- The OK1 official team in Spain begins the season in good spirits
Formula de Campeones, the official OK1 team in Spain, has started its second season with the “Train and compete” program of young drivers development with two victories and a total of six podiums. Official Praga Spain driver Nerea Martí and Pedro Vilches, in the Junior category, have given the first double of the year to the Formula de Campeones and occupy the first two positions of the standings, while Mini driver Albert Fernández has finished third.
In his debut in the Junior category, Pedro Vilches shone with the first victory of the year in a smart race, in which he was able to take advantage of his options and his race pace to get away from the rest of his pursuers. The official Praga Spain driver Nerea Martí, who started from the second position on the grid, got involved in an incident on track.
However, she managed to climb to second place on the podium, on the first race, and later to victory on the second one after marching solo towards the chequered flag. Pedro Vilches got the third place of the podium, making it the first 1-2 in the standings for the Fórmula de Campeones. Álex Ochando, in his first races in the category, achieved two valuable seventh positions in both races, maintaining his improvement from the beginning of the weekend until the end.
Albert Fernández, who finished last season as runner-up in the Mini category, has closed the first round of the Valencian karting championship with a podium double, finishing the two first races in third place. Hugo Naturil has got a fifth and a sixth position in his second weekend of competition, after debuting at the end of last year, while Samuel Figueiras has been sixth and seventh in his first experience of official competition.
The Baby drivers Daniel Dallakyan and Carles Albiñana, the youngest of the Formula de Campeones, have started the year among the top ten in their category. Dallakyan was eighth in the first round, while his teammate Albiñana finished ninth. In the second final, the two drivers have shown a very positive trend and have been among the best in the category to finish fifth Dallakyan and ninth Albiñana after losing a couple of positions in the last two laps.
