A Marrocan podium at CIK-FIA Academy Trophy

After his victory in the Italian Championship a week earlier, Suleiman Zanfari remained in the same dynamic during the second of the three events of the 2018 CIK-FIA Academy Trophy. The Moroccan motorsport hopeful has worthily represented the colours of his country and the FRMSA (Royal Moroccan Federation of Motor Sports). The points scored at the circuit of Lonato, especially during the Final where he finished in 3rd position, allow him to hope for a flattering classification in this world-renowned FIA karting trophy.

This Academy Trophy has the distinction of seeing young drivers from many nationalities (37 in all) compete at the wheel of identical OK-Junior karts. It’s the talent of the driver, his motivation and his sensitivity in the development of the equipment that make the difference.

In the hot weather, Suleiman Zanfari’s progress was methodical and noticeable. In the Qualifying Heats, he successively finished 5th, 3rd and 5th, posting a fastest lap in the race. In the Final, he made a magnificent start to the race and quickly moved up to 4th position. “The top three were ahead, but I pushed as hard as I could to join them,” commented Suleiman.
