KANATO’S RACE REVIEW
“I’m delighted with my performances this weekend. I’d like to say a huge thank you to all of the team at Strawberry Racing for their help and support, we’ve made a big amount of progress over the past few weeks as we prepared for this weekend, I'm very grateful to them and pleased we can share these victories together.
The kart felt great all weekend and that meant I was really confident in the races, which helped me push my way through the field early in the weekend. I really enjoy the layout of the Zuera circuit and I quickly found a good rhythm.
“To leave Spain in second place in the championship is a really positive result. I’m determined to keep working hard both at the track and at home to make sure I’m as prepared as I can be to have another successful weekend in Italy in July.”
