press release

Who: The IAME Parilla powered karts
What: The III round of the WSK Euro Series
Where: Zuera International Circuit– Zuera – SPAIN When: 15th-18th April, 2010

Incredible Nyck De Vries (Zanardi/Parilla): In qualifying 2nd, in the Superpole 3rd and in the heats he is 2nd overall. He finished in the same position both the pre-final and the final (both with the fastest lap). He is third in the Championship standings. Matteo Viganò, who is amongst the leaders for the entire weekend (5th in Superpole, 5th after the heats), led in the pre-final, but is forced to retire due to technical problem (he finishes 16th in the final). In the final Tereza Gromanova and Zdenek Groman (both driving Maranello/Parilla) finish 11th and 12th.

Jack Hawksworth (Maddox/Parilla) is in the limelight in KZ1, finishing in 5th place in both the pre-final and the final. Marco Zanchetta (DR/Parilla), in KZ2, after retiring in the pre-final, recovers to finish the final in 8th place.

It could have been Antonio Giovinazzi’s (TopKart/Parilla) weekend. He is 3rd in qualifying and finishes the heats in an overall 1st place. In the pre-final he finishes in 14th place following several contacts, while he fails to finish in the final. Adrian Del Rio (PCR/Parilla), did everything right up until the pre-final (12th). Simone Favaro, finishes 23rd in the final.

There are many Parillas at the front in qualifying: the IAME engines are healthy. Nicklas Nielsen (DR/Parilla) is one of the protagonists. He finishes 1st twice (in qualifying and in a heat) and he is 4th overall after the heats. In the pre-final he is 6th, but in the final, due to several contacts, he only finishes 22nd. Valentin Moineault (DR/Parilla) is in the limelight after recording the fastest time in one of the heats and above all, Jake Dennis (Top Kart/Parilla) who following his ups and downs in the heats (where he still “records” a best lap) makes a recovery in pre-final and final (where once again records the best lap), moving up from 17th to 4th place.


Mauro Pozzi, number one at MGM Racing
“Things went better than on other occasions. It is a shame we didn’t bring home any results, but we hope to be on the right road for further improvements”.

Andrea Bossaglia, IAME Technical Director:
“Undoubtably we got good performance this weekend, on a circuit that normally favours the characteristics of our engines. There were only a few technical problems, which were due to the severity of the track. We are paying particular attention to KF2, especially in view of the imminent Qualifications for the CIK-FIA Championship (there will also be KF3). Antonio Giovinazzi’s performance confirms that we are going in the right direction, but the objective to have the same performance for everybody. SKF was very encouraging and the solid performance in KZ1 was once more a nice surprise. Thanks to everyone!”.
