Race Report - Lonato

WSK Euro Series Round 3

20-23 June 2019

After being in Kristianstad in Sweden, KR team principal Dino Chiesa decided the time had arrived for Lorenzo to switch to OK Senior.

Of course this move was brave and anticipated but it provided the opportunity to gain experience in the category where Lorenzo will be next year.

So, as part of this new challenge, he was in Lonato for the WSK Euro Series last weekend.

Immediately Lorenzo showed he liked the power of the OK kart and was on the pace very quickly. In a field of 60 competitors he managed to qualify a good P 24, three-tenths off the pole.

In the heats he was in a fighting mood and finished P 12, P 7 and P 15, but unfortunately suffered bumper penalties twice.

Anyway in the pre-Final Lorenzo got 11th place, qualifying for the Final where he placed 19th; a very good result for the first time in the top category of karting.

Now Lorenzo is going to Adria this weekend (26-29 June) for the night time edition of the WSK Euro Series. Good luck!
