Kart – An opening podium for Karol Basz in OK

Karol Basz has just started his second season with the Kosmic Racing material at Adria in the new OK category. On the Rovigo’s circuit, scene of the WSK Championship Cup, the Polish driver handled by Minardi Management conquered the pre-final victory with almost five seconds lead on the first of his chasers, and he ended the first weekend with the absolute second place in Final.

Once again, Karol showed all his skill on a wet track, signed the fastest lap in the pre-final B and the second best chrono of the Final, where he was protagonist of an  enjoyable recovery.

It’s nice to start the season with a second place. This year we have a fully new engine, so we start again from zero. It will be a hard season and we’ll have a lot of work to do and a lot to learn. Everything functioned perfectly in the first round. This will be a funny season to us”,  Karol Basz says.

Even if we missed the top step of the podium, I am glad for this result and for Karol’s beginning. A Pre-final victory and a Final second place after being in fourth. Once again he proved very fast under the rain Alberto Tonti of the Minardi Management observes.

This year Karol will also be ambassador of the “Young Athletes Foundation” based in Cracow. “I am honored to join and to represent this foundation. We will also be able to introduce the children to our sport, encouraging them to make the best choice. This foundation gathers many disciplines. Being part of it makes me proud. I have been fascinated by competition since I was a child, and I fell in love with motoring at my first turn with a go-kart” Karol observes, highlighting how much a team sports like motorsport is challenging. “A driver is nobody without a good team, and a team will never achieve good results without a good driver. In our sport, victory is played on fractions of seconds. Details make the difference for a victory or a defeat“.
