International Round-Up 2014

WSK Super Master Series, Rounds 1 & 2

The first round of the WSK Super Master Series was at Sarno at the end of March with practice under warm and dry conditions but much of the racing was in the wet.

Daniel Ticktum claimed KFJ victory after fighting Leonardo Lorandi on a very wet track with it finally being decided when Lorandi overshot the track. Enaam Ahmed was third.

Karol Basz was unbeatable in KF where he finished 4s ahead of Callum Ilott who had a good start from the third row. World champion Tom Joyner had won the Pre-final but dropped to the back after early contact, although he recovered well to 13th.

There was a big field of KZ2s as their world championship will be at Sarno in September. Bas Lammers won in only his second race with Formula K, although helped by the wet conditions.

The following weekend was the 25th Margutti Trophy at Lonato. Marco Zanchetta dominated the event in KZ2 and finished the final in formation with Maranello team-mate Lorenzo Camplese.

Max Fewtrell took his second win of the season in KFJ, staying ahead at each stage of the event. Ross Martin, in only his second international race, came in 5th but Ticktum retired.

KFJ world champion Alessio Lorandi took the KF win ahead of Julien Fong from Irish squad Kartronix. There were no British drivers in the class but plenty of entries from British teams.

On 13th April it was back to the WSK Super Master Series, this time at Castelletto. Ardigo controlled the KZ2 final just ahead of Lammers. and took the lead of the championship. Top Brit was Ben Hanley in 5th.

Jehan Daruvala was unbeatable in the KF final, winning ahead of Gabriel Aubry. Karol Basz kept his championship lead with 3rd and Lando Norris had a welcome return to form with pole in qualifying although he was 9th in the final.

Venezuelan driver Mauricio Baiz won KFJ and 6th-placed Dan Ticktum was the top Brit.
