Six titles in DD2 Masters in one season? Estonian Priit Sei ended this year’s season with such an achievement. He is the best driver of the oldest category in the Baltic countries.
The four-time participant of the Rotax Grand Finals Priit Sei from Estonia, whom we know perfectly well from participating in karting competitions in Poland, has become the best driver of the 2019 season in the Baltic States. He won five karting series, in sixth he took second place. The driver of the Estonian AGS Racing became the champion of the Rotax Nordic Challenge, Estonian champion, Latvian champion and won the karting cups of these countries. In Estonian Prokart won the runner-up title. This is an incredible achievement of Priit, who also has five Grand Finals tickets.
„The successful and fast 2019 season has already ended. I would like to bow deeply to mechanic Margus and thank my family, helpers and colleagues. We’ve won a lot of gold and fueled all fear”- he wrote on his social profile. After which he listed all his most important this season’s achievements. Unfortunately, despite won of ticket for the Rotax Grand Finals, we didn’t see the Estonian in the Italian event.
Instead, we saw him in several Nordic Challenge events in Poland, where he was on the podium in the DD2 Masters category. This year’s „masters” season ended with a victory, replacing at the highest level the podium of Sławomir Murański, who won this series twice in 2017 and 2018.
Sei is undoubtedly one of the fastest riders in the oldest Rotax category in its part of Europe, in the Baltic States. This season, he beat, among others, the Russian Igor Mukhin and Latvian Eriks Gasparovics in the Nordic Challenge with a convincing point advantage. In Estonia Rotax overtook Henrijs Grube of Latvia, and in the Latvian championships, among others, Latvians Ilija Aloskins and Emils Kerimovs. He only gave way to Ragnar Veerus in the Estonian Prokart series, although during the second racing weekend in Lange he was unstoppable.
The driver from Estonia’s Jõgeva, the coldest city in Estonia, is undoubtedly one of the karting stars of his country. The tiny Baltic state is known for excellent kart drivers. We perfectly remember such competitors as Kenneth Hildebrand, Kevin Korjus and Juri Vips, winners of the Rotax Grand Finals in 2005, 2007 and 2014 or Kairo Kivi, winner of the Rotax Winter Cup in 2009. Priit Sei belongs to the Estonian karting cream. His racing engineer and mechanic is Margus Vellama.
