Round 10, K2 race report - Huffiz wins race, but Fazz clinches championship


Saturday, 10 December 2005
Shah Alam Stadium Kart Circuit (CCW)

2004 K2 runner up, Hafidz Fahro Rozi (Huffiz) notched another win in the K2 class with a strong demonstration of skill. Huffiz finished ahead of Salehuddin (Udi) and Fazz Rahman. The 3rd place finish was enough for Fazz to hold on to the K2 championship lead and thus retain the K2 championship for 2005. Udi's second place finish allowed him to pip Abd Razak to the runner up position by 1pt. Razak, Roduwan Abd Rashid (Chepot) and Yew Siak Jin (Jin) round up the top 6 finishers.

Qualifying honours were spread equally between Fazz, Huffiz, Jason Lu and A Muhaymin with a win each. However, top qualifier of the day went to Fazz with 36 pts ahead of Huffiz on 32 pts and Razak in third on 28 pts.

The K2 final race was run over 12 laps thanks to Citykarting's special offer for the 2005 season finale. Huffiz made a great start from 8th on the grid and by lap two he was already in 3rd place and challenging Udi (started 2nd). Fazz, however, made a slow start and finished the first lap still in 9th and last position. Huffiz soon despatched Udi on lap three. And on lap four he passed Chepot for the race lead which he held till the chequered flag. Behind him, Udi chased down Chepot and passed him on lap six. Meanwhile, Fazz made steady progress after the first lap delay and moved to 6th on lap two, and then passed Razak on lap three to move to 5th and passing Jason Lu on lap four for 4th and finally going past Chepot on lap nine for 3rd.

Fazz's 3rd place finish was sufficient for him to clinch the 2005 K2 championship, with Udi finishing as 2005 K2 runner-up. Razak's 4th place finish allowed him to finish 3rd in the championship. Huffiz's second win, though allowed him to leapfrog from 10th before the start of round 10 to 6th in the overall championship position behind Jin (5th) and Julian Ng (6th).

Once in a while we will run into this kind of kart. I believe that city karting had forgotten to "de tune" this particular one.

Congratulation to Fazz for wining the championship!

congrats to Fazz again and also to Udi & Razak.

Sorry to have not given you guys a better run for your money. I had to avoid 4 spinners in my heats and that was that for the day......well, it's my blessing I could avoid them anyway & finished.

By the way, the kart 21 had NO brakes 4-5 laps from the end of my final B. If the tyres did not hold....I would have spun at few places! The driver...just HUNG ON!

Forza My-Kart, Forza Fazz!

thanks jules for your tips. i did it. driving the kart without twitching the tail, or screeching the tyres. just like you said, smooth all the way. without a sound of the tyre. learning something new every race.


Jules's picture

i say your off track excursion with the yellow kart no. 2......at the sweeper at the start.

I think you just nailed the throttle and slide over the grass and back onto the track at full lock......on 1st lap.

Tabik man on your ability & balls size! Smile

Looks like K2 will be busier & noisier for 2006 when you have :
butt2head Tom, cili padi Henzee, nasi lomak man Ed, 4G Turbo Luen challenging the K2 old gingers.

I'm there to be the gardener only, main job is to "kacau daun" and sometimes hope to collect free durians.

Wondering whether the "1/2 underwear" man coming to K2 or not.
