TTKA Race Day #4

TTKA Race Day #4

The Trinidad and Tobago Karting Association held their 4th event this weekend at the Arima Race Club Car Park. The event featured their two main classes. In the Sportsman class, young Shane Sheppard put his #13 kart on pole position, almost a full second ahead of the second-best qualifying time.
 
Shane’s good fortune didn’t end there. With a hat-trick of 1st place finishes, he took the charge to championship leader Scott Wortman (#21) and reduced the gap, with only seventeen points now separating them in the standings. Scott maintained the second place spot as the events unfolded. The battle between these two drivers will definitely be one to watch as the season progresses.
 
Rossi Lochan (#277) rounded off the podium after overcoming some mechanical gremlins that have been affecting him all season long. Newcomers Siddique Mohammed (#99) and Jonathan Aqui (#426) completed the class and will be looking forward to the next race day to continue their battle with the leaders.
 
In the Rotax International Class, birthday boy Justyn Kanta Persad (#917) qualified on pole and never looked back. He took home two heat wins and secured the fastest time of the day with a 38.737. Look out Mr.Reza Ali because these results just reduced your lead to a mere four points, with six events to go.
 
The other birthday boy, Matthew Singh (#775), followed Justyn closely all day and took home a second place in the first heat and race win in the final of the day. Rotax rookie Dillon Ali (#163) secured the third place spot all day and provided the spectators with some nice wheel to wheel action with both Matthew Singh and Reza Ali in heats one and three respectively.
 
Reza Ali (#111) will be keeping his fingers crossed that his engine problems are sorted out by the next event because the young drivers behind him are hot on his trail. 
 
The next event is scheduled for July 22nd at the Arima Race Club Car Park from 12pm and with the championship race blown wide open in both classes, it definitely is one you won’t want to miss.
