A return to their first love….

Published on August 12th, 2010

The amazing driving rain of the championship formula Renault 3.5 and the driver of the Junior Lotus Team Lotus: Nelson Panciatici will return to his first love, the karting. It will occur driving the time of both turns of clock of the next 25th 24h du Mans Karting which will take place on the circuit Alain Prost from the 25th to the 29th of august.

As a former Kartman of high level competition (driver CRG in European championship, world champion by team in 2004 with SODI), it didn’t take long to Nelson to accept the invitation of his friend Nils Bernardet to share the steering wheel of the KF2 whom this last one drives in the championship Euro-Endurance for the team DRK Motorsport, hosted by Laurent Daumard and sponsored by the ASK ROSNY 93.

And it is a well sharpened team which will be presented at the end of August during the Mancelle event because Nils and Nelson will share their tub with the second driver of the Junior Team Lotus Formula Renault 3.5, the Russian Danii Move, as well as Pierre Combot who was for a long time in the head group of karting (vice-champion of France Elite in 2003), before joining the single-seater, too.

About the practical terms, the team DRK Motorsport decided to change gear ratio and got stuck in. They will represent the brand DR RACING which belongs to the Italian driver Danilo Rossi (5 times world champion). This event of endurance is not a first to Danilo who made a fantastic participation in 2003.

Danilo Rossi, who became a manufacturer in the beginning of 2009, sent two types of frame to find the most appropriate equipment, this during two days of extensive tests in the end of July on the tracks of Le Mans.

Throughout all these tests and indirect connection, with a quite focus Danilo Rossi, the performances didn’t take long to progress very quickly with stopwatches to feed the justifiable ambitions of the crew.

For the « 24 Heures du Mans », the frame DR will be motorized by official IAME KF2.
