Wackersdorf (D), 2nd September 2017 -
race to the World Karting titles begins in Wackersdorf.The
CIK-FIA World Championship is the most important event of the season, which
begins - as usual - immediately after the summer break. The stakes are high
for all the protagonists of all the categories of international karting. This
time they compete for a world title: just after the end of the European
Championships, in few weeks the KZ, OK and OK Junior categories will have
their new World Champions. The first categories to get back on track are KZ
and KZ2. From 6th to 10th September, the Prokart
Raceland in Wackersdorf (in Bavaria, Germany) is hosting the KZ single event
of the World Championship and also the CIK-FIA International Super Cup for
the KZ2. Two weeks later, at the PFi circuit in Brandon (UK), it will be time
for the OK and OKJ categories to compete for the world title.
Duels on video from Bavaria.
162 drivers entered the Wackersdorf event for the KZ and KZ2,
to try to achieve a success which could be the top fulfilment of the season.

The challenge to Paolo De Conto in KZ.
In KZ, Paolo De Conto (CRG-TM-Bridgestone, in the photo above) is the holder
of the most recent and important titles: he is the winner of the 2016 World
Championship and of the just ended 2017 European Championship. Curiously, the
Italian driver won both the titles on the Swedish circuit of Kristianstad,
where the CIK-FIA European event finished few weeks ago. De Conto is eager to
confirm his recent performance, while his opponents are definitely looking to
seize the occasion to beat him. It is the case of the Czech Patrik Hajek
(Kosmic-Vortex) and the Dutch drivers Marijn Kremers (BirelArt-TM), Bas
Lammers (Sodi-TM) and Stan Pex (CRG-TM), who finished all behind the Italian
in the European Championship. Good chance also for the German Leon Köhler
(Tony Kart-Vortex), the new KZ2 European Champion, promoted to KZ.
Lots of frontrunners in KZ2.
After the new European champion Leon Köhler (in the photo
to KZ, the driver to beat in KZ2 is the Italian Paolo Ippolito
(Lenzo-LKE-Bridgestone), category runner-up of the 2017 European
Championship. Among the other drivers who can aim at victory in Wackersdorf
are the Italian Alex Irlando and the French Tom Leuillet (both on Sodi-TM),
top drivers at the European Championship together with the Dutch Martijn van
Leeuwen (Energy-TM) and the Lithuanian Rokas Baciuska (Sodi-TM).
