Troubled final in Sarno for Alex Irlando


On occasion of the first round of the WSK Euro Series, Alex Irlando makes a huge step forward with his BirelART-TM.

Constantly on top from Friday, Alex Irlando couldn’t take home the big prize in Sarno because of a not perfect set-up with new tyres on Sunday afternoon.

The Apulian driver takes the 4th position overall in qualifying, less than 2 tenths of second slower than the poleman. Throughout heats Alex is consistent and he grabs two 4th place and a win that give him the 3rd position overall on Saturday evening.

The Prefinal on Sunday morning confirms the great pace of the BirelART-TM #112 that crosses the line on 2nd earning the 3rd spot on the final starting grid. The Final has a different plot: Alex doesn’t make a perfect start, but lap after lap the set-up chosen turned out to be not so good with a set of new tyres and Alex closes in 12th position.

 “Throughout the weekend the kart was great, but in the Final the we should have adopted a different configuration. Anyway I’m quite happy with this result, we’re improving race after race and that’s the important. We’ll arrive more than ready for the CIK-FIA events! Now I’ve to switch once again on the ‘OK-mode’ because next week I’ll race in OK in Angerville and that motivates me a lot!”

 Here are the results of the race.

Next week Alex will compete in Angerville (FR) on occasion of the FFSA French OK Championship to prepare the first round of the CIK-FIA OK Championship held in France.
