In the last round of the WSK-branded competition, Leonardo was forced to retire after a contact in the early stages of the race.
The second race in a row on the Lonato track proved to be difficult to interpret for the whole KZ2 line-up. High temperatures and tussles for all the positions gave an idea of the level which will be back on track for the long-awaited FIA-branded competitions, starting from the European Championship which is just around the corner.
Leonardo Marseglia continued his work with the KR team, starting with a better qualifying than in the WSK Euro Series (on the previous weekend), improving his starting position for the heats. With three further comebacks in the direct confrontations, Marseglia then put the finishing touches to his weekend in Sunday’s engagements. If in the pre-final, Leo, had managed to climb to tenth place, unfortunately in the final category could not continue his climb. After the restart of the race following a red flag, Marseglia was forced to retire after the first two passes, caused by the breakage of the steering arm as a result of many contacts in the early stages of the race.
A result that obviously was not desired by the KR driver but, in any case, does not cancel the efforts made so far to get ready for the most important part of the season.
Leonardo: “Unfortunately the weekend has ended with a retirement, I am very sorry but together with the team we have our goal very clear. It will be a tough fight as always in this category but we won’t give up, I’m ready for the next race. I would like to thank KR and Iame, my mechanic and all my sponsors”.
