The WSK Super Master Series Rnd. 1 in Lonato has been a very useful weekend from a technical point of view for the Kalì Kart official team.

For the first time, the Kalì Kart squad was on track in full force in the Mini, OK and KZ categories and it is normal that some organizational and technical mechanisms were not yet at 100% of the potential. The balance of the weekend was in any case positive, both from a sporting and technical point of view. For what concerns the results, Cristian Blandino’s new win in the Mini category stands out: he now leads the championship standings with 76 points.

Also Nikita Ljubimov had a leading weekend with Kalì Kart colours. The Estonian driver started P3 in the Final and finished P5 under the chequered flag, after having also been leader of the race. The weekend for the Mini drivers in the Under 10 class was more complicated, with Ben Piscopo out of the Final after a contact in Qualifying, which compromised his weekend and Pedro Campus only P29, due to some technical problems.

In the OK category, the weekend was very useful for understanding the functioning of the 2024 tires, which required many setup adjustments to achieve a good level of performance. The best of the Kalì Kart drivers was Peter Stiller who started P17 from the starting grid of the Final, after excellent performances in the Qualifying Heats, but his Final ended due to a contact after just 3 corners of the 1st lap. Aleksandar Bogunovic, very fast in the Prefinal on Sunday morning, unfortunately suffered an engine problem in the Final, finishing only P23, while Stefano Pedani missed the Final by a few points.

Finally, first race with the sole aim of gaining experience for Simone Bianco in KZ. His weekend was as expected with many ups and downs but a lot of potential has already been seen and his adaptation process to the new category will be very rapid.

Next race: Cremona in 2 weeks.
