Pierce Lehane leads the battle pack in KZ2

Paolo de Conto and Marijn Kremers have shared KZ2 heat wins on the opening day of racing at the 2017 Race of Stars.

Davide Forè qualified fastest at the Gold Coast’s Xtreme Karting Complex but had two trying heats.

De Conto, the back-to-back defending world champion and 2016 Race of Stars winner, took out Heat 1 despite losing out in a thrilling on-track duel with Forè.

Forè had been hit with a starting penalty which put him back to eighth in the classification, handing the win to his Italian compatriot.

Dutchman Kremers prevailed in a battle between he, Pierce Lehane, and Forè in Heat 2, with the latter’s race coming to a premature end due to a gear selector issue.
