FIA Karting European Championship, Kristianstad - Nakamura and Bouzar on pole position

Columns: Races
Official Qualifying completed at Kristianstad, Bouzar confirms pole position in OKJ, Nakamura-Berta takes advantage and takes the lead in Senior.

The third round of the European Championship is underway, qualifying sessions as always tight between the protagonists, twists and turns lurking. 

OK - Nakamura-Berta is in front
It's a general classification with various differences and twists and turns already present that of the Senior at Kristianstad. The reigning OKJ World Champion lived up to the expectations placed on him, especially after his third place in the overall standings by taking pole position overall (50.314). A pool shot for the Japanese driver, who was good at taking advantage of the circumstances to put himself immediately in the driving seat for the weekend. An equally good lap time but with +0.022sec too much of a gap for German Maxim Rehm, more competitive than ever and on pole for Group B. Closing out the virtual top three is Alex Powell, another driver expected to be in the fight for the top positions and ahead for Group C. Tomass Stolcermanis also returns to the top, ready to build a good third round on the Asum Ring, fourth in the time classification and first for group D, identical speech for Arvid Linblad in front for group E with the aim of avenging that second place in Zuera, escaped at the parc ferme for the spoiler penalty. James Egozi closes the list of pole positions in Group F. 
Rather difficult qualifying sessions for both Enzo Deligny with the 25th overall time (group A), even worse for Joe Turney, leader of the standings, with the 30th overall time (group F) and called for an immediate response. 

OKJ - Bouzar again in pole position
The Luxembourger Guillaume Bouzar confirms himself as the man of the Friday with his second overall pole position in a row after Zuera. Two best performances that show the value of the driver and the moment of great competitiveness for Koski Motorsport. A pole position decided on the razor's edge that rewarded Bouzar but for only +0.005sec margin on the great comeback of Anatoly Khavalkin with the second absolute time, 51.590 against 51.595 for a more than sparkling start. Third time for Jimmy Helias in pole for Group C and spectator in the fight for the top spot. 
The Birel Art weekend also got off to a good start with a good fourth time and Group D pole attributed to Kirill Kutskov. Fifth time for Lewis Wherrell, sixth and first of the Italians Emanuele Olivieri, lap times respectively valid for the Group E and F records. 
Also qualifying was difficult but not worrying for Nathan Tye, only fourteenth overall and third in Group B.
