Birel ART Junior looses a big chance in the WSK Open Cup.
Birel ART Junior Team has joined the WSK Open Cup with a massive line up of drivers. 10 drivers, splitted in 3 categories, who has fought against a huge number of competitors along the South Garda racetrack at Lonato (BS). This summer event, held as usal by WSK Promotion, was very intense for all the Birel ART Junior drivers, with some of them able to step to the front positions.
In the Mini 60 a great opportunity has been lost by Filaferro who was able to keep an incredible pace from the qualifying until the Pre Final but being later excluded from the TOP 3 position overall during some hard fights on track (17th in the Final). Alongside the young italian driver, Frassineti had another great performance showing a very consistent pace in the heats but being kicked off from the Final only for a penalty. Amendola, Quondamcarlo, De Palo and Desiderio had, all of them, a good week end too but some racing fights pulled away some of them from the Pre Final (Desiderio and Quondamcarlo).
Amendola and De Palo were both a bit unlucky, missing the result in the Final (Amendola) and the Pre Final (De Palo). Debut in the team for Bitang who was at his first experience in the WSK: the indonesian driver improved his pace, step by step, during the heats, having the chance to compare his lap times with the best mini 60 international drivers.
In the OKJ category very consistent race for Lorenzo Ressico D’Aloisio who fought always for the top positions during the heats but made a mistake in the Pre Final ending 16th. In the Final, despite a start from the back of the grid, Ressico made a very great comeback until the 16th position. A bitter result for him who proved during the whole week end to be able to fight for the podium.
In the OK category incredible pole position for Cuman who, later, struggled a lot during the fights on track and missed the chance to fight for a top 10 position.
Anyway a great week end for the Pantano’s drivers who are now really close to grab a victory in the next Italian Karting Championship, which will come next week at Lonato.
