Strengthened by his incredible recovery in the Final of the third event in the European karting championship disputed at the circuit of Portimao, Karol Basz has signed his debut at the demanding Mugello Circuit, at the wheel of the Lamborghini Huracan of the Antonelli Motorsport.
Thanks to the fourth place gained in pre-final, the Polish driver of the Kosmic Racing keeps his high position in the championship standings, at just five lengths from the top. Unfortunately, in the Final he was victim of a collision that forced him to move back up to the 28th position. With a great determination, he managed to recover up to the eleventh position, also signing the fastest lap of the race. After the pause at the circuit of Vallelunga earlier this year, waiting for the final event on the Belgian circuit in Genk scheduled for the end of the month, Karol is back at the wheel of the powerful supercar of Sant’Agata Bolognese. He is improving his feeling with the car, protagonist of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo, and is becoming familiar with the Tuscan circuit and its 5.245 meters.
“We are really satisfied about the first real testing day with the Lamborghini Huracan. We went into the circuit of Mugello with just 20 laps-experience that we did seven months ago in Vallelunga. In spite of his inexperience, Karol has emerged with an advantage of ’51”7 with used tires. We knew he would have done well, but he surprised us anyway. Now we must work to give him the opportunity to present himself on the grid of the 2017 Lamborghini Super Trofeo Championship.Obviously, a special thank goes to the Antonelli team and to its team principal, Marco, who gave us this opportunity. Tomorrow we will focus again on the seasonal events. The last engagements in the German and European championships are awaiting us” manager Giovanni Minardi and Alberto Tonti say enthusiastically.
“It has been an amazing day to me. Another important experience with this marvelous Lamborghini Huracan in a very nice circuit. I must to thank both Minardi and Europart for this amazing experience. Now I am going to dedicate myself to the last karting events to complete the season at the best”, Karol Basz says.
