CKN Euro Report: Another Podium for Antonio Serravalle
Closing out the European season in style, the popular WSK program held their WSK Finals Cup at the brand new Adria Karting Centre in Italy this past weekend.
Once again the top teams and drivers in the KF, KZ, KFJ and MINI categories were in attendance all hoping to close out their seasons with a victory. In attendance were a pair of Canadian drivers as Antonio Serravalle and Kami Moreira-Laliberte were on track while Devlin Defrancesco was not in attendance while recovering from season ending hand surgery.
Serravalle was once again very impressive over the weekend in the MINI category on the impressive Adria circuit. Qualifying second in his group, Serravalle earned a front row starting spot for his heat races, where he would earn a second and a tenth.
Battling back through the PreFinal, Serravalle drove up to third and allowed himself a shot at victory in the Final. An exciting race that saw more than a half-dozen karts racing for the lead Serravalle crossed the finish-line only two-tenths of a second behind the winner, settling for second place and a trip the WSK podium.
For Laliberte, it was another disappointing event where his pace just wasn’t shown in the results. Having to recover in all three of his heat races, he ranked 31st overall and needed to finish within the top-17 of the PreFinal to advance to the Final. Coming one position short, Laliberte was sent home early from the KFJ division.
With the European season now coming to a close, Serravalle will return to North America for the SKUSA SuperNationals to close out his year.
