TTKA Karting #8

Article by Rae Smith (President, TTKA)

The eight installment of the TTKA championship series got underway at the Arima Race Club carpark around 1pm. Grid places were determined by current point standings and competitors in each class put on an exciting display for the fans and supporters of Kart Racing in Trinidad and Tobago. This event also saw the addition of Monster Energy Drinks, Pepsi and Blue Waters as major sponsors of Kart racing in Trinidad and Tobago. The TTKA thanks them for their support.

The Cadet class had limited action on the day as only two competitors turned up. There was a changing of the guard though as Jonmycal Sant took hold of first place on the day with Enrique De Leon settling for second. In the Mini max class Isa Deen continued his form in Kart # 190 while Nicolas Maddan took second and Shiva Seepersad rounded out the field.

Shane Pinhero got the better of Saleen Deen and Haymat Singh in the 100cc class as the placements in this class changed hands during this event. The 100cc class continues to have its fair share of excitement as this competitors battle for championship points.  Gerrard Carrington was not in his usual form ending his event with a collision that took him out of competition in the second heat of the Masters Class. That left the rest of the field wide open and in the end Fyzool Maddan would claim the spoils followed by George Deen in second and relative new comer Sunil Seepersad taking the third spot.

The Rotax International Class continues to provide great levels of excitement as there were many thrills, superb displays of driving talent and many tense moments in each of the heats completed on the day. The Championship leader, Ryan Peru once again got the better of the rest of the field in taking first place. Young Kristian Boodosingh continues to show improvement in his driving abilities and this paid off for him as he claimed the second spot while Bridgett Singh continues to show her resolve and tenacity in completing the podium in this class.

The ninth event on the TTKA’s calendar is scheduled to take place on October 16 at ARC.
