After winning in WSK Gold Cup and in the opening game of WSK Super Master Series at Adria, Karol Basz grants his third winning, achieving also the second round on the track of Castelletto and confirming his leadership with 180 points in ranking.
Bad weather conditioned the weekend, putting to the test the skills of all 33 drivers involved along the 1,285 meters of the International Circuit 7 Laghi in Pavia. A difficult weekend beginning from the bearer of Kosmic Racing Team, who became the protagonist of a great comeback in the second Qualifying heat, after winning the first one and being hit on the second lap. Finishing back at the 24th position, he came back until the twelfth place, winning the eighth place in standings. Thanks to two sensational starts that left public and experts stunned, the Polish driver of Minardi Management showed on track all his talent, even in difficult wet track conditions, gaining a splendid double in the pre-final and final, which are worth the nickname: “Rain wizard”. In pre-final, he outdistanced the second driver with more than 21 sec, which is definitely a lot in the world of karting.
“Another fantastic weekend, despite the pouring rain. It wasn’t certainly an easy weekend, especially in the second Qualifying heat, after winning the first one. In the pre-final and final everything went very well, despite very difficult track conditions. I recovered positions until finishing first, confirming me leading the standings“, Karol Basz says.
“It’s really a pleasure to see Karol in action, in both wet and dry conditions. He’s a complete driver, who doesn’t lose heart because of unlucky situations, like in the second Qualifying heat. With great intelligence, he recovered positions until the double success of pre-final and final. He has improved a lot compared with last season, especially considering this aspect. Two very important successes, both for spirits and in view of the other seasonal events. He impressed with two amazing starts, being protagonist of breath-taking overtakings“, Alberto Tonti says.
Karol Basz’ next appointment is planned at La Conca circuit, the third round of WSK Super Master Series on the weekend of April 9th – 12nd.
