Parkers Blog: Podium at WSK Euro Series in Genk, Belgium
June 3, 2013
The Karting Genk International Circuit was absolutely fantastic from a driver's perspective! It was an extremely fun layout to drive. The layout created a lot of passing, which is great for both driver and spectator no matter the circumstances. The track design and structure is in my opinion one of, if not the best in Europe. It had Formula One style run off, and it was a classy facility. Very modern, for a karting facility. The one big downside to the track though was the location. The weather was absolutely crazy. Sunny, then cloudy at the snap of a finger! I don't like this, because it puts a lot of stress not only on the driver but the mechanic. And Genk, Belgium is known worldwide for this. Also, the track is located right next to a Motocross track. This is really annoying, because with all the dust the track would change a huge amount from session to session. You never knew what the track conditions were going to be, which is very difficult as a driving always having to adapt to the conditions given but still being on the absolute limit.
