A well deserved satisfaction for Lennox Racing Team in third round of WSK Super Masters Series

After weeks of total commitment by drivers and the whole team, Lennox Racing reaped the benefits of hard work with a great result. In Sarno, the team was represented in KZ2 by Matteo Viganò, Ivan Ekelchik, and Maxim Rehm, and in OK-Junior by Noah Wolfe and Louis Castellini.

In Naples, Viganò has been simply sensational. Matteo started with a promising P5 in qualifying practice (P10 overall) showing a great pace since the beginning of the weekend despite tricky weather conditions. The Italian driver confirmed all the positive sensations also in the heats with three 3rd places out of four runs, fighting hard and managing to always keep up with the best on track.

On Sunday Viganò proved to be extremely quick since the Prefinal, catching P2 after recovering three positions and approaching in the best possible way at the spectacular Final, in which the Italian driver simply switched into beast mode and after an exalting comeback of six spots crossed the line in P2, missing victory for less than half a second. A stunning performance by Matteo, which has made great strides from all points of view in recent weeks.

The positive weekend also for Rehm, at his first race with the team, and Ekelchik. Maxim has been extremely fast in practice showing an immediate feeling with the track and setting the 6th fastest lap, but has been a bit unfortunate in the heats even due to his lack of experience.

The German driver concluded the final race in P30 even because of a bumper penalty, but showed up really interesting things despite his final placement: for him, Sarno has been just a starting point. On the other hand, Ivan continues to approach all the races with remarkable consistency, especially during the heats: final P24 for the Russian driver, who maintained a great pace in all the most important phases of the weekend.

In OK Junior Wolfe has sent out important signals again. After some difficulties during practice in managing the track conditions (P16 overall), Noah constantly raised his level in the heats, concluding with two top 10 placements.

Great job also in the Prefinal for the English driver, who unfortunately has been involved in some strange situations during the Final which didn’t afford him to stay with the best drivers on track and fighting for the podium: Wolfe crossed the line in P13 with some regrets, but also a lot more conviction in his own skills.

On the other hand, Castelllini still seems to need time to better adapt to the new reality. Louis is continuing on his growth path without any pressure: Louis had some difficulties in qualifying (P51) and finished the heats in P53, but he was able to redeem himself with an exalting comeback of nine positions in his Prefinal.

Jordon Lennox-Lamb, Team Manager: “I always knew that a weekend like this would come sooner or later: Matteo has been simply sensational, and his performance has confirmed that we are on the right path. His podium is a reward for the job of the team, including our other drivers that always push themselves to the limit to do their best. I’m sure that very soon we’ll be able to remain constantly at this level of performance”.
