The first round of the CIK-FIA World Championship of category KF is under way at the International Circuit of Brandon, England, and CRG left the mark since the beginning with a very quick Max Verstappen obtaining the pole in qualifying held on Friday.
The new colors shown by CRG in UK brought good luck with the new white-cream racing suits specifically designed for the World Championship and the new graphical layout of the chassis livery of the Italian outfit.
STUNNING VERSTAPPEN. The young Dutch set a really impressive time on an as always absolutely perfect CRG chasiss pushed by the TM engine unit prepared by GRF Engines belonging to the Briton Gordon Finlayson. Max Verstappen posted his fastest time very close to the wall of 54 seconds, in an impressive string of faster and faster laps that ended with the best chrono of 54”228, proceeding all his rivals led by Convers and Nielsen by nearly two tenths of a second.
The other CRG drivers will start a bit more from the back but will certainly be ready to counter-charge in qualifying heats on Saturday and in the finals on Sunday. Jordon Lennox-Lamb, on CRG-Bmb, set the ninth time of his group (12th overall), Felice Tiene on CRG-Parilla was tenth (15th overall), Niclas Nylund (CRG-Bmb) the 14th (21st in the general standings), Alex Palou (CRG-Parilla) the 16th (35th overall).
