FIA Karting, Preview - On the Genk circuit the last fight of the KZ and KZ2 European Championship

Columns: Races
Over the weekend, the FIA ​​Karting cirus returns to the Genk circuit to assign the title of European KZ and KZ2 Champion.

Despite being at risk, Genk also ensures the great show of international karting for 2020. The anti-covid rules imposed by the Federation have not slowed down the turnout at the historic Belgian track, unfortunately deprived of the usual and suggestive public setting.

From tomorrow there will be space on the track with the tight fights for the continental KZ and KZ2 titles.

In KZ the hunt for Alex Irlando (Birel Art) has begun, absolute ruler of Adria and once again opposed to rival Simo Puhakka (Tony Kart) first of the pursuers for the Champion Title. The duo will try to repeat the Adria weekend to get to the final and fight for the victory openly. A speech that Matteo Viganò (Lennox Racing) is ready to make also and above all, among the best of the opening weekend and held back only by a technical problem when he was about to attack Irlando, not least Riccardo Longhi (Birel Art) and Marijn Kremers ( Ricciardo Kart), in the European scrum package.

In KZ2, uncertainty reigns as always, but probably in the 2020 edition, Viktor Gustavsson (Lennox Racing) could be the worthy face to dispel this tradition and also dominate on the Genk circuit, just as he already did in Italy. Eyes on the Swede who will have to watch his back from the absolutely competitive couple Cunati (Modena Kart) -Palomba (Birel Art) and with all the credentials to aspire to the title.

Space also for the second round of the FIA ​​Academy Trophy with the American Connor Zilisch in pole position to repeat the success.

Qualifying starting tomorrow, and then moving on to the full-bodied program of heats on Saturday 5th September, ending with the Finals on Sunday 6th September.
