ANOTHER WIN OF MAX VERSTAPPEN AND, THIS TIME, IN KZ1, WITH JORRIT PEX EXCELLENT RUNNER-UP AFTER HIS EARLY LEAD IN FINAL -1. ON SUNDAY THE LONGED-FOR SECOND FINAL OF THIS FIRST ROUND OF THE WSK EURO SERIES, WITH JORDON LENNOX THIRD, THREE CRG CHASSIS IN THE FIRST FOUR PLACES.

La Conca (Lecce - Italy). Max Verstappen is unstoppable and wins hands down also in KZ1 in the opening round of the WSK Euro Series on the international circuit La Conca of Muro Leccese. The Dutch driver on CRG-Tm wins the first final on Saturday after winning the two qualifying heats in the morning.

VERSTAPPEN'S FIRST SUCCESS IN KZ1. After winning in KZ2 in the first round of the WSK Master Series at the beginning of February and, a fortnight later, in KF2 in the Winter Cup of Lonato, Max Verstappen was simply unbeatable also in KZ1 in this first of the WSK Euro series.

The excellent CRG's result in the first KZ1 Final on Saturday was completed by the second place achieved by Jorrit Pex (CRG-Tm), CRG Holland's standard-bearer, who got an early lead deservedly but was then obliged to give in when Verstappen closed the gap - the Dutch driver had lost some positions at the start.
For CRG the 'hat-trick' was completed by the excellent fourth position of Jordon Lennox-Lamb on CRG-Maxter directly prepared by the factory. He, too, led an outstanding race and arrived in fourth, even setting the fastest time.

In the top ten there is also Andrea Dalè, on CRG-Maxter, eighth. Bad luck, on the other hand, for Friday's poleman Fabian Federer, on CRG-Modena, who wasted his advantage with two jump-starts in the two morning heats: both the jump-starts were punished by 10-second penalties. So, in his final he had to close the gap and he managed to recover as far as 11th place.
Davide Forè (CRG-Maxter) placed 14th preceding Lorenzo Camplese (CRG-Tm), while Jonathan Thonon was obliged to retire for a technical trouble after an excellent series of overtaking manoeuvres and fast laps.

in KZ2 Final-1, won by Negro, Alfredo Delli Compagni on CRG-Tm placed 9th, Giovanni Martinez (CRG-Maxter), at his debut in this category, 13th after closing the gap from the bottom of the pack.

IN KF CLAMAN DEMELO IS OUTSTANDING. In KF the good period of the Canadian Zachary Claman DeMelo on CRG-Bmb continues: he performed well in the heats on Saturday and, finally, he managed to grab an excellent second place in the last heat of the day. Great performance also for the Spanish Alex Palou at his first experience in this category on CRG-Parilla, third in one of the heats and always in the top ten. On the other hand, the KF2 World champion Felice Tiene had some troubles. Together with his KVS preparer he concentrated on the development of the new Parilla engine. Good qualifying, so far, also for Niclas Nylund, while the Japanese Fuma Horio, for the time being, occupies a half ranking position. Heats finish on Sunday morning.

IN KFJ DE FRANCESCO, SHWARTZMAN AND PEX PERFORM WELL. In the KF Junior, among the CRG drivers, Devlin De Francesco of DFR stands out together with the Russian Robert Shwartzman of Forza Racing and Stan Pex of CRG Holland, who even achieved a third place in one of the heats. Here too heats finish on Sunday morning.

MARTINEZ LEADER IN THE MINI. In the smallest category, the hard-fought 60 Mini, the Spanish Eliseo Martinez (CRG/Hero-Lke) of Gamoto Racing is the leader at the end of the qualifying heats thanks to a double win. In this category, the final phase includes Pre-final and Final on Sunday. Also the other Gamoto driver, the Malaysian Abdul Gafar Muizzuddin, performed well and is third after the three heats.
