Karting Singapore Thunderkart Racing Series 2011 - Race 1

POSTED ON: May 23, 2011

Its a new racing year for everyone including the grassroot community.

Karting Singapore launched their 1st race of the year at Kartright Speedway as a night race on the evening of 21 May 2011.

In usual fashion, it was great to see that people still enjoyed value-for-money racing at $70/head and all 30 participant slots were snapped up just days after the registration list was opened via the Karting Singapore forum.

Several changes were implemented this year following feedback over the 2010 races. These were:

# classification of Karting Singapore grassroot rental kart racing as the “Thunderkart Racing” series.

# the creation of 2 classes for the “Over 70KG Clubman” and the “Under 70KG Clubman” in order to reduce the effects of weight on racing performance.

# rolling laps would be mandatory for all races. this is aimed to move all participants to a higher awareness of race starts at karting’s higher classes

# zero-tolerance for contact - penalties would be dealt out to participants for reckless or over-enthusiastic racing deemed to potentially lead to collisions or accidents
# adopting Kartright’s blend-line ruling - penalising anyone crossing the blend line at the Pit exit as per the rules introduced by SMSA for sanctioned events held at Kartright

Fortunately, with clear skies and a relatively dry track with isolated spots of puddles, racing commenced. The results of which are as follows:

Clubman Over 70KG class
1st - Charles Theseira
2nd - Bong Andres
3rd - Jason Lou

Clubman Under 70KG class
1st - Jonathan Lim
2nd - Tresca Wee
3rd - Jeffrey Sim
