From Monaco to Las Vegas, passing through Lonato and Kerpen, Energy conquered many podiums and victories throughout the season, with a long list of achievements in 2010. The "Energy Power" really means a lot for all the drivers and members of the team, who never stop doing their best with dedicated professionalism to guarantee peak performances.
Princely Podiums for Olsen and De Conto
14th in timed qualifying and 6th after the heats at the Monaco Kart Cup, Dennis Olsen avoided the traps of a track that includes part of the F1 circuit, to climb on the second step of the KF3 podium. Paolo De Conto showed equally good performances in KZ2 at this prestigious event. He also proved to be highly competitive both in dry conditions, during the qualifying phase, and in the rain, during the final. After reducing the gap over the leader at the end of the race, he could have even aimed for victory, with one or two additional laps!
Victories in Lonato and Kerpen
After the excellent performances he has shown since his arrival in Energy Corse, Sami Luka confirmed his very good state of form by winning the European final of the Bridgestone Cup in Lonato. His team mate Nicolaj Moller-Madsen – European KF2 Champion, German Champion and recently third at the World Championship – ensured a double success for Energy-TM. After ranking 2nd in Italy, Norwegian Dennis Olsen did even better one week later by winning the Thomas Knopper Memorial in Kerpen in KF3, a category where German Tom Lorkowski was 5th and Swedish Robin Hansson was 8th. In KZ2, Paolo De Conto added another notch to his belt by triumphing in the final race. The European Champion and winner of the WSK Euro Series in 2010 has definitely had a golden season with Energy's colours.
String of Successes in Las Vegas
The Supernationals, which is the largest kart racing event in the world with almost 500 entered drivers, is still growing. A highly visible presence on the American continent, Energy did not disappoint and showed some excellent performances in the US. Motivated by the idea of proving the competitiveness of their karts, Sodi drivers monopolised the podiums, in particular in KF2 with four Energy-TMs in the first five places thanks to Sami Luka (brilliant winner), Nicolaj Moller-Madsen (2nd), Joel Johansson (4th) and Jake Lloyd (5th)! In G1, Fabrizio Nannini prevailed with style in the final, while Antonio Dettori climbed on the third step of the podium. 2nd in TaG Junior and 3rd in S1 Pro respectively, Dennis Olsen and Indy Dontje provided their contribution to the fantastic results achieved by Energy in the US.
A comment by Michele Panigada
"We have just concluded an extraordinary 2010 season, with many titles and victories. These results have not come by chance, but they depend on our constant effort to provide our drivers with equipment and structures capable of leading them as high as possible. With all our partners, we are already very motivated to repeat this successful season in 2011…"
Alberto Tonti's comment
"The technical team continues to show its incredible know-how and the atmosphere in Energy Corse is really positive. It stimulates everybody to do their best, all the time. The management of drivers is also one of our priorities, because races can be won not only thanks to kart performances, but also thanks to drivers' right mental attitude".
