CRG HITTING THE DKM JACKPOT IN LONATO
CRG has claimed three titles with Jorrit Pex in KZ2, Dennis Hauger in OK and Kas Haverkort in OK-Junior at the closing round of DKM held in Lonato.

The German Championship DKM has seen once again CRG having the upper hand an the rivals thanks to several solid results in the closing round held at the South Garda Karting circuit in Lonato, that has ended with Jorrit Pex taking the victory in KZ2 and Dennis Hauger and Kas Haverkort alike, respectively in OK and OK-Junior.

The race in Lonato, that was the debut of the DKM Championship with 170 drivers on track, has been quite tricky due to the weather conditions, but the competitiveness of CRG drivers has been great in all grades.

SIXTH WIN FOR JORRIT PEX IN KZ2

Jorrit Pex claimed his sixth DKM title in KZ2 on CRG-Tm, after winning it for four years running from 2011 to 2014 and then again in 2016. The Dutch driver of CRG Holland has been among the best since qualifying and heats in Lonato, ending third in Race-1 and securing the title one race early in this way. Jorrit Pex closed Race-2 in seventh place, but with the Championship victory firmly in his hands.

Jorrit Pex commented the victory in this way: “This is has been my sixth championship now. It was a good season, I was on top 3 in eight of the ten races and I scored three victories in the two rounds in Wackersdorf. It has been a good competition in DKM, very good organization, many good drivers and I liked the tracks we used. When it is a good competition of course you like to win, especially for the sixth time. This was the first time in Lonato and it has been very nice, a lot of drivers. Next year the first race will be in Lonato and I think it will be full fields. Very nice.”

Among the quickest in KZ2, Jorrit’s younger brother Stan Pex ended the championship in third position, while SRP Racing Team’s Fabian Federer followed him in fourth. Flavio Camponeschi could not make it to the start of this closing round in Lonato, as he is still recovering from the injuries sustained in the recent World Championship in England and ended the DKM campaign in fifth place. His end result made it 4 CRG drivers in the top 5.

Among the young drivers in force at CRG, Alessandro Giardelli is turning out to very competitive. He has been very quick also in this occasion taking P7 in qualifying and P6 after the heats. The victory of the two finals of Lonato’s closer went to Jeremy Iglesias, who is the runner-up in the championship, and to Matteo Zanchi.

DENNIS HAUGER CHAMPION ALSO IN OK

In OK, the Norwegian Dennis Hauger ended his happy experience in karting on CRG-Iame on a high, before switching to car racing next year. Hauger managed to take the championship victory thanks to Race-1’s victory in Lonato, at the end of quite an eventful race. He therefore claimed another DKM title after winning last year’s OK-Junior campaign. Hauger secured the title one race early at the end of Race-1 having the best of his nearest rival David Schumacher, before taking another podium in Race-2 with P5. Hauger has obtained 5 wins in DKM with CRG in this season: one in Kerpen, three in Wackersdorf and the final one in Lonato.

Among CRG drivers, Kilian Meyer has been shining taking P7 in Race-1 in his comeback to karting after a wrist injury, while Tim Troger and Michael Rosina also ended Race-2 in the top ten, as they respectively ended ninth and tenth.

CRG AND PAOLO DE CONTO CONFIRMED TO BE EUROPEAN CHAMPIONS IN KZ IN SWEDEN
CRG drivers ended on a high the sixth and closing round of the European Champions that took place in Kristianstad. In KZ, Paolo De Conto was on the podium again. Sasse third in OK-Junior, Di Mauro second in KZ2 and Dennis Hauger great fourth in OK.

Some rain made the final stages of the European Championship even trickier in Sweden, as all categories – namely, KZ, KZ2, OK and OK-Junior, have been battling out the CIK-FIA Continental title. CRG colors eventually obtained very satisfying results.
The circuit of Kristianstad has staged the closer of the European Championship, after the rounds run in Sarno – Italy (KZ, OK, OK-Junior), in Genk – Belgium (KZ, KZ2), in Oviedo – Spain (KZ, OK, OK-Junior), in Le Mans – France (KZ2, OK, OK-Junior) and last week in Alahärmä – Finland (OK-OK-Junior).

DE CONTO KZ EUROPEAN CHAMPION AGAIN

KZ. Paolo De Conto has honoured at best the KZ title mathematically won in Le Mans on CRG-Tm. The Italian driver of CRG secured his second European Championship title after taking the KZ World Championship in Kristianstad in 2016. In Sweden, Paolo De Conto kicked off the weekend with a very last minute problem making him skip qualifying. In the heats he recovered well anyway, installing himself in a briliant fourth place. This has not been the first time during the season that De Conto had to start the Final from the second row of the grid. In fact that happened already in the first two rounds held in Sarno and Genk, where he managed to take the win anyway. In Kristianstad, a recovery was not that easy due also to the wet tarmac, but Paolo De Conto has put in a strong Final anyway, taking a third place in this occasion. Alongside the full haul in Sarno, Genk and Le Mans, the third place taken in Kristianstad confirmed CRG and Paolo De Conto as KZ European Champions in 2017.

Paolo De Conto’s comment at the end of the Final in Kristianstad: “I am very happy with this race because I came here with the title, just to drive without taking penalties which could have compromised the end result. I am happy because I drove on the wet and now we know we need to find something to be quicker. I want to congratulate with my rivals because I run an amazing race without errors but I did not have the speed to win. So congratulations to them and see you in Germany at Wackersdorf for the World Championship”.

In KZ, the two Pex brothers, that have been protagonist of the German DKM Championship in this season, have not been as competitive in Kristianstad: Jorrit Pex was fifth, while his brother Stan Pex had to retire 9 laps into the race.

SASSE THIRD IN OK-JUNIOR

OK-JUNIOR. In the OK-Junior Final, which was run on wet tarmac but without rain falling, the German of CRG TB Racing Team Hugo Sasse confirmed to be the most competitive of CRG drivers during this weekend in Sweden, ending right at the feet of the podium, a result that was later on converted into a P3 due to the penalty handed to Edgar. Sasse, after posting the best absolute time in qualifying and taking the fourth position after heats (a victory and two second places), ended the Final in fourth place, but was later on promoted to third, while the Dutch driver Kas Haverkort of CRG Keijzer Racing followed him. The Brazilian of CRG Gabriel Bortoleto was among the main protagonists of the heats and he managed to install himself in P12 early on in the Final, but then had to concede some positions to end his race in 16th place. Eventually, he was handed a 10s time penalty that relegated him to P20. The Spanish driver Francisco Sagrera was 15th, while Luca Giardelli did not manage to qualify for the Final despite a positive 10th place in the closing qualifying heat, as happened to Donar Munding, Mathias Torreggiani and Davids Trefilovs of SRP Racing Team.

The OK-Junior Final was won by Jack Doohan, while the Championship was won by the British driver Jonny Edgar, who was fourth following a 10s time penalty.

STRONG PERFORMANCE BY DI MAURO, SECOND IN KZ2

KZ2. The Swedish driver of CRG Holland Benjamin Tornqvist had been the quickest of the CRG lot ahead of the KZ2 Final, but he lost 15 positions at the start. The Brazilian Gaetano Di Mauro, managed to recover a lot of positions at the getaway on CRG-Tm instead. He had been previously protagonist of the qualifying stages on the humid tarmac, recovering up to P2 from the starting P14 thanks to some very effective driving. Max Tubben of CRG Holland has also been among the quickest of the Final putting in a stunning recovery from P30, as the Spanish Gerard Cebrian Ariza who started 22nd. At the flag, Gaetano Di Mauro claimed an excellent P2, taking the third podium for CRG in Kristianstad. The young Max Tubben took a very good fourth place. Benjamin Tornqvist eventually recovered up to P11, but was later on relegated to P13 by a penalty. Gerard Cebrian Ariza was 17th. The other Spanish driver of CRG Enrico Prosperi was out of the Final by a whisker, as happened to the Finn Petteri Ruotsalainen and Alessandro Giardelli, the latter despite a good qualifying.

DENNIS HAUGER PROTAGONIST OF OK AGAIN

OK. The closing OK Final was run on a nearly dry circuit and the young Norwegian of CRG Dennis Hauger has been stunning since the start, one of the strongest protagonists despite being in his maiden year following last year’s OK-Junior campaign. Hauger has joined the battle for the lead, taking also P1 for a while, but eventually he slipped down to third until when 7 laps were left to go, when he was overtaken by Travisanutto and closed his effort in P4.
The British 2016 Academy Champion of CRG Callum Bradshaw was sixth recovering some solid 9 positions posting also the fastest lap of the race. CRG Keijzer Racing’s Glenn Van Berlo was 12th leading the German Hannes Janker. The Spanish driver Kilian Meyer ended 20th at the end of a good recovery from the back of the starting grid.

CRG had a great start of the DKM in Germany at the circuit of Ampfing dominating KZ and scoring great results also in OK and OK-Junior.

The round of Ampfing has been the opener of DKM and CRG has been protagonist once again with its drivers, after last year’s very successful campaign in which the Italian make secured the title in all categories.
CRG kept its momentum in Ampfing especially in KZ winning Race-1 with Flavio Camponeschi as CRG chassis locked out the podium, and Race-2 with Stan Pex, as five CRG chassis completed the top five. This was an absolute dominant run.

CRG, CLEAR DOMINATION IN KZ

Flavio Camponeschi, back to KZ for the occasion with CRG Deutschland Rutsch & Herpich GbR, has been shining with the win qualifying heats and claiming an authoritative victory in Race-1 leading Jorrit Pex and Fabian Federer, while last year’s winner of the KZ2 Cup Max Tubben, closed his effort in P5. Alexander Schmitz and Stan Pex were also among the quickest of Race-1, ending respectively seventh and ninth for CRG Holland. Among the emerging talents, Alessandro Giardelli posted a great time in qualifying, posting tenth quickest laptime just one tenth off pole sitter Fabian Federer, but in Race-1 Giardelli has been forced to the retirement due to a contact early into the race. Mirko Torsellini had some problems and was 25th in qualifying and 18th in Race-1.

Flavio Camponeschi’s comment after Race-1: “I am really happy about the result of race one. A really good race, I did not make mistakes. It was really hard as the others were very close behind me and there was no room for error. I just focused on the race, I kept concentration high in every single corner. This championship is very competitive and I am happy for the result. It was a great team effort.”

The second final saw Stan Pex coming to the fore dominating Race-2 after a recovery run started from P9, but Flavio Camponeschi has also been superb after a contact with Daniel Stell early on. Camponeschi lost a few places but then made up for the lost time climbing back to P3, engaging a battle for second with Jorrit Pex. CRG colors monopolized the five-places podium of DKM with Stan Pex, Jorrit Pex, Camponeschi, Federer and Schmitz closing in the order. Tubben finished in the top ten in eighth place, Toni Tschentscher was ninth with SRP racing Team. Giardelli has been quick and aggressive recovering 14 places to the 18th final place, Torsellini was still affected by some technical issues and ended 20th.

Stan Pex’s comment: “We did a good job in Race-2, while everybody chose to put on new tyres in the first final I went for the old ones. We won Race-2, so I think it was a good choice. I had a good start from P9, I got some positions back and then I passed the others, built a bit of a gap and it was easier in the end. I am happy for my brother Jorrit, he also run a good race, and scored some good points with two second places, but I am happier for my win! It was good racing especially in the front, high level, a lot of fans. We are very happy about this first race of DKM.”

In KZ2 Cup, the Dutch driver of CRG Holland Jeroen Bos was third in Race-1, while Luka Kamali and SRP Racing Team claimed P3 in the second race.

MEYER VERY QUICK IN OK

The young Spanish driver Kilian Meyer of CRG Holland has been under the spotlight in OK, taking a stunning pole position and showing a good confidence in his first season in this category. Among CRG drivers, the Dutch Glenn Van Berlo of CRG Keijzer Racing Team has been the best taking the second place leading team mate Luca Maisch, while Meyer closed his effort in P4. DKM 2016 Junior title winner Dennis Hauger was eventually seventh. He won the race leading the runner up by more than 2 seconds, but was then handed a 5s time penalty due to the front fairing dropped at the start from P10. Meyer confirmed to be among the quickest in Race-2 ending fourth, leading CRG TB Racing Team’s Tim Troger and Hauger. Maisch was eighth instead.

SASSE THE BEST OF CRG DRIVERS IN OK-JUNIOR

Following the pole position set by Fabian Federer in KZ and that of Kilian Meyer in OK, CRG has claimed another pole position in OK-Junior with the German of CRG TB Racing Team Hugo Sasse. Sasse confirmed his speed also in the heats and later on ended Race-1 in second place, as team mate Niels Troger was fourth and RL-Competition’s Marius Zug fifth. Sasse claimed a fourth place in Race-2 leading Troger and Zug, while Pietro Delli Guanti was seventh in Race-2 at the debut with the CRG colors of team CRG Keijzer, leading the Spanish driver Donar Nils Munding of Kalì-Kart Stern Motorsport. Luca Giardelli was twentieth instead in Race-1 and twenty-seventh in Race-2.

CRG STARTING THE EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP ON A HIGH
Paolo De Conto won the first round of the KZ European Championship in Sarno, Stan Pex and Mirko Torsellini also put in good races. Gabriel Bortoleto claimed his maiden podium in OK-Junior, while some hiccups affected the performance of CRG drivers in OK.

CRG celebrates with Paolo De Conto, on CRG-Tm-Bridgestone, and Gabriel Bortoleto, on CRG-Parilla-Vega, the first round of the European Championship, as De Conto scored a great victory in KZ, while the young Bortoleto claimed a good second place in OK-Junior.

The first weekend of the CIK-FIA campaign offered good satisfactions to CRG in KZ and also in OK-Junior, thanks to a new young protagonist, but disappointed a bit in OK, where Dennis Hauger was the best of CRG’s lot in P11 and Flavio Camponeschi had to retire due to a technical problem.

DE CONTO LEADING THE CLASSIFICATION IN KZ

Paolo De Conto honoured in the best possible way the title of reigning world champion, winning a great race at the end of an overall good weekend, that had started with a “near” pole position – missed by just 0.002s and a win, a fourth and third place in the three heats.

Paolo De Conto radiant after the victory in Sarno commented the race in this way: “I am really very happy, I knew I could do well. We did a solid step forward compared to the latest WSK races. We found the right way to improve the chassis and engine setups. Stan Pex helped me easing my overtaking to the lead. After that, I did not have any problems and I took the win without pushing 100%. I feel a lot better, I recovered well from the snowboarding incident. This has been a good victory, it is great to start the European Championship in such a way. I needed that. I dedicate this victory to the whole CRG team and to my mechanics.”

Stan Pex also run a strong weekend. Fourth in qualifying and in the Final, he was just three tenths off the podium after taking the lead of the Final for two laps before letting De Conto through at lap five, as the latter kept running towards a dominating win. The two CRG drivers are currently first and third in the standings. The way ahead is still long, but the charts are already led by CRG drivers.

Mirko Torsellini’s debut in KZ with CRG has been very positive too. He has been very quick in the Final, exhibiting a race pace matching that of the pace setters and recovering very well from a difficult start due to the 18th time in qualifying. Torsellini improved to the closing P6 in the Final. Former European champion Andrea Dalè also put in a good performance, ending eighth, while the Spanish Enrico Prosperi was 14th and Jorrit Pex, who crossed the finish line in P6, was relegated to the 15th place by a penalty due to the mis-positioned front fairing. Alessandro Giardelli closed 19th his first race in KZ in what is his first year in a shifter category.

MAIDEN OK-JUNIOR PODIUM FOR BORTOLETO

The young Brazilian of CRG Gabriel Bortoleto has been one of the main protagonists of the OK-Junior in the European weekend of Sarno. After fighting in the leading group, Bortoleto completed a great Final with an excellent second place behind the Briton Jonny Edgar and leading the Belgian-German O’neill Muth. The Dutch driver of CRG Keijzer Racing Kas Haverkort had to retire after taking the pole position and setting the new absolute record of the circuit of Sarno for the category in 59.159s. Alongside Haverkort, Bortoleto had been very fast in qualifying posting a 59.179s as his best time in the first of the three qualifying sessions, which confirmed the great speed of the CRG-Parilla equipment. Bortoleto is currently second in the championship just 4 points shy of the lead.
Among CRG finalists, the German Luca Maisch of CRG TB Racing Team was 11th, the Spaniard Francisco Sagrera was 18th and Jose Antonio Gomez 21st. The French Gillian Henrion, the German Donar Munding and the Italians Luca Giardelli and Mathias Torreggiani could not get access to the Final instead.

HAUGER BEHIND, CAMPONESCHI DNF IN OK

In OK, Dennis Hauger did his best to recover from an unlucky qualifying where he was only 37th. Hauger recovered well in the three heats, but in the fourth and decisive race he was stopped by an incident. The Norwegian driver of CRG has started the Final from the 18th spot of the grid and closed his effort in P11. Flavio Camponeschi also managed to recover well in the heats from the 28th time posted in qualifying. The Italian started the Final as 13th, but had to give up shortly after due to a technical problem. The other CRG finalist, Glenn Van Berlo of CRG Keijzer Racing, ended 20th. Michael Rosina, Hannes Janker, Kilian Meyer could not qualify for the Final, while Callum Bradshaw had the ill-starred idea to put the dropped front fairing back at the end of one heat, and for this reason he has been disqualified from the event. Bradshaw has not been the first to do this, the first driver to do so was in fact a former world champion a couple of years ago. He will certainly not be the last either, until this debated front fairing rule will be valid.

STUNNING CRG IN KERPEN! 4 OUT OF 4 TITLES IN DKM
CRG claimed all available titles in the closing stage of the German Championship DKM. Jorrit Pex victorious in KZ2, Max Tubben in KZ2 Cup, Paavo Tonteri in OK and Dennis Hauger in OK Junior.

CRG obtained an exceptional result at the German Championship DKM, that is the most competitive National Championship in Europe thanks to the presence of works teams. CRG won all 4 titles that were up for grabs, a stunning and unprecedented result!

The final round of DKM held in Kerpen awarded the KZ2 title to Jorrit Pex on CRG-Tm (CRG Holland), as Max Tubben obtained the in KZ2 Cup’s title on CRG-Tm (CRG Holland), while Paavo Tonteri on CRG-Parilla (CRG TB Racing Team) had already been in OK Champion since the race of Oschersleben, and Dennis Hauger was crowned OK Junior Champion on CRG-Parilla (CRG Holland).

The competitiveness of CRG chassis has been highlighted in this season finale on all the racing fields, starting from the KZ World Championship won by Paolo De Conto (CRG-Tm) in Sweden, the International CIK-FIA KZ2 title claimed by Pedro Hiltbrand (CRG-Maxter), who also won the Spanish Championship and the European OK Championship in Belgium on CRG-Parilla and the KZ2 European Championship won by Fabian Federer (CRG-Modena) in Belgium.

The Circuit of Kerpen witnessed the crushing finale put in by CRG drivers, that had taken the lead of DKM since the previous round of Oschersleben, before keeping their momentum and securing the titles in the closing round of the season.

FIFTH TITLE FOR JORRIT PEX (CRG-TM) IN KZ2

The Dutch driver Jorrit Pex built his KZ2 victory in Kerpen in a wise Final one, where he secured a fourth place that granted him the necessary points to claim his fifth DKM title after those won in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014, always on CRG. The first final was won by Jorrit’s brother Stan Pex, also on CRG and, as Jorrit, back to using a Tm engine unit. Jorrit Pex was then sent off track in Race-2 when racing among the pace setters, but the title was already firmly in his hands. Stan Pex took another podium in P3 in this second Final. Among CRG drivers, the Dutch driver Bent Viscaal ended in Race-1’s top ten in seventh place, while the Dutch Joey Hanssen was eighth in Race-2 and the Swede Benjamin Tornqvist was ninth.

TUBBEN KZ2 CUP CHAMPION (CRG-TM)

In KZ2 Cup, the new category reserved to emerging drivers that have not already obtained strong results in DKM or International races, the young and brilliant driver of CRG Holland Max Tubben came to the fore on CRG-Tm, winning the title with a big margin to his rivals. Tubben won Final one, and then ended Race-2 in second place. These results, alongside the previous four wins in Wackersdorf and Oschersleben gave him the Championship lead ahead of team mate Symen Wiggers. A good performance in Race-1 was also put in by other CRG drivers, like the Dutch Jeroen Bos who was fourth, Symen Wiggers who followed him in fifth and the Swede Andreas Johansson ending eighth. Wiggers was ninth in Race-2 leading team mate Mark Potman.

PAAVO TONTERI (CRG-PARILLA) TAKING OK TITLE

The OK title was already firmly in Paavo Tonteri’s hands on CRG-Parilla run by CRG TB Racing. Despite this, the Finn Tonteri did not miss the chance to fight for the victory in the first final, eventually settling for P4, followed at the flag by team mate Tim Troger, who has recently won the German ADAC title. Tonteri had to give up at Race-2’s turn one due to an incident instead. The other two German drivers of CRG TB Racing Team, Luca Lippkau and Nermin Colakovic came to the fore in the second final, taking respectively the fifth and sixth place.

DENNIS HAUGER (CRG-PARILLA) VICTORIOUS IN OK JUNIOR

The young Norwegian of CRG Holland Dennis Hauger on CRG-Parilla has been very strong in Kerpen, running a perfect weekend that earned him the OK Junior title. Hauger – who comes from 60 Mini and is at his first season in Junior – has been stunning, taking a deserved maiden title in this category showing a great growth throughout the season. Hauger got to Kerpen as classification leader after the victory and third place secured in Oschersleben, but the classification was still wide open ahead of the final round. Hauger ended Race-1 in second place, behind team mate Kas Hoverkort on CRG-Tm run by CRG Keijzer Racing Team, but he got full haul as Hoverkort was transparent to the classification. Hauger secured another second place in Race-2, a result that confirmed his classification lead. Haverkort was again on the podium in P3. Among the fastest on CRG, Patricija Stalidzane of RL-Competition was sixth in Race-1, while Luca Maisch (Junior ADAC Champion) of CRG TB Racing Team was ninth. Lorenzo Ferrari took a good 13th place, and Niels Troger the 14th. Troger ended Race-2 in P8, while Renzo Alibaks was 14th and Marius Zug 15th.
