PODIUMS THROUGHOUT EUROPE FOR ENERGY
In addition to recent brilliant performances during the world event at Sarno, and the WSK Final Cup in Rovigo, Adria, the Energy brand has been prominent everywhere in Europe: Spanish Champions with David Vidales, 3rd place in the 2014 Italian Championship with Francesco Celenta, a podium during the last round of the German Championship at Genk with Juan Correa and a top three in the French Endurance Championship with the GTL Competition team, among others. With a few days to go until the Supernationals in Las Vegas, Energy Corse can already claim a positive balance from the last season...
Top 5 for Celenta at Sarno
The reigning champions with Dorian Boccolacci, the Energy Corse team arrived at Sarno for the KZ2 International Super Cup with very competitive equipment. Held up in Lithuania after a victory at Wackersdorf and 3rd place in the European Championship, Simas Juodvirsis unfortunately had to forfeit the event. Ranked 3rd in the Italian Championship in 2014, Francesco Celenta (ASD LG Motorsport) was responsible for representing the Italian brand worthily. His fastest lap in the final showed that he would have had a place on the podium, but the problems he encountered in the heats relegated him to 30th position on Saturday night. He gained 12 places in the prefinal and then completed a remarkable rise of 13 places to take fifth in the final. The Australian Jason Faint was also driving an Energy-TM in Italy.
Correa succeeds at Adria
Ranked 4th overall with four podiums including a win, Juan Correa was one of the major players in the German Championship in 2014, and also in the recent WSK Final Cup that concluded the European season on the international circuit Rovigo-Adria. Third after qualifying, Correa retained his position after the heats, with two fourth places and a win. Despite a difficult prefinal, the driver racing in the colours of the Lotus F1 Junior Team gained five places and finished fifth at the chequered flag. A few days earlier, Correa was on the second step of the podium in the Race of Stars in Australia!
With regards to the other Energy chassis entered at Adria, Alessio Guazzaroni took 13th in the difficult category of KF and most especially there was 4th in Mini 60 for the young David Vidales, who was recently crowned Spanish Champion on the Energy Cadet chassis. Also in this Championship were Javier Belman, 5th in Alevin, and Javier Cobian 4th in KZ2.
While the new Energy chassis for 2015 is pending homologation by the CIK-FIA, preparation for next season has already begun for the team managed by Mick Panigada. Whatever the category, Energy Corse is still a good choice in 2015.
