After the spring break, the MOTAM karting drivers competed in Cremona
After a one-month break, Martin Molnár and Tamás Gender Junior competed again in Cremona, Italy, at this year’s fourth round of the WSK Super Master Series.
After the European Championship round in Valencia, Martin Molnár competed again in Cremona, Italy, on a track where he had never competed before. Despite this, Martin showed good pace and started the weekend with two top 10 finishes on Friday: 9th in the first heat and 8th in the second. On Saturday, he kept up his good form and was not disturbed by the changing weather. In the third heat he finished in the 10th position, and in the fourth he was in the top three for a while, then after a small falter he finished in fourth place. In Sunday’s Prefinal he managed to keep up his good run with a big catch-up, but in the Final he didn’t have the pace to fight for a top ten finish for the first time all weekend. Martin finished in the 23rd place out of 93 competitors in the four-round WSK Super Master Series 2023.
Tamás Junior started the weekend in the OKJ category with 81 competitors. After finishing 24th in his group in qualifying, he finished the first two heats on Friday in the 27th and 21st positions, and was looking forward to the next round.
