CRG FACTORY NEWS: CRG IMMEDIATELY IN POLE POSITION IN KZ1 WITH FABIAN FEDERER IN LA CONCA FOR THE FIRST ROUND OF THE WSK EURO SERIES
Saturday, March 2 2013
IN MURO LECCESE GREAT PERFORMANCE IN QUALIFYING FOR THE CRG DRIVER - POWERED BY THE NEW ENGINE MODENA -. MAX VERSTAPPEN AND JORRIT PEX SET THE THIRD AND FOURTH TIME, CONFIRMING THE ROLE OF PROTAGONIST OF GRG IN KZ1. ON SATURDAY THE HEATS.
On the international La Conca of Muro Leccese, the KZ1 category was characterized by CRG's performance during the first round of the WSK Euro Series: Fabian Federer achieved a resounding pole position, bringing CRG - in the most performing gearbox category - the performance of the CRG chassis powered by Modena Engines at its top.
IN KZ1 CRG LEADER IN QUALIFYING. Besides Federer, in KZ1 CRG saw three of its driver in the first four positions, with Max Verstappen on CRG-Tm third 75 milliseconds behind and Jorrit Pex, always on CRG-Tm, fourth at 104 milliseconds. In the top ten of the KZ1 also Jordon Lennox-Lamb, seventh at 0”191 on CRG-Maxter powered by the engine developed directly by the factory, and Jonathan Thonon, eighth at 0”215 on CRG Maxter powered by the engine developed by Savard.
So, great satisfaction for the driver from Sudtirol Fabian Federer, KZ2 European champion in 2011, powered by a Modena engine designed by the engineer from Bolzano Roland Holzner. The engine, at his third race of the year, immediately helped to achieve the overall best time.
“This pole position was really surprising for me too - said Federer with satifaction - but the Modena Engine was really performing already in the two previous races, the WSK Master Series and the Winter Cup. During these last few weeks it has undergone further developments and these are the results, really excellent. Of course, the CRG chassis was as perfect as usual."
About the other CRG drivers: in KZ1 Lorenzo Camplese placed 14th in qualifying preceding Andrea Dalè, while Davide Forè was a bit behind, 19th.
In KZ2, for the time being, the best CRG driver is Daniele Delli Compagni of the Galiffa team, sixth . In the other categories, the debut of the Spanish Alex Palou (CRG-Parilla) in KF was really positive: he managed to enter the Superpole and eventually placed overall 11th.
THE OTHER CATEGORIES. In the other categories, during the first heats of Friday afternoon, in KF the Canadian Zachary Claman DeMelo (CRG-Bmb) performed well and achieved an excellent 4th place in his race. In the other heat, Felice Tiene, who is developing the Parilla engine on his CRG chassis, placed sixth.
In KFJ, the best result for the CRG drivers was achieved by Devlin De Francesco, overall 11th only 7th milliseconds behind the leader.
