CRG SPA - CRG STORMS ON MACAU! IN THE LAST ROUND OF THE WORLD KF1 CHAMPIONSHIP‏
CRG OFFICIAL TEAM IS READY TO TAKE ALL IN MACAO WITH FELICE TIENE, DAVIDE FORE, MAX VERSTAPPEN, JORDON LENNOX-LAMB, EDDY TININI AND TOM JOYNER WITH THE LH TEAM.
CLOSING THE GAP AFTER SUZUKA IS HARD BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE: TIENE IS 26 POINTS BEHIND, FORE' 28

Lonato del Garda (Brescia Italy). The echo of the CRG official team victory in the KF2 World Cup in Zuera is still resounding - the Italian team placed Felice Tiene, Max Verstappen and Jordon Lennox-Lamb on the podium of the world championship in Spain - but the All Black team is already going East, towards Macao, to try to lay their hands on the last title of the season: the World KF1 Championship.
The round in Macau is going to be as important as the Spanish race, even though it might be even more gripping. On the 1,203-metre long toboggan track of the small Chinese island of Coloane, facing the South China Sea and right in front of Honk Kong, CRG aims at getting a hard but not impossible goal: closing the gap after the first round of Suzuka on 20th May and get on top of the world once again.

CRG READY TO TAKE ALL IN MACAU. Felice Tiene (new world champion in KF2 in Zuera),
together with Davide For (who won a KF1 final in Suzuka), Jordon Lennox-Lamb (fresh KZ2
world champion in Sarno) and Eddy Tinini are the drivers ready to get on track on the performing
CRG chassis powered by the BMB engines prepared by KVS. With them also the quick Max
Verstappen on CRG-TM and Tom Joyner on LH-BMB, with the LH Racing Team.

TIENE 26 POINTS BEHIND IN THE RANKING. in Macau there are four finals in schedule, two on
Saturday and two on Sunday. For the final ranking only the three best results will be taken into
account, as well as it happened in Suzuka. There, Flavio Camponeschi (Tony Kart-Vortex)
dominated the race thanks to his three wins, while Davide For won once. The final ranking will be
given by adding the three best scores of Suzuka and the three best scores of Macau.

Among the CRG drivers, Felice Tiene occupies the best position. The Italian driver is third behind
Camponeschi and Sasaki (Kosmic) with a 26-point gap. Davide For is fourth, 28 points behind,
Max Verstappen is sixth (-43 points), Tom Joyner seventh (-47), Jordon Lennox-Lamb eighth (-
49). In Macau the race will start with this ranking.

In the first round in Suzuka Felice Tiene conquered a second, a third and a fourth place. Then, a
crash right against Verstappen during the last lap of the last final did not allow him to get onto the
first step of the podium. However, his potential in this second half of the season is much greater: in
Macau he is definitely the driver to beat.

THE FEAT IS POSSIBLE! After conquering the World KF2 title in Zuera - said Felice Tiene while
leaving for Macau - I was greatly celebrated, but now I'm focused on this last appointment of the
year. In Macau we can make the grade: we go there to run for the championship. Every race,
anyway, has its own story, but I'm confident: we have prepared our equipment with great care.
Even though the track in Macau is different from the one in Zuera - it is more slippery and narrower
- I don't think this is a problem, neither for me nor for my teammates. After the practice we'll see if
we stand a good chance in Macau."

Davide For, 5 world titles won so far: In Macau the appointment is really important and we can
achieve a great result. CRG showed, in the last race in Zuera, how performing is its equipment: of
course it really motivates me. I aim at a great performance and, why not, winning my sixth world
title. Mathematic says that we still can run for this championship, even though it is not going to be
any piece of cake. I hope I can help CRG; Felice Tiene, too, is running for the title and we'll both try
to get the result. Then we'll see, in Macau, who between us stands a better chance. I've been
training a lot for this race and, of course, I'll do my best as usual."

Jordon Lennox-Lamb, KZ2 winner of the World Cup on last 2nd September in Sarno: Here in
Macau I feel more confident than in the KF2 race of Zuera, where I placed third, and, in particular,
than in the race in Suzuka, which was my first race of the season in KF1. After Zuera I feel more
confident about my performance: I know the chassis and the BMB engine better, so I think I can
achieve a better result. I know Macau very well; it is a track I like and where last year I placed
second in the Asian-Pacific KF1. Macau is a technical track, where you need an excellent setup
and a way of driving which allows you to spare the tyres. There are lots of kerbs you can use when
turning the bends, and tracts where the speed varies a lot. In Macau we are going to use special
Bridgestone tyres and it is important to manage them in the best way possible."
