Two weeks after getting to know the Rodby Karting Ring under race conditions, Martin Molnár returns to Denmark with the European Championship field to put his experience to good use.
After the first European Championship race of the year took place in Valencia, followed by a visit to the newly constructed track in Trinec, Czech Republic, the drivers of the FIA Karting European Championship, including Molnár Martin in the OK category, will compete between June 15th and 18th at a recently built venue in Rodby, Denmark. The Energy Corse driver got acquainted with the 1245-meter-long coastal asphalt track two weeks ago during the third race weekend of the Champions of the Future Euro Series. The track features diverse corners that offer numerous overtaking opportunities, including a banked turn.
“For my previous race here, I arrived having only driven on this track during testing, but now I can prepare for the European Championship race with the experience of a full race weekend. During the third round of the Champions of the Future Euro Series, I learned where the best overtaking opportunities are and how to position myself on different parts of the track. However, we will face completely different conditions this time since the Academy Trophy field will also be racing, which means the track will have better grip and it will be hotter than two weeks ago. What I hope is to carry over our previous pace because that would give us a good weekend,” looked ahead the athlete supported by the Hungarian Motorsport Academy, who finished in the top ten three times two weeks ago.
A total of 60 nations will have 235 kart drivers competing during the weekend, with the OK category consisting of 90 participants. As usual for the European Championship, the karts will be powered by 100% sustainable fuel. In the OK category, MG tires will be used, while the other classes will utilize Vega tires.
The qualifying sessions in the OK category will take place on Friday afternoon from 14:10, followed by the heats from half past four, which will run throughout the whole day on Saturday. Sunday’s Prefinal will take place from 11.10am and the Final from 3.25pm.
