Paolo De Conto took the victory of the Main Event in Las Vegas, crossing the finish line more than 6 seconds clear of internationally recognized rivals of the likes of Anthony Abbasse, Bas Lammers, Jonathan Thonon and Lorenzo Camplese.
Paolo De Conto claimed his second victory in Las Vegas in this occasion, repeating the success of 2014. The Italian driver has had a stunning 2016 season with CRG – he won in fact the KZ World Championship in Kristianstad (Sweden) on CRG-Tm and category KZ2 at the Race of Stars last October 16th in Australia.
CRG Nordam has fielded the Americans Matt Jaskol and the recent winner of Indy 500 Alexander Rossi in KZ2, but both drivers had to retire early from the Final. The team’s lineup was completed by the Swede Benjamin Tornqvist, who ended third at the CIK-FIA International KZ2 Super Cup earlier in the season and was 13th in Las Vegas this time.
Among the 10 categories on track during the weekend, Robert Marks won S4 Super Master SuperNats on CRG. This win earned him the Skusa Pro Tour title victory.
