Top 10 placement for Lennox Racing Team in the last round of CIK-FIA OK/OKJ European Championship

Another exciting European championship has ended: the renewed circuit of Cremona has been the theatre of incredible final races, full of emotions and surprises since the beginning of the weekend, and its 16 corners confirmed its undeniable selectivity at such a high level. Our team was represented in the OK category by Ean Eyckmans and Petr Ageev and in the OK Junior category by Noah Wolfe, Matias Orjuela, and Louis Castellini.

Things turned out to be quite satisfying since from free practice and our drivers confirmed a remarkable speed between Friday and Saturday. Eyckmans started his weekend in an astonishing way with a 6th place overall in his qualifying session and kept pushing hard also in the heats with some dominant performances that afforded him a P6 which represents one of the best results for our team in this long season.

In OK Junior Orjuela also put together some very good laps and ended his qualifying session with a P4 in his group (P11 overall) before remaining consistently in the top 10 in most of the heats in which was involved. Also, Wolfe’s pace was absolutely on point: Noah has been extremely concrete in his approach, remaining focused even in the toughest moments and gaining lots of top-10 placements. The positive job also from Castellini and Ageev (one top 10 finish) in both categories: despite some more difficulties in finding the right setup and feeling with the kart, both our drivers constantly improved their level of performance giving their best in every situation.

On Sunday, unfortunately, some tricky situations cost us a better result overall despite having three drivers in two category finals: in OK Eyckmans ended his weekend with a strong top-10 finish after a lot of great results and speed and, most of all, a very intelligent final. A very hard day in the office, indeed, for our OKJ drivers: Wolfe made his way into the top 20, while Orjuela had a very unfortunate penalty that pushed him down the order. Other good improvements for Castellini and Ageev as well throughout the weekend, even if they didn’t qualify for the final.

Jordon Lennox-Lamb, Team Manager: “It’s a shame that once again our drivers collected less than their performance had suggested this weekend, we’ve been a bit unlucky in the last weeks. But I’m also very happy about our workflow as a team and I see more and more improvements race after race, which is always our main goal. We have just to keep pushing with this positive mentality”.
