2018 OPPORTUNITY BY PAROLIN: A CHASSIS THAT WINS… DOES NOT GET CHANGED
Parolin Racing Kart had made, in 2017, important work on its Opportunity kart for the 60 mini category and had excellent results. Further improvement on the new fairings in 2018 has confirmed these exceptional results. Therefore, it is definitely worth to examine this very interesting chassis in-depth.
The first half of the 2018 racing season was enough for Parolin’s kart Opportunity to confirm itself as the reference point for the Mini category, especially regarding the WSK competitions. In the WSK Master series, an international event defined by four important appointments, the final classification of the 60 Mini is clearly: first and second positions are conquered by two Opportunity chassis by Parolin. A confirmation which further underlines the strength and greatness of the project by Parolin in one of the most difficult and competitive categories in karting.
Compared to the 2017 model, already presented on the TKART at that time, the 2018 version has been improved with new fairings, now produced by KG. Changes and the results which deserved a further and more thorough analysis.
