After a disappointing third round of the WSK Super Master Series, which often saw Callum being the victim of other driver’s mistakes, he will be looking to bounce back as he heads to Sarno this weekend for the rescheduled second round. After snow forced the organisers to cancel the race at Lonato, the switch to move the race to Sarno gives Callum a chance to further prepare for the upcoming CIK-FIA European Championships.
The Italian circuit, based at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, doesn’t hold the happiest of memories for Callum. Last year the Super Master Series season finale saw Callum’s weekend end early, but the heats did provide some positives with strong top ten finishes. It’s a hugely difficult circuit and often provides close racing.
With the CIK-FIA European Championship just three weeks away there is a total of 81 drivers entered this weekend which will make Callum’s goals to recover in the championship even more difficult. So far, Callum has consistently shown good pace, but has been unfortunate in the races and that could be down to just trying to find that extra little edge over the rest of his competitors.
As for the track, it is 1547 metres in length and provides a long straight between turns one and two which see’s drivers flat to the floor for almost ten seconds! It is a section of the track which bunches the field and can often decide where races are won or lost on the last lap. There could be mixed weather conditions on Saturday afternoon but other than that it should be a dry weekend with plenty of rubber being laid down.
Given what has happened so far in Callum’s WSK season he has nothing to lose this weekend which could play into his hands. It’s a chance to get everything working perfectly before the European Championships kick off, but also a chance to get that win or podium which may just start off a good run of results at the perfect time!
Ahead of the weekend Callum commented: “We’ve had a tricky few weeks with incidents causing us the potential of some really good results. Sarno didn’t go so well last year, but that’s not going to be playing on my mind this weekend. I know CRG will put a brilliant kart down for me, all I need to do is bring it home and get the result we all deserve!”
