The second round of the European KZ2 and KZ Championship lost 20 drivers from the opening round at Sarno, which already didn’t have an particularly large number of entries. The gearbox categories have been the ones to object most strongly to the new bumper system, which returned in a revised form at this race.
In KZ there were 22 drivers instead of the 26 at Sarno: Jérémy Iglesias was missing due to a change of chassis supplier that wasn’t yet effective and Kristijan Habulin was at home due to impending fatherhood.
In KZ2 there were 44 instead of the 60 at Sarno. As in KZ with Iglesias, Marco Zanche?a, Nicolas Gonzales and Paul Fontaine couldn’t race at Zuera due to lack of equipment. There were five wild cards, without whom the figures would be even worse.
With 50 of the 51 drivers entered present, the one-make Academy Trophy was the biggest category of the Spanish event and saw promising results from the UK selections Alfie Brown and Callum Bradshaw.
The schedules were adapted to the situation and qualifying was on Saturday morning and all of the heats on Saturday a?ernoon.
