The Leclerc By Lennox Racing Team returns from the first round of the Champions Of the Futu- re with another victory in their pocket, always in the OK category. The success, this time, is done by Jamie Day who dominates with great determination on a truly fierce line-up in a final without a breather. Beyond the victory the second in a row after Gray’s success in Sarno in the first round of the WSK Euro Series, the team led by Jordon Lennox-Lamb achieved an outstanding and high-level fantastic performance which clearly reflects the excellence of Charles Leclerc chassis, manufactured in Lissone (Italy) by Birel ART, and with the TM Racing engines, even on a demanding track during an event characterized by having higher temperatures.
Jamie Day’s Champions Of The Future began by setting the sixth fastest time in the timed trials and continued with a faultless race conducted in the Qualifying Heats. The “take home” at the end of the day on Saturday is one of the fastest laps, two wins, a second and fifth spot which provide him the second position in the rankings. Lastly, the final victory is preceded by the first position conquered in the Prefinals in the morning.
A streak of results certainly within the reach of Oliver Gray, although the Englishman is forced to implement an emergency maneuver to avoid being involved in a collision in the last heat, thus losing positions. In the Prefinal Gray manages to get into the top ten, but once in the final, he cannot avoid getting caught up in the battle for the spots immediately following the leading positions. The Engli- shman, therefore, does not have the opportunity to show his pace, not far from his teammate as his victory in the heats demonstrates.
In Zuera (Spain) too, our OKJ drivers, Rafael Modonese and Ivan Domingues continue to reap the benefits of the progress they have accomplished so far. Domingues gives an excellent performance in the Qualifying Heats, at the end of which he recovers 14 positions in the rankings, also thanks to two results in the top ten, the best of which is a seventh spot. Even Modonese manages to get close to the top-ten several times, yet a penalty obtained in the last heat forces him to take the Second Chance Heat where, unfortunately, he does not reach the finish line due to a contact with another driver. Do- mingues, on the other hand, continues his path lining-up at the start of the two decisive races and, in the end, the Portuguese completes and brilliant 10-position comeback in the Final. A performance to be praised even if the result is tight because it was influenced by the post-race penalty imposed after the Prefinal.
With the first round of the Champions Of The Future coming to an end, the Leclerc by Lennox Ra- cing Team will now take advantage of the experience gained to prepare for the first round of the FIA Karting European Championship OK and Junior, scheduled at the Circuito Internacional de Zuera in two weeks.
