Jewiss stars at WSK Champions Cup
British driver Kiern Jewiss won the Ok-junior class in the WSK Champions Cup at Adria last weekend, grabbing the lead on the final lap.
The 13-year-old was making his debut in the category in Northern Italy and it was also his first race since joining Formula 1 driver Daniel Ricciardo’s karting team.
The Super One National Rotax Minimax champion climbed up the order in the Final to take the win on the last lap after passing Frenchman Timothy Peisselon.
Ricciardo wrote on Twitter: “Not a bad first weekend in the kart. Well done guys.”
Fin Kenneally made it two Britons on the podium in third. It was the first time the new OK engines had been used in a major race. American Logan Sargeant won in the OK division, the 2015 World Junior champion beating Karol Basz. Paolo De Conto won in KZ2 and Michael Paparo took 60 Mini.
