“A Fairy-Tale Weekend”

Danny Keirle World Champion
CIK-FIA World Championship

Danny was described in the commentary of the live feed by WSK as a relative unknown coming into this weekend. His performance certainly means this is no longer the case.

A faultless weekend secured the title for Danny in the CIK-FIA World Championship, a title Max Verstappen claimed only four years ago.

Racing with Chiesa Corse and a Zanardi Kart, Danny had somewhat of a home advantage at PF International. That is not to take anything away from the performance however.

Danny let his intentions known early on in the Championship weekend, setting the fastest lap in his first free practice session. Despite this it was evident that he would have stiff competition with Louie Westover finishing 0.001 seconds behind him. His qualifying practice pace lined him up seventh out of the eighty seven competing drivers to conclude Friday’s sessions.


Saturday brought the first batch of qualifying heats and Danny’s pace was evident from the get-go, finishing second in his first heat. His second heat result was one better, first.

He replicated this in his third heat with another first place. Danny was very quickly becoming the one-to-watch this weekend.

He ended the day with one more first place finish and a fastest lap in his final qualifying heat of  the Saturday sessions. With one more heat to go before the final things were looking good for Danny in his senior class championship debut.

Sunday’s final qualifying heat went exactly to plan and Danny scored another first place. This lined him up first on the grid for the final just ahead of Pedro Hiltbrand Aguilar.

The Final

Danny displayed what many have called on social media following his win a “lesson in karting” in the Final of the CIK FIA World Championship. From start to finish he lead the race and although the pace behind was quick the victory never looked in doubt. With the commentator on the live feed repeatedly stating that this had been a “fairy-tale weekend for the relative unknown” Danny put in a faultless performance as he navigated the very fast and difficult circuit. A lights to flag victory for Danny crowned him the World Champion.
