AutoInc Singapore Karting Championship (Round 1)

AutoInc Singapore Karting Championship 2011 (Round 1)
23-24 April 2011, Kartright Speedway

Second season of the Singapore Karting Championship (SKC) finally kicked off on 23 April 2011. The new date was postponed from the original date of 2-3 April. The new date clashes with the round two of the All Stars Karting (ASK) to be held in Malaysia, Shah Alam Circuit. It is unfortunate and a great pity that Jon has to give ASK a miss!

This is the first time Jon is racing with his younger brother, Josh, who just turned nine, two months ago. Despite being the second youngest in the cadet category and first time racing, Josh fought his way through, and hung on to third position throughout the whole race.

Jon, on the other hand, lead throughout the  weekend and won with pure dominance. From Qualifying at pole to Heat 1 and Heat 2, Jon pulled away from the field with more than four seconds. Even in Pre-final and Final, there was never a doubt that any driver will be able to challenge Jon.

In the end, both brothers were on the podium to receive their trophies, first and third position respectively!

Thanks to all the sponsors, Drakar Racing, Motul and Neuromath Pte Ltd for sponsoring Jon in the entire season of SKC 2011. Jon will do his best to defend his championship title and continue to make his sponsors proud!

From tomorrow and the next three weeks, Jon will be putting all his focus in his studies, preparing and sitting for his school's Semester Assessment 1 examinations. He will return to Kartright on 14 May to race in the Round Two of SKC.
