Rosberg Racing Academy wins in Lonato!

The Rosberg Racing Academy just completed an amazing weekend in Lonato, for the first round of the WSK Open Cup! We finished on the top of the podium, as both Andrea Kimi Antonelli and Taylor Barnard won the race in OKJ and OK classes respectively!
This amazing performance comes as a confirmation of Barnrad’s speed, as he’s now competitive enough to fight for the win after a consistent progression during the whole season!
Antonelli finished the OKJ class in style with a magnificent move on the very last lap of the race! He will be racing in OK alongside Barnard and Han next year.
The Chinese driver was also fast and convincing this weekend more than ever; he’s been unlucky in some of the heats but proved to have the speed to compete for the top positions!

CIK FIA – Alaharma

Incredible performance from our OK driver Taylor Barnard! The strong British kid raced a fantastic weekend from qualifying and through the heats, and was able to jump on the podium alongside fellow KR driver Lorenzo Travisanutto! It’s been a crazy weekend in Finland with constantly changing weather conditions, but Taylor has always been competitive on his favorite track.
We’re also happy about the performance shown by Antonelli in OKJ; the strong Italian kid has been competitive in qualifying and during the heats, winning some of them. We probably lost something under heavy rain in the final, but still we’re happy to have him in the Top 5 of the World Championship in his first year in OKJ.

CIK FIA – Antonelli wins in Le Mans and Barnard takes podium!

Rosberg Racing Academy celebrated two podiums last weekend; Antonelli scored a fantastic win in OKJ after a very competitive weekend on his favorite track, and Barnard also made it onto the OK podium after recovering from the back of the grid!
Our team is also delighted to be on the Championship podium with both drivers; pretty good result for two rookies in their respective classes!

Under a very hot sun, our drivers have been pretty busy this weekend in Lonato and made it to achieve great results for our team!
Antonelli had a fantastic weekend in OKJ; after scoring pole position, he won heats and finished his final on the podium, in 3rd position. That was enough for him to take the championship lead in OKJ!
Another solid weekend for Barnard in OK, who finished 7th and confirms to be a protagonist into the top 10.

CIK FIA – European Championship, Round 3 Kristianstad 2019

Very good performances shown by our drivers in Sweden last week end, despite the unlucky turnaround for Antonelli; the Italian driver scored pole on Friday, was strong during the heats and also won the pre-final, but lost some pace in the final due to the lack of grip, finishing 5th.
In OK, Barnard kept a good pace throughout the whole week end, and gained positions in the championship, being now 4th in the rank; not bad for the young British driver, in his first ever European Competition.

CIK FIA – European Championship, Round 2 Genk 2019

The second round of this 2019 edition of the CIK FIA European Championship is now in the books. It’s been a super tough weekend for our drivers; the weather was evolving fast… too fast sometimes, like it happened for our OK driver Barnard, who found himself having to drive on slick tires over heavy rain.
Lots of misfortune also for Han (OK) and Antonelli (OKJ), although they showed their potential and had the speed to be in the top as they’re used to!

CIK FIA – European Championship, Round 1 Angerville 2019

Rosberg Racing Academy just completed the first round of this 2019 CIK FIA European Championship in Angerville, France.
We had good performance from Taylor Barnard in OK class, as he scored some points by finishing P4 in the final. He’s currently in the fight for the championship!
A bit of misfortune for Han and Antonelli kept them from getting more, but they had the speed to be in better positions. We’re looking forward to the next round in Genk, Belgium!

Antonelli wins the Second Round of the WSK Euro Series in Angerville

Another round of the WSK Euro Series in done, and our driver in OKJ, the Italian Andrea Kimi Antonelli, scored a well-deserved win!After struggling during last week’s Euro Champ, due to not optimal physical conditions, the WSK Super Master Series Champion got back to his usual pace, concluding this week end in first position!Our drivers in OK also showed serious commitment in all weather conditions. Barnard was very fast, being able to gain a front row start for the final; he eventually ended up losing positions in a furious battle, finishing P6, but his lap times were fast enough to put him on the podium with fellow KR drivers Travisanutto and Patterson.A bit of an unlucky week end for Han, who has showed good speed, but wasn’t lucky in qualy because of traffic. Having to start from the mid field he eventually found himself having to fight really hard to get through, getting a few penalties for the collapsed front spoiler. He finished his final 14th.

WSK – Euro Series, Round 1 Sarno 2019

The Karting circus is finally leaving the paddock of Sarno after two very intense racing week ends!This first round of the WSK Euro Series didn’t go quite as good as last week, but our drivers showed some really good performances as usual.Racing is though! Some of our drivers suffered issues during qualifying and had to start from the middle of the pack; that always raises the chances of getting involved into contacts and crashes.Other drivers were actually competitive in qualy, like Han Cenyu who qualified P9. He later had to face some aggressive racing, slipping down in the overall rank.Our OKJ WSK Master Series Champion, Andrea Kimi Antonelli, was able to recover and hold position in a difficult week end, finishing in the Top 10.
