essay weekend was the wear of tires employed. Our victory came also thanks to our material, able of fully taking advantage of the tires, without passing the limit.
Marcus Armstrong has collected points for the ranking, finishing the final in twelfth position.
