The 2015 Sodi World Finals, where drivers qualify throughout the year at tracks using Sodi hire karts, was a big success at Racing Kart Cormeilles in France, a dedicated corporate kart centre with facilities to rival the best racing circuits.
The participants in the Junior Cup for ages 11 to 15 saw their numbers rise from 20 in 2014 to 36 this year. Germany’s Felix Hahn began with victories on the first day, but then his supremacy was challenged by Britain’s Matthew Luff who went on to win overall. In Seniors the Belgian Kevin Caprasse, 7th in 2014, achieved his overall victory by winning the first four races and then taking the title against the French driver Julien Azzopardi. The Endurance Cup was won by the Italian team Pastina Corse Veneto, led by Damiano Marchesan, just 15s ahead of the Belgians Modave Racing PPS after 648 laps and 777 km.
The entertainment was also a success, including the fireworks accompanying the Le Mans 24 hours type start of the 12 hour endurance race. Sodi gave their top drivers Anthony Abbasse and Arnaud Kozlinski the task of putting on a show using their powerful KZ karts. The public were entertained by their demonstrations which ended in smoke from the tyres overheated by slides, donuts and other stunts. The two champions also experienced the new two-seater 2Drive kart in unique conditions.
