Paolo De Conto to strengthen the works team in 2015, but some more new-entries are also expected after Jordon Lennox-Lamb decided to follow other routes. Very good chances in Euro Rotax with the arrival of HRS and Martin Reuvers. Novelties also in the works team’s sporting management with the role took on by Glenn Keyaert, as Euan Jeffery moved to R&D. On the commercial side, an important agreement has been reached with K1 Speed for North America.

The balance of season 2014 has been once again positive for CRG that has displayed a great competitiveness in all the races, even though the results obtained have not been as important as in the recent few years. In 2014 CRG won the European KZ2 title with Andrea Dalè, on CRG-Maxter, which is an even more important result as it has been achieved by a private driver.

This important result was not followed by some more due to a series of unlucky events but, as stated by CRG President Giancarlo Tinini, “not all years are the same”. Strong performances have been put in by Jordon Lennox-Lamb who came second in the Euro Rotax and won Las Vegas’ S1 and the American Championship.

“This year we struggled a bit more – continued Giancarlo Tinini – and 2014 has certainly not been our best season yet, but we cannot say that it has been a disaster either. We showed a great competitiveness in a lot of occasions. For the first year, we have been competing in the Challenge Euro Rotax, where we managed to express an high level of performance laying the foundations for a good development in this category. Obviously, we aim to get a better season 2015 building on the experience gained in 2014.”
– Meanwhile, CRG welcomed the arrival of a very quick driver like Paolo De Conto, but also said goodbye to Jordon Lennox-Lamb who decided to look elsewhere at the beginning of 2015…

“Paolo is certainly one of the main interpreters of KZ in the recent years. In 2015 he will be among our ranks and I believe he will give his best to get the success he deserves. Lennox decided to go through a different path. He has received a very good offer, one to which it is difficult to say no. We are happy for him, and we are proud of having launched him among the top-drivers in the world as he has been shining with CRG since 2011. Together with Paolo De Conto, in KZ1 we will field Davide Forè who will partake to some important races. In KZ2, we will line Fabian Federer up, as well as Andrea Dalè as privateer. Most probably we are going to have some other interesting drivers we currently are talking to. Regarding KF, we confirmed Felice Tiene, who will be sided by Pedro Hiltbrand. Some other drivers will be present too, and probably some new entries. We reached an important agreement with HRS Racing Engines and Martin Reuvers to strengthen our team in the Rotax 2015 Euro Challenge and in the other important Rotax rounds.”
– There are some Important novelties regarding the sporting direction of the team…

“Euan Jeffery, who held the role of sporting director greatly in these years, moved to that of managing Commercial R&D in 2015. This strategic role for the development of our company will have the goal of supporting and improving our sales network as well as of identifying some further partners and markets to operate on. Glenn Keyaert, who has been with us for some years now and has a great knowledge of racing and logistics, will take on the role of sporting director instead.”
– What are the novelties on CRG products for 2015?

“We will employ some new materials, but these are not big news as we already developed our products during season 2014. We believe we have some great material and are certain that we will do good things. Regarding engines, we will use Parilla in KF and Maxter in KZ.”

– In terms of tires, CIK-FIA announced the 2015 providers. What is your opinion on this?

“I never had any prejudice on companies, but I believe that it would have been possibly better if CIK-FIA had involved chassis constructors in this choice. I think we could have run some tests on track to evaluate which tire type performed better in one category or in the other, which would have given us a better choice and a more satisfactorily one for drivers. It is true that tires are the same for everyone in each category, but should drivers not be happy with them we would witness a continuous hemorrhage of drivers towards more satisfactory championships.”

– How about the new KF engines?

“I keep hearing discordant opinions, and unfortunately most of them are negative. As far as we are concerned, we will be less interested to KF and will focus mainly on KZ. In KF categories, the number of drivers has drastically decreased because the choice was taken not to simplify a motorization that is too complicated. Rule makers obviously do not have an adequate knowledge of this problem. Figures of WSK or CIK-FIA – that gather drivers from all over the world – must not be confused with those of national championships, that are true indicators of the success of a category. KF categories virtually do not exist anymore in these championships. Categories like Rotax or other single-branded championships get the most out of this situation as they keep attracting an higher number of drivers.”

– National championships are suffering more and more of this KF motorization crisis. In your opinion, what remedy could be used to invert this trend?

“The championships that work are those that do things by themselves, that is, evaluate every time if it is worthy going down certain paths. In the world there are good examples of successful Championships that managed to meet the needs and expectations of staff and drivers. Even tires choice can have a huge impact on the success of a championship. Besides brands, the right compound of a tire can attract more drivers and give more interest to a championship.”

– Business-wise, how has been CRG’s 2014?

“Our trend in the last three years has been constant and, in the current economic situation, having the same numbers is already a great success. France and Germany are again the best markets in Europe. We also did a great job in China and North America, were we made an agreement with K1 Speed for 2015. This will allow us to develop a new, well-structured and capillary distribution network to provide all CRG devoted clients with high level service and great race support.”

CRG DOMINATES WSK EURO SERIES ‘KZ1, VERSTAPPEN GETS THE TITLE, FORE’ THE LAST FINAL IN GENK

WSK EURO SERIES GENK - KZ1 DAVIDE FORE' VERSTAPPEN THONON CRG 2

Genk (Belgium). CRG showed on track an absolute dominion in Genk’s last round of the WSK Euro Series in KZ1, which culminated in Final 1 victory – worth also the well deserved title for Max Verstappen – and in the solid one-two-three obtained in the second Final on Sunday with Davide Forè satisfactorily back on the top spot of the podium together with Jonathan Thonon and with the great protagonist Max Verstappen. CRG drivers dominated the Belgian weekend highlighting once again the quality and competitiveness of the chassis produced by the Italian outfit, awarding the whole team with increased motivation for the remaining of the season that is about to get in the “red-hot” phase of the CIK-FIA championships.

FORE’ ON TOP IN KZ1. After the spotless victory obtained by Max Verstappen (CRG-Tm) in Genk’s first KZ1 Final on Saturday, which crowned him WSK Euro Series 2013 Champion, on Sunday honours were all for Davide Forè, who was racing with CRG colors for the Polish team DTK. The Italian driver on CRG-Tm prepared by Dal Dosso, started from the front row and cruised to the victory since the beginning as his lead was never questioned after the initial laps of a race that saw again Davide Forè under the spotlight and more competitive than ever. CRG’s dominion was completed by Jonathan Thonon, on CRG-Maxter, who obtained a very good second place while also setting the fastest lap of the race on a circuit where he was crowned world champion for the fourth time in 2011. The Belgian driver managed to get the third place of the final standings, a result awarding his competitiveness and strong determination.
INCREDIBLE VERSTAPPEN. Max Verstappen deserves a special reference as he won the championship thanks to Saturday’s Final win but then suffered an engine failure in the first heat on Sunday and therefore was forced to recover ground to the rivals in the second racing day. The exceptional shape of the young Dutch driver was confirmed in Sunday’s Final when he started from the 14th (!) place of the grid and later on recovered all the positions and joined the two colors companions on top of the race. Unfortunately in one race phase Verstappen was bumped by a rival that partially bent his rear bump. Quite incredibly he tried to fix the problem while still in the race and managed to get rid of the piece of plastic touching is rear wheel.

Race direction waved the technical flag at Verstappen to call him back to the pits but withdrew it a lap later as the situation seem to be back to normal. After the truly deserved podium, following some complaints filed by the fourth classified (what one wouldn’t do for a trophy…), Verstappen has been excluded by the classification as his rear bumper at the end of the race did not comply with the original dimensions. Classification wise this was not a problem though, as the championship was already secured and Verstappen certainly put in an historic race no matter what. PEX’S RECOVER. Good indications came also from the other CRG drivers racing in KZ1. Jorrit Pex, on track with team CRG Holland, produced a good recover from the back of the grid to the sixth final place. Pex ended fifth in the championship. Jordon Lennox-Lamb (CRG-Parilla), put in a good performance too as he crossed the finish line in seventh in Final-2 after a series of battles with his rivals. Fabian Federer (CRG-Modena) had some setup headaches and ended race-2 in 17th place instead. Five CRG drivers ended the championship within the top ten: 1. Verstappen, 3. Thonon, 5. Pex, 9. Forè, 10. Lennox.
TROUBLED WEEKEND FOR TIENE. Quite tough weekend for CRG drivers racing in KF, with Felice Tiene (CRG-Parilla) suffering several engine problems after an incident in one of Saturday’s heats that fortunately did not leave physical consequences on the driver. Tiene kept on racing in the final phase but in the Pre-Final and in the Final he was unfortunately forced to an early retirement. That was a rial pity as he could have aimed to the top spots in the classification instead of finishing sixth. Alex Palou (CRG-Parilla) was penalized by 10 seconds in the Pre-Final. In the Final the Spanish driver recovered all the way to the 14th place showing once again a good adaptation to the higher category.
Good performance also for the other Spanish driver, Pedro Hiltbrand Aguilar, on LH-Tm belonging to team LH Racing, who obtained a very good second place in the Pre-Final. A chassis setup modification in the Final turned out to be wrong and he ended the race in seventh place after an early lead in the initial stages.
DIONISIOS LOOKING AT THE EUROPEN CHAMPIONSHIP. The first weekend with CRG in KF Junior for the strong Romanian driver Marcu Dionisios (CRG-Parilla) has been mean with satisfaction especially due to the fact that an electrical problem did not give him the chance to take part in qualifying. Dionisios’ weekend was very complicated as he had to start from the back of the grid and ended in the Pre-Final. Dionisios will certainly have the chance to counter-charge in the next round of the European KF and KFJ Championships, with the first race scheduled in Alcaniz next June the 16th. The titles of the other categories went to Riccardo Negro (DR-Tm) in KZ2.

KZ1 is MSA British Championship Class

The MSA have confirmed that this year’s MSA British Championship class will be KZ1 run under the Super One Championship. KF’s complete and utter failure to make the British Championship an attractive proposition has forced the MSA to reconsider the championship class. The recent KZ1 edition to Super One presented the only viable option for the MSA.

ohn Hoyle, Super One Series promoter, said: “After we discovered there were insufficient entries in the KF2 class we were forced to consider alternatives and I am delighted to say that the MSA has agreed to it being the KZ1 class. This should be a huge boost for gearbox karting in the UK following the great popularity this purist class has had on the continent, and we invite anyone interested to register without delay.”

Colin Hilton, MSA Chief Executive and Kart Committee Chairman, added: “The MSA is delighted that the British Short Circuit Kart Championship title will now be awarded to the KZ1 class this year. These are difficult times for KF2 but in KZ1 we have a competitive and well-supported category that is worthy of the UK’s premier karting title.”

The KZ1 MSA British Championship will take place over three rounds

18 & 19 May 2013 – Rowrah
22 & 23 June 2013 – Glan Y Gors
12 & 13 October 2013 – Shenington

Most importantly the class will use yellow number plates with black numbers.
