Multiple victories for CV Performance Group at Ampfing
Successful with the Bambini, OK Junior and X30 seniors
13 fosterlings of the CV Performance Group took aim at the third race of the ADAC Kart Masters in Ampfing, Bavaria, last weekend. The large number of drivers faced the challenges in four categories and took on favorite roles. In the end, three races and several placings in the cup ranks were accounted for by the team headed by Christian Voss.
The CV Performance Group presented itself last weekend at the Schweppermannring in Ampfing, Bavaria, with a heavily staffed team tent. At the second to last race of the season of the national championship of the ADAC, a total of 135 drivers gave full throttle. Partly alternating weather conditions made the events on the 1,063 meter long track, especially on Saturday, a tire poker and put drivers and mechanics to hard tests.
Jens Treuer was at the front of the Mini from the beginning on. After victories in the preliminary rounds, the youngster also won the first race on Sunday. In the second round Jens got into a collision in the fight for victory in the last lap and rolled out on the start and home straight. Team newcomer Niklas Cassarino asserted himself with flying colors in his first mini-race under the application of CVPG and finished in positions seven and nine. The driver from Mechtersheim crossed the finish line in front of respectively behind his team-mate Moritz Weber, who collected championship points in place eight and six.
Luke Kornder unfortunately experienced a Sunday to forget after a good Saturday with position five in qualifying. After a failure in the first race the young driver was placed 17th in the final, not meeting his expectations.
In the OK juniors Herolind Nuredini was unbeaten after the heats. Also, in the first race the driver from Oststeinbeker lived up to his name and drove to victory. Only in the second race Herolind had to give in to the pressure of his chasers. Nevertheless, the North German driver ranked himself as a good fourth in the junior leadership group and is still within striking distance in the championship. Torben Gröhndal provided a CVPG double lead being placed second after the first run. However, a subsequent time penalty threw the KR Kart driver back to position six. From there, Torben skillfully fought his way to third place in the final.
Matias Salonen showed a good upward trend at his Ampfing premiere. At the beginning of the event still outside the top ten being placed 13th, the Finnish driver relented in the races and asserted himself in the end being placed seventh each time within reach of the cup ranks. Arthur Tohum, on the other hand, was less fortunate and missed the hopes of a score for the championship with two 16th places.
Louis Kulke made a great comeback at the X30 Seniors. After a retained race weekend as part of the ADAC Kart Masters in Mülsen, the driver from Bad Salzuflen showed himself again in his element in Ampfing. With second and first place in the races, Louis substantiated his status as a leading candidate and consolidated the championship lead. Maximilian Dappert led the internal ranking behind that in positions six and three and recorded his best performance of the season to date.
Ferdinand Winter also mixed confidently in the hard-fought field of the X30 seniors and only narrowly scraped past a trophy being placed sixth in the final. Florian Rissler was still at the end of the field after qualifying. In the following races, however, the youngster passed his opponents with clever maneuvers and ultimately finished 13th in the final. Philipp Gogollok collected his first championship points being placed 13th in the first race, but fell behind in the second race and after a time penalty he could not get beyond 24th place.
"This weekend we had our hands full. Additionally, the weather kept us on our toes and presented us with difficult decisions. In the end, we worked in the right direction as a team. Two weeks before the ADAC Kart Masters final in Wackersdorf, we have the chance to win the title in three categories with Jens, Herolind and Louis," team leader Christian Voß looked forward to the final event on October 24th and 25th as well as the associated ambitions of the CV Performance Group.
