Round 02, K2 race report - Jules the star

Saturday, 5 March 2005
Shah Alam Stadium Kart Circuit

Karting sifoo Jules Ng was the star of Round 2 by not only qualifying top and winning the event, but also entertaining the 21 K2 entrants and their supporters to a demonstration run of the made in Shah Alam Modenas engined shifter kart. First runner up was Simon Tan, followed by Yew Siak Jin and Tarmizi.

Round 1 winner Udi maintained a paper thin championship lead over Fazz Rahman, both joint table toppers on 23 points. Jules, Muhaymin, Brian Eravelly and Jin moved up to 20 points to snap at the heels of the leading duo.

Jules was the clear winner after a dominant final race performance. Simon had to fend off a late charge from Jin, whilst further down Brian survived a joint attack from Muhaymin and Fazz to finish fifth in an evil handling kart.

Can only add that thanks to all for a good run and we had a safe day - eventhough there was some K2 kart damage ( shaft, sprocket - ST.....)

The counterclockwise caught a few by surprise esp the hairpin after the main straight.....

Of course this thanks go to both the K3 & K2....cheers!
