THE WSK EURO SERIES REACHES LA CONCA WITH A FURTHER TECHNICAL INNOVATION.
Thursday, June 21, 2012
The WSK Euro karting Series goes on with the year and is heading forMuro Leccese, Italy (LE) for the third of the four rounds in 2012. The coming week, from 21 to 24 June, WSK Promotion’s European Series is stopping at La Conca International Circuit where the chase for the victory in the 5 classes (KZ1, KZ2, KF2, KF3 and 60 Mini) will not be the only subject of interest. Indeed, the Apulian circuit will display a technical innovation for safety: for the first time in a karting event, it will be used a lighting system thatgives information to the drivers through special light posts.
THE SYSTEM TRACKSA STRAIGHT FROM F.1. The lighting system designed for the motorsport tracks is called Tracksa. It is a system whose purpose is toimprove markedly the safety standards by shortening drivers’ information and reaction time. The devices consist in safety light posts that, by a flashing led system, reproduce the flag colours generally used in the racetracks. Operating in advance of marshals, these light posts give the drivers a better if not decisive information. WSK Promotion therefore has chosen to use this technology in the karting events by fixing its debut at La Conca.
OVER 230 DRIVERS LIVE ON TV AT LA CONCA.The drivers entered at the third round of the WSK Euro Series are over 230 from 40 countries worldwide. In MuroLeccese, the early final sprint will be covered live on Rai Sport that will broadcast Sunday afternoon’s Finals at La Conca International Circuit. For KZ1, KZ2, KF2 and KF3, the ultimate round will be in Spain, at the circuit in Zuera, which will be the location for the 4. and closing round, on August 5. At La Conca instead, 60 Mini, which is the class for young drivers from 10 up, will compete for the crowning win in the special ranking of the WSK Betitaly Series at its second and final round.
