CIK-FIA World KZ Championship & Int. KZ2 Super Cup - Qualifying heats

- FIA Karting World Champhionship
Anthony Abbasse confirms the lead in KZ winning another heat. KZ2 classification shaken up by a penalty given to Alex Irlando, Riccardo Longhi holds the head.


Antoher heat, another win for Anthony Abbasse (Sodikart-TM): the Frenchaman confirms his perfect shape despite the fact that he is coming back from a bad injury to his right shoulder. Thanks to a win in the last heat Jeremy Iglesias (Formula K-TM) overtakes Patrik Hajek (Kosmic-Vortex) and grabs the front row. Alongside the Czech driver there will be the reigning world champion Paolo De Conto (CRG-TM) who recovered positions throughout heats. 



Riccardo Longhi (BirelART-TM) finishes in second the last heat (A-E), but he is still first and will start from the pole position. Alongside him there won’t be Alex Irlando (Sodikart-TM), but the Swede Benjamin Persson (CRG-TM): in the last heat Irlando overtook Persson before the finishing line under yellow flag because the Swedish driver slipped on the wet side of the track, losing speed at the end of the last corner. Because of this episode the Italian driver received a 10” penalty and finished the heat in P13, earning the sixth spot for the final behind Francesco Celenta (Praga-TM).
2017 KZ2 Italian champion Marco Zanchetta (Maranello-TM) will start from P3 alongside the local driver Daniel Stell (Mach1-TM).
