The Birel ART chassis with TM Racing engines have finally won the laurels they have deserved since the at the WSK Open Cup on the Lonato track. Winning an indisputable victory in KZ2 with Riccardo Longhi and completing this success by Marijn Kremers' 3rd place is an invaluable reward for Birel ART on the circuit where the last round of the European Championship will be disputed in a few weeks. The progress of the Lissone team was also confirmed with the success of Luigi Coluccio OK.
The BirelART North American team attacked rounds 3 & 4 of SKUSA SpringNationals with confidence this weekend, hosted at the famous PKRA circuit located in Phoenix, Arizona. Blistering hot temperatures forced drivers and teams alike to maintain composure and isolate engine temperatures to normal operating ranges. Despite PSL/BirelART having a strong track history of winning at the PKRA circuit, the team was faced with challenges in this very competitive series and overcame them with great success.
Despite winter conditions which were still harsh for the machines and men, the 23rd edition of the Winter Cup validated the positive dynamic that prevails this season within Birel ART Racing. Although failing to obtain all of the successes that were possible, the team has achieved many remarkable performances in several categories, starting with the top five for Pizzi in Junior.
Technically and organisationally, everything is in place for the great Italian manufacturer to return to a long tradition of victories on all terrains.
After setting the 9th time in Qualifying, Felice Tiene met many obstacles until his retirement in the Prefinal, caused by the breakdown of the water pump belt.
The Winter Cup is never an easy-to-manage event because of the large number of seasoned and enthusiastic drivers who participate and the specificity of the Lonato track.
Birel ART demonstrated remarkable competitiveness in the first race of the 2017 season on the Adria Karting Raceway.
