Driver Diary: Parker Thompson @ Energy Corse Factory Test
"Parker Thompson Joins Energy!!"
Everything happened very fast on this particular trip. It was confirmed that I would be driving for Energy Corse and moving to Italy only three days before I had my first test with the team. That didn’t leave me much time to take it all in and prepare myself! But as always, every time I strap the helmet on its just another day in the office. You have to do business as, in order to be successful.

Energy Collects Successes
August 1, 2011
In less than 10 days, at the end of July, the Zuera circuit brought a long series of podiums, victories and titles to the Energy team, both at the WSK Euro Series and at the CIK-FIA European KF2-KF3 Championships. Considering the many other successes gleaned since the start of the year, Energy Corse is definitely the most effective team in 2011, since none of the other structures can boast such a list of achievements at international level in a half season.
Energy Corse knows the meaning of the word "team". Within the structure skilfully managed by Michele Panigada, nothing is left to chance. Equipment is always perfectly prepared, but the human factor is not forgotten either. It remains a key element for success, as explained by the boss "Kart drivers are often very young and really need to be supported and advised at best. Energy is there to get them on the right track and help them manage their races at best. We have the necessary detachment, competence and experience to help them progress and win".
