An injury put an end to Tamás Gender Junior's promising race weekend

Despite having a good pace and improving his starting position three out of four times in the Heats, Tamás Gender Junior was forced to withdraw from the third round of the WSK Super Master Series on the Final day due to a rib injury.

Tamás Gender Junior's season continued with the third round of the WSK Super Master Series in Sarno, near Naples. The 12-year-old kart driver of Parolin Racing Kart did a great job in the Heats, as shown by the fact that he finished three out of four times better than where he started.

However, the extremely fast but very uneven asphalt of the Circuito Internazionale Napoli was not kind to the HUMDA-supported driver, who qualified for the Pre-Finals on Sunday to try to reach the Final but was unable to participate on the last day of the race due to a rib injury.

"After I couldn't get a clear lap in Friday's qualifying session, because I either had to overtake or I was held up, the Heats started well: in the first Heat I had the best first sector. I lost a few positions at the start, but I made up more than that, so I managed to improve two places from my starting position and saw the chequered flag in 13th place," said Tamás Gender Junior.

"After that, I had three Heats on Saturday. I had a good start in the first two, improving several positions in both races, and then I had some exciting battles. I was looking forward to the third qualifying session, but it didn't go smoothly as I lost pace and positions due to a major battle in which my left front steering linkage damaged."

"I still secured my place in Pre-Final A, but I was unable to compete on Sunday because I found out that due to the conditions of the track I had suffered a rib injury during the Heats. Instead of racing, I had to seek medical treatment but I'm hopeful that I'll be fit for the upcoming weekend and will be able to compete in the Champions of the Future series in Valencia."

If that happens, the season will continue for Tamás Gender Junior in Spain between 10-12 March.
