CRG secured a splendid win in KZ2 with Paolo De Conto and a double podium in OK with Pedro Hiltbrand and in OK-Junior with Gabriel Bortoleto in the second round of the WSK Super Master Series held in La Conca.

The WSK Super Master Series has run its second round of the season in La Conca, after skipping the round of Lonato due to snow. The weather in the south of Italy has indeed been different, with a pleasant springy sun that allowed all drivers to show their best.

Paolo De Conto has been the main protagonist of KZ2. In his WSK 2018 debut he claimed a spectacular win on CRG-Tm at the end of an hard-fought duel with Marco Ardigò, who was still very competitive despite being at the comeback after a long absence from racing. The reigning world champion of CRG dominated the weekend though, securing the pole position, keeping the lead after heats, winning the Prefinal and taking the victory in the Final. De Conto has climbed on top of the classification thanks to these results.

Benjamin Tornqvist, 11th with CRG Holland and Emilien Denner, 14th on Kalì-Kart-Tm, also run two solid races in KZ2. The other CRG factory driver, Alessandro Giardelli, ended 22nd after a brilliant qualifying, while Marco Valenti was 27th.

Pedro Hiltbrand secured the third step of the podium in OK on CRG-Tm at the end of a good race. He has put in a crescendo of results over the weekend, starting from the 14th place of qualifying to the seventh after heats. Regarding the other CRG factory drivers, the Spanish Kilian Meyer was eighth and Andrea Rosso 17th. Franco Colapinto could not qualify for the Final instead, after a good qualifying stage, while Callum Bradshaw had a similar fate, as he had to retire from the Prefinal. Hiltbrand is currently eighth in the classification, Meyer is 11th.

Another good podium was obtained in OK-Junior by Gabriel Bortoleto, who ended second. The young Brazilian has been one of the main protagonists of the junior category on his CRG-Tm. He was sixth in qualifying and fifth after the heats, claiming also a victory. Bortoleto recovered well in Prefinal, climbed up to P2, sliding in the leading group of the Final and holding the lead for a while, before ending the race in P2. Bortoleto is currently second in the classification, 36 points shy of the leader. Enzo Trulli was 17th, while Alfio Spina, just missed out on qualifying for the Final due also to a penalty.

Pedro Hiltbrand secured the third step of the podium in OK at Winter Cup, Fabian Federer alike in KZ2 with Team SRP. Paolo De Conto completed a great comeback race. Gabriel Bortoleto off in the Final, after being among the main protagonists of OK-Junior.

Weather conditions have affected the performance of CRG drivers at the 23rd edition of the Winter Cup of Lonato, but two well-deserved podiums rewarded Pedro Hiltbrand’s combative performance in OK and Fabian Federer’s race in KZ2 with Team SRP.

Cold and rain that made the tarmac tricky on Saturday and on Sunday did not help the performance of the Italian outfit’s drivers. In particular, these conditions did not help Paolo De Conto in KZ2, who managed nevertheless to recover from some contacts in the heats making good show of the competitiveness of his CRG-Tm chassis in the Final, when he recovered from last to an excellent P8, and did not help Gabriel Bortoleto either, as he slipped off at the “chicane” during OK-Junior’s lap one, when holding P4 after being among the quickest of the weekend.

KZ2. Fabian Federer, on track with Team SRP, clinched the third step of the podium at the end of an overall good performance, finishing behind Ben Hanley and Anthony Abbasse. Paolo De Conto took three second places in the heats, but was later on involved in three incidents in the following heats and in the Super Heat, which forced him to start the Final from the last place on the starting grid. He managed anyway to complete a stunning comeback up to the eighth place. It would have been difficult to get something more. Among CRG protagonists in KZ2, good performances were put in by Jorrit Pex, who was 10th in the Final, the Swiss Jean Luyet was 16th, while Alessandro Giardelli was fourth absolute in qualifying being 0.049s shy of the pole position and ended 17th in the Final. Benjamin Tornqvist of CRG Holland was 20th, Andrea Dalè 23rd for team Nuova 3M and Stan Pex 28th. Emilien Denner (Kalì-Kart) just missed out to qualify for the Final, as happened to Michael Rosina, Marco Valenti and Filippo Berto, that could not get into the top 34 despite the good times posted in practice.

OK. In OK, Pedro Hiltbrand managed to confirm his speed in the Final, leading his CRG-Tm to the third step of the podium, after being seventh in qualifying practice and constantly scoring good results in the heats, in a crescendo of results that reached its top with the second place in his Super Heat. Callum Bradshaw ended a very good performance within the top ten in P10, while Kilian Meyer was handed a 10s time penalty (dropped front fairing) and was pushed down to P13. Franco Colapinto ended behind in P17, but he put in a good recovery after the practice times and results of the heats. Some episodes in the heats prevented Andrea Rosso from qualifying for the Final, as happened to the two drivers from Hong Kong Royce Yu and Frederik Lee. The Final was won by Hannes Janker.

OK-JUNIOR. A good performance was expected from Gabriel Bortoleto in OK-Junior, and the Brazilian was in fact among the protagonists until the Final, when he was betrayed by the braking at the chicane of the first lap slipping wide on the tricky tarmac due to the rain fallen on Saturday. That was a real shame since Bortoleto could have scored a good result, as shown by his victory in the Super Heat. The Final was won by Paul Aron. Among the other CRG drivers, Luca Giardelli was 16th, Alfio Spina 22nd but showed sensible improvements in his debut in the category, as done by Enzo Trulli, who was 24th. Malaysia’s Adam Putera and the two Americans Tyler Maxson and Elio Giovane could not qualify for the Final in what was their first experience in a hard-fought and difficult race like the Winter Cup.
MINI ROK. The best results for CRG in Mini Rok were obtained by Hayden Lupifieri, who was ninth at the end of a good comeback race. The Russian Dmitry Matveev of Team Gamoto was 16th instead, while the other Russian Kostantin Krapin of CRG Holland ended 26th. The victory went to Andrea Kimi Antonelli.
