Lonato del Garda (ITA), 29.01.2022
It was an important day at South Garda Karting, Lonato where the qualifying heats at the first of the four rounds of the WSK Super Master Series saw the event contenders coming to the fore from the 265 drivers from 50 different countries contesting KZ2, OK, OKJ and MINI. It has been a good sporting and technical challenge with the participation of all the constructors and a lot of international champions being challenged by several emerging talents.
The German Trefilov leads KZ2.
The German David Trefilov (Maranello SRP/Maranello-TM Racing-Vega) confirmed to be on top of KZ2 after claiming the pole position and winning two heats. Two victories were also scored by the French driver Jeremy Iglesias (CRG Racing Team/CRG-TM Racing), but his position is spoiled by a bad result in the first heat held on Friday, that was won by the Italian Giuseppe Palomba (BirelART Racing/BirelART-TM Racing). The Dutch driver Senna Van Walstijn (Sodikart/Sodikart-TM Racing) had a positive day. He recently won the WSK Champions Cup and was very competitive on this occasion too, as he won one heat.

The pole-sitter from Brazil, Matheus Ferreira (KR Motorsport/KR-Iame) is chasing him in P2. The third place is currently occupied by the Brit Freddie Slater (Ricky Flynn Motorsport/LN-Vortex).

The Dutch driver Lammers leads OKJ after the successful campaigns in MINI.
A lot of protagonists came to the fore in OK-Junior. This category counts 30% of the drivers that come from the smaller category, as the winner of last year’s MINI René Lammers (Parolin Motorsport/Parolin-TM Racing-Vega), who is currently leading the provisional classification of OKJ with 3 wins in the heats. The Swiss Enea Frey (Ricky Flynn/LN-Vortex) was also among the quickest. He won 3 heats as the Russian Dmitry Matveev (Koski Motorsport/Tony Kart-Vortex).
