De Vries Wins At Genk WSK Round
A driver who wins on his 5th presence at a Super KF meeting, the elite category of international karting, is a rare enough event to make noteworthy. Nyck De Vries (Zanardi-Parilla) achieved this exploit after a race managed with a master's hand on the Genk circuit, in Belgium. As a result, the Dutch driver conquered the second place in the very hard-fought WSK Euro Series and he is now ready for fight for the title at the final meeting, to be held in Italy in June.
Every new race gives Nyck De Vries the opportunity to show how immensely talented he is with a wheel in his hands. However, many things happened east of Brussels, so much so that it became essential to stay perfectly focussed and to act with clear-sightedness to emerge from a pack gathering the best kart drivers in the world.
However, his performance turned out to be extremely satisfactory, as proven by one of the best laps he ever performed. Thanks to accurate information provided by the driver, technicians Tom Stevens and Dino Chiesa perfectly adjusted his Zanardi-Parilla no. 10. Revenge began. "In the pre-final, I had an excellent start and I was soon duelling against drivers such as Cooper, Camponeschi, Cesetti, Convers and World Champions Ardigo and Kozlinski. It was a close fight. I had to remain focussed all the time and exploit every overtaking opportunity, it was very exciting. After well managing the slippery track of the first days, I felt I had an advantage over them and I won this first round".
The final race had just that same intensity, with another victory waiting around the corner... and a nice explosion of joy! "I have won many races in KF3 over the last two years, including the European Championship and the WSK, but winning in Super KF is a completely different feeling. Everything is so professional, so difficult, that I am even happier for this success. A big thank you to the whole team, our efforts have been rewarded".
