Hiltbrand and Birel Art rules at Supernats

Columns: Races
The Red Army confirmed itself as the team to beat in the top class in the USA event that closes the season "that counts". Victories for the brands from Lissone also in the Master X30 (Thomas Grice on a CL) and in the 125 Master with former Formula 1 driver Antonio Pizzonia, still very active in karting.

«A great event as always, this year with a chilly air, but with the sun that accompanied us during all the races. With Birel Art PSL we got a full booty - Birel Patron Ronni Sala told us immediately, still excited by the success of the Birel Art colors in Las Vegas - despite the very cold temperatures that didn't make life easy for us with tyres, considering the peculiarity of the track and the difficulties in managing the changing conditions during the day»

Best time, swept in the heats, Pedro Hitltbrand (who also raced in the X30, stopped by a broken chain..) largely made up for it in this season finale by conquering the victory in the Pro Shifter without ever being worried by anyone, where the the final, also characterized by a red flag, saw an upheaval of positions after the race due to various penalties which saw Longhi overtake his teammate Kremers and finish in 4th place ahead of the home drive Jake French. Triumph in the X30 Senior for Evain Giltaire, who repeated her success in the IAME Finals at Le Mans a month ago, while in the X30 Master a daring after-race reversed the result twice: the British Grice, who had better in the final race on NTT IndyCar Series Champion Will Power had finished second for a penalty due to a contact, leaving the victory to Power. Further twist when Power was excluded for a technical irregularity and excluded from the final standings. Victory without worries, if not in the last laps given the return of Alan Sciuto, for Antonio Pizzonia in the Master Shifter, also like his compatriot Rubens Barrichello (who in a few days will race in the Portimao Rotax Finals) very active on karts. Victories in the other categories present for Tomas Stolcermanis, another well-known face of the FIA races in the KA100 Senior, Martin Stone (KA100 Master), Ernesto Rivera (X30 Junior) Steven Miller (KA100 Junior) and the kidsters Michael McGaughy and Jackson Gibson in the Mini and in the MicroSwifts.
