After the qualifying session, Heat 1 was held under the scorching sun. Jon was able to improve his position to 6th. The next morning, Heat 2 was the first race of the day but it did not end well for the Team. After avoiding a crash, Jon’s right wheel somewhat caught another kart causing it to puncture. He continued driving but was not able to turn properly & eventually came back 24th. Starting from 14th in the Pre-Final, Jon again managed to progress up & finished at 10th.
In the Final, while dicing with a few karts at the so called “mickey mouse” section, he collided & spun out. Continuing with the race & eventually finishing at 21st eventhough his race pace would put him at 9th fastest. It was a promising start for Jon’s 2013 race campaign but ended with a tough day.
