"This was my first race in a such important championship. I’ve only practice once time alone at Motorland’s track. It was 3 weeks ago and I didn’t know who were the most competitive opponents. The first day at the competition, on Saturday, didn’t go so well and neither the Final 1 on Sunday, regardless of recovering some places at the beginning, an incident forced me to leave the race. At the Final 2, I started in 17th place, I was able to recover 13 places and had finished at 4th place. I even got the fastest lad at the race. I’m very happy with this result.”, said the young ukrainian pilot, who about a month ago completed 8 years old, while his parents, showing their fair-play, preferred to highlight that there are others important things than the races. “Beyond Karting there are other important things during a weekend of racing. Luka use to play around with other kids – who doesn’t speak the same language – and this interaction between them is priceless! We appreciate the work and effort of mechanics Márcio and Alexander and we congratulate the other drivers who also do good races”.
