T he changing weather conditions at the third round of the Champions of the Future Euro Series in Kristianstad enabled the Birel ART Racing team to gather a large amount of data in OK and OK-Junior. Drivers and technicians had to adapt constantly to ensure their competitiveness, which was certainly good training for the third round of the FIA European Karting Championship which will take place in Sweden in a fortnight.
Gunskirchen, Austria/Val d’Argenton May 25, 2022 – The Rotax MAX Challenge Euro Trophy on the last weekend in May is looking forward to a series highlight. The International championship of the Austrian engine manufacturer BRP-Rotax welcomes a new track on the calendar from May 27th to 29th. For the first time, an event will take place on the demanding circuit in Val d’Argenton, France – bringing a new challenge for all the drivers and teams participating.
The third round of the Champions of the Future Euro Series was not a smooth ride for the drivers and teams, who had to deal with particularly changeable weather conditions for three days. The Kristianstad circuit was sometimes dry, sometimes slightly damp and sometimes very wet. But each time, Nathan Tye and the Sodi Racing Team were able to adapt perfectly, to triumph in the OK-Junior Final. Mathematically, the young Briton has already secured the title in this prestigious series with one race to go!
With this victory, achieved thanks to great technical and sporting skill, Émilien Denner and the Sodi Racing Team could not have started their FIA Karting European campaign in the KZ category any better. The French driver, who took pole position in Timed Practice, scored significant points by leading the standings after the heats and the Super Heat, and then by winning the Final with a lead of more than three seconds. His fastest lap in the race demonstrates the competitiveness of the French brand’s equipment.
With each new CIK-FIA homologation, the Birel ART brand uses all the expertise of its factory and the immense experience of its Racing Team to develop extremely high quality chassis, capable of winning in all categories, whatever the type of tyres. This was again the case in Genk, at the first round of the European KZ and KZ2 Championships. This time, the honours went to the Birel ART-TM Racing karts in the colours of the Charles Leclerc by Lennox Racing team. Tom Leuillet dominated the KZ2 Final, while Matteo Vigano crossed the finish line in 3rd place in KZ. Pedro Hiltbrand kept all his chances in the Championship by entering the top five.
