FIA Karting World Championship - Ugochukwu and Egozi provisionally Ahead for the Final

Columns: Races
Intense Saturday at Campillos with drivers from both classes engaged in the heats. Ugochukwu and Egozi in the lead.

The weather was still uncertain over the weekend in Andalusia, with heavy rain in the morning replaced by strong winds and low track temperatures. Two totally different strategies between the wet and the dry track were able to reshuffle the cards on more than one occasion. 

OK - Ugochukwu vs Gomez
After yesterday's surprises, the Senior continues to surprise. It was Ugo Ugochukwu (KR) who took the lead for tomorrow's pole position in the final, despite still having one heat left to run. The American maximised his starting position by bringing home two out of three heats and a second place, vital to stay ahead of Gabriel Gomez (CRG) with a win, a second and a third place. Like the Brazilian, also Oscar Pedersen (Ward Racing), third provisional position with a third, a second and a first place. Top five sanctioned by Rafael Camara (KR) and Tuukka Taponen (Tony Kart). First of the Italians Luigi Coluccio (Kosmic), P10, author of a good qualifying but not completely lucky in the heats available today with two fourths and an eighth place. 

OKJ - James Egozi, impeccable 
In Junior it is already a breakaway for Tony Kart men thanks to the American James Egozi. Progression that is likely to affect a lot the course of the weekend thanks to four victories in four heats. First of the chasers is the pole man David Walther (Koski Motorsport), consistent in this morning's wet heat and then slightly decreasing with a third, a second and a fifth place. Tomass Stolcermanis (Energy), virtual third with two second places and a win, momentarily "ruined" by the seventh place in the last heat, is on the upswing. Fourth and fifth place at the moment for Marcus Seater (Ward Racing) and Alex Powell (Argenti Motorsport), both improving compared to qualifying. An absolute shocker was the retirement of Freddie Slater (RFM) during his third heat, due to a braking system problem caused by a stone hit along the track while he was in first position. The Englishman would currently start in sixteenth position after the three victories already obtained and one heat still to be run. 

Finals scheduled at 2.15pm (Junior) and 3.10pm (Senior), visible in streaming on fiakarting.com.
