The season is now in full swing. The Champions of the Future Euro Series comes two weeks before the FIA Karting European Championship – OK and OK-Junior. With the same tracks, similar organisation, identical tyres, and a similar field, everything is in place for the RGMMC series to prepare for the upcoming FIA Karting competition in the best possible conditions, while offering its own international championship of great value.

This weekend, the second round of the Euro Series took place in Spain on the Zuera circuit, to which the teams travelled directly from Portimao. With 136 entries from 42 countries, the standard of competition was high and the races were spectacular in good weather.

In OK, the progress of KR Motorsport was obvious with the victory for Kean Nakamura-Berta and confirmed by 5th place for Alex Powell. With Enzo Deligny 2nd for Parolin Motorsport and Ean Eyckmans 3rd for EGP Racing Team, the rookies took the lead. The OTK Kart Group’s Vortex are still the majority of the top 10, but the IAMEs are making a comeback, while the TM Racing of Parolin and Birel ART are well represented.

In the OK-Junior class, Dmitry Matveev did a great job in the Final with the Koski Motorsport team, as did Nathan Tye for Sodikart and Anatholy Khavalkin with Parolin Motorsport. There were five chassis brands and three engine manufacturers in the top 10.

France has the wind in its sails with several very successful drivers and the rise of the official Sodikart team in OK-Junior. The British driver Nathan Tye (Sodi/TM) is constantly at the front and leads the provisional ranking. This year, the French team is reaping the rewards of its development work in the category, initiated by Jean-Philippe Guignet through Trèfle Racing and continued in collaboration with Mansel Smith, the team manager of the Sodi Racing Team. It attracts several foreign drivers such as the Hungarian Adam Hideg, who took a top 10 as soon as he joined the team and has become a major player in OK-Junior, in addition to the usual level of performance in KZ.

Jules Caranta (Energy/TM) has progressed enormously since joining the Energy Corse team. At the forefront of OK-Junior since Portimao, the young Frenchman must now solidify his rapid rise in the Final. Enzo Deligny is a sure thing in OK in his first season and has a great card to play with Parolin Motorsport.
