This weekend will see the fourth and final round of the WSK Super Master Series take place at the Sarno circuit in Italy. Coming off the back of his first win since joining the CRG Factory Team at the 28th Trofeo Andrea Margutti just two weeks ago Callum is flying with confidence and is hoping for a good result.
Callum’s season with CRG prior to the Margutti event had been mixed. He had shown great pace, but seemed to be struggling for luck and even pace at times. But Callum is no World Champion by chance and it was only a matter of time before things would come together.
Right on queue Callum won the famous Trofeo Andrea Margutti event beating the likes of Lorenzo Travisanutto, Tomy Joyner and Felice Tiene who have all been front runners in the WSK Super Master Series this season. It was a huge moment in Callum’s European Karting career and will have filled him with such huge confidence which should make him the one to watch this weekend.
However, the challenge this weekend will be far from easy, in fact it may the hardest Callum has ever faced with a bumper entry of 71 drivers set to attend the Napoli based circuit this weekend. All the big players this weekend including the likes of Travisanutto and Joyner along with many more!
The circuit itself is one Callum has never visited before which will put him in the back foot but he has proved in the past he can be a quick learner. As a circuit it is made up of a first sector which contains a long straight before getting into the more tight and twisty second and third sectors. It’s a great track for overtaking and mistakes can be heavily punished!
Ahead of the weekend Callum commented: “It was a very good victory for us last time out in South Garda and a real breakthrough after lots of hard work from the team! But I have to put that behind me for now and concentrate on this weekend. I will be treating it just like any other race this year. I am getting more confident with the kart and the team every session we go on track and I’m hoping to end our WSK season with a good result!”
Sitting 23rd in the championship, Callum will not have his eyes on points this weekend, instead he’ll be hoping to end the season in style to leave him in good stead heading into the more important CIK-FIA European Championship!
