Karting Singapore Rental Kart Series - Race 1

POSTED ON: October 25, 2009
The first event in the 2009 Karting Singapore rental kart series saw 19 participants take to the track on an early Saturday morning. The event was held at the Kartright track and was the first of three race events that were planned to mark the end of the race calendar in 2009 - with the remaining races to be held in November and December respectively. Given the strong interest seen in the registrations, the organisers are studying amendments to the format so as to increase the overall number of participants for each event.

The winner of this inaugural event was Andre Tan who completed the 15 lap Final race in a time of  12 mins 08.013 secs; 7 seconds ahead of the runner-up, Amran Mohamed.

The top 6 medal positions were:

1st - Andre Tan
2nd - Amran Mohamed
3rd - Keong Liam
4th - Charles Teo
5th - Andrew Loke
6th - Fuji Sartono

The fastest lap of the day also goes to Andre Tan, who was one of 2 drivers to go under the 48 sec mark. Andre lapped 47.712 on the 8th lap of the Championship Race with Charles Teo as the other driver to clock his fastest of 47.786 on the 5th lap of the Championship Race.

The organisers would like to extend its appreciation to all the registrants that signed up, the 19 participants, the track officials as well as the volunteers who took time to make the event possible.

We were particularly impressed with the support provided by the Kartright team of directors and staff; from the trackside support, as well as a very even and consistent track surface, not to mention that the karts were tuned to be consistent (and this was very visible when watching the karts on the straights) and finally to the availability of data from a recently installed AMB tracking solution.

The results of the championship as well as the race timings are as follows.
