Nielsen leads OK at the Winter Cup after the heats
Of the 32 drivers racing in the Winter Cup in OK, the Vortex drivers are ahead, whether from the Tonykart factory, RFM or Ward Racing. Nicklas Nielsen has two wins and the other went to Lorenzo Travisanutto.
Nicklas Nielsen (Tony Kart / Vortex) took the lead ahead of Logan Sargeant (FA Kart / Vortex), with Lorenzo Travisanutto (Tony Kart / Vortex) ensuring 3rd position ahead of the poleman Jean-Baptiste Simmenauer (Tony Kart / Vortex) who was still very fast as he held the fastest time until the last lap when Ben Hanley (Croc Promotions / TM) dethroned him and took 5th position.
A Vortex trio has monopolised the top three in the OK heats at Lonato with Nielsen the leader thanks to his two victories ahead of Ward Racing’s Travisanutto, once victorious, and the RFM driver Sargeant. Pedro Hiltbrand (CRG / Parilla) is in 4th position ahead of Hanley who has extracted the best from his equipment. Upset in the second heat, Simmenauer has still managed to stay in the top 10 in 9th position. In 11th position after a retirement in the first heat, Karol Basz (Kosmic / Vortex) remains a competitor to watch.
