Kart: undisputed domination and an important victory in Lonato
Reportagem: Bogdan Cosma Cristofor

Triumph, faultless, talent, mastery... words cannot describe Bogdan Cosma Cristofor's incredible performance in the first of four rounds of the prestigious WSK Super Master Series, in which the Romanian hopeful is already a serious contender for the title. Pole position, victories in all three heats, in the Prefinal and in the Final, the 12-year-old never relinquished the lead in the OK-N Junior class.

Since switching to Juniors at the end of 2023, Bogdan Cosma Cristofor has been racking up podiums and victories. His determination is as strong as ever and the work done with his new British team, Forza Racing, has paid off. After convincing Free Practice sessions, Bogdan started Friday with the fastest time, being the only driver to go under the 48-second barrier. He set off confidently for the official Qualifying session and confirmed this with a magnificent pole position, while also significantly improving his lap times.

Leader from start to finish

Bogdan's progress continued in all three heats. Particularly skilful during the start phases and always very combative during the races, the Romanian won his three heats brilliantly, twice showing great strength of character in the face of adversity. The Prefinal proved to be another tough one in a highly competitive OK-N Junior class, but it was once again Bogdan who crossed the finish line first.

The efficiency of his Exprit-TM kart from the Forza Racing team was confirmed in the Final, as was the consistency of Bogdan Cosma Cristofor, who quickly managed to protect himself from an attack from his pursuers to cross the chequered flag as winner. It was a very important victory, as the young Romanian took the lead in the provisional standings of one of the most important series of the 2024 season, the WSK Super Master Series. After his podium finish the previous season in the WSK Champions Cup, also at the Lonato circuit in Italy, Bogdan can be proud of his start to the season.

"I'd like to thank Jamie Croxford for giving me the opportunity to join Forza Racing, a team that has been crowned World Champion several times," commented Bogdan. "Together with Luca Cavalli, Manuel my mechanic, Machac Motors my engine builder and Cătălin Caloianu my incredible coach, we have done a great job and I think we deserve this victory. My thoughts are obviously with all my partners who make it possible for me to be here: One Properties, Black Fire, Miko Dental, Miko Med, Urban Automobile, Rapundel and Novo Development."
