CVPG takes sixth place in Mariembourg
Full fields at the start of the Belgian Championship
More than 230 drivers competed in the opening of the Belgian IAME Series in Mariembourg. In alternating weather conditions, the drivers of the CV Performance Group showed a strong performance and got in on the top field.
Traditionally, the start of the Belgian IAME Series always ensures top-class fields of participants. Last weekend, starters from all over the world competed at the international racetrack in Mariembourg. Among them were five representatives from the CV Performance Group.
In the juniors, rookie Jens Treuer showed his experience from his starts in the WSK-Series and was part of the front field of the X30 juniors from the beginning on. He finished his heats twice in the top ten and finished 18th in the 59-man field. With that he moved into the A-finals and delivered great duels on the wet track. In the end, the driver from the Netherlands saw the checkered flag in 22nd place.
Four fosterlings faced the 79 IAME seniors. Britain's Morgan Porter delivered a top performance from the first minute on. He already underlined the performance of the CV Performance Group racing material being placed twelfth in qualifying. In the heats, he proved his performance and defended 12th place. He stepped up his game a notch further and only missed the top five in sixth place.
O'Neill Muth also made it to the A-finals. The driver from Belgium won the ADAC Kart Masters together with the CVPG 2019 and made his comeback in the Kart Republic team in Mariembourg. Through qualifying and the preliminary rounds, he improved his rhythm and finished the race weekend placed 18th in the final.
The two German representatives Philipp Gogollok and Ferdinand Winter gained important international racing experience. After Gogollok was placed 43rd in qualifying which made him the faster one in the duo, he did not catch perfect preliminaries and was only placed 65th in the intermediate rankings. It was the other way around for Winter: He fought his way to 41st place in the heats and finished two runs in the top ten. In doing so, he missed the A-final only by a hair's breadth. In the B-final, however, he was driving in the front of the pack and finished in sixth place. His teammate caught a spoiler penalty and was ranked 25th.
After this good performance in the high-calibre field of participants, team leader Christian Voß was in high spirits: "The field was on a level fitting to IAME Euro Series. Added to this were the partly severe weather conditions. Our drivers have mastered the challenges very well and underlined the possibilities of our material. That is what we are building on."
The team from Niederzissen will continue in two weeks. Then the IAME Euro Series kicks off in Mariembourg and at the same time the WSK Super Masters Series stopped for the third round in Sarno.
