On the occasion of the last round of the WSK Super Master Series, Marco Ardigò honoured the Racing Team’s colours, winning the 2018 title of KZ2 class.

The conclusive act of the WSK Super Master Series gave great emotions to the Tony Kart Racing Team, which on the International Napoli circuit of Sarno, was able to repeat World Championship’s title in OK won in 2017 by the French Clément Novalak. This year, however, the success came in the KZ2 master class with Marco Ardigò, able to climb the top step of the podium thanks to the excellent performance of his Tony Kart 401S Racer powered by Vortex.

After a cautious start that has granted him the third place overall at the end of the qualifying heats, Marco has achieved a second place in the prefinal paving him the way to the absolute success in the Final. In the decisive race, he became the author of an excellent start, followed by an unsustainable rhythm for his rivals, which took him to the finishing line in the first position. Thanks to this result, the driver from Brescia has won the Titleof the WSK Super Master Series 2018, the right reward after the hard recovery work made after the last year accident.

His teammates also brought home good results, particularly Matteo Viganòand Simo Puhakka: the first stood out above all for the pole position gained in the qualifying, achieved with 56'273, followed by three consecutive victories in the heats and a fifth place in the prefinal and in the final. The second one began with a second place in the first qualifying heat, followed by placings in the top 10 which took him, finally, to the sixth absolute position in the Final. Less lucky, however, the weekend of Alessio Piccini, who finished the Final in 17thplace.

The Tony Kart Racing Team’s colours also shone in OKclass, where David Vidalesand Noah Milellreached the second step of the podium in both the prefinals. A result that allowed them to gain an important advantage on the starting grid of the Final, in which they gained a second and a third place, respectively.

Unlucky, however, the weekend of our drivers in the OKJcategory: after a seventh place at the end of the qualifying heats and a promising fourth position in A prefinal, Sebastian Montoyawas ready to run at his best for the decisive race. A collision immediately after the start, however, vanished his ambition to run for the podium. Laurens Van Hoepenwas also in trouble, he actually failed to repeat the result he got seven days before when he was able to reach the Top 10 in the Final.

Our drivers in the 60 Mini category, namely Rashid Al Dhaheri, Yuanpu Cui, Jimmy Heliasand Igor Cepil, have finally been able to enhance their experience at the wheel of their Tony Kart Neos powered by the Vortex Mini MR3 engine, in view of the next competitive effort.
