The 16th edition of the Winter Cup presented a KZ2 grid that would make any motorsport class on the entire planet very envious. It’s very rare that you get such a mix of young talent and seasoned pros all in the same race. It’s what makes karting so very special and unique from any motorsport on earth!
Typically for winter, weather played a major part in proceedings. Tyre choice played a crucial role in the pre-final and that set the conditions for the final. Young Czech driver Patrick Hajak mastered the tricky conditions to come out on top, with Dreezen second and Ardigo third. That made it a TonyKart clean sweep for the podium positions. 2010 World Karting Champ Nyck de Vries showed speed throughout the weekend and finished a credible 15th in his debut in KZ2.
KF2 saw 17 year-old Teemu Suninen come out on top. His mastery of wet conditoins went un-matched. There was a welcome result for PF International which saw their driver Mark Litchfield finishing second. Alexandre Baron completed the podium.
Hot favourite for KF3 was the young Max Verstappen. Despite coming out on top on Saturday it was Energy’s Dennis Olsen from Norway who took the win. Sweden’s Robin Hansson finished third.
