Yevan David, The little Karting hero
The Asia X30 karting tournament concluded at Bandaragama..
The sport of karting will return to Queensland’s Gold Coast for the first time in more than five years when the inaugural Race of Stars kicks off this month.
The event will feature the three ‘Pro’ categories of Australian karting, divided into Pro Gearbox (KZ2), Pro Light (KF) and Pro Junior (KFJ) as well as another three state-based classes TaG 125cc, Junior National and Cadets along with a ProAm race. Yevan will be taking part in the junior category.
Each category will have a maximum of 28 starters on the grid which is the same number of competitors in the 2013 V8 Supercars Championship with the top 20 drivers of the CIK Stars of Karting standings to receive the first invitations for their respective categories.
Yevan, who was crowned the South East Champion in 2017, showed plenty of excitement about racing on one of the fastest karting circuits in the World which is a challenge that he’s really looking forward to overcoming.
It is expected that more than 250 drivers, including numerous internationals, will be in action come the start of the event this month.
And further the Race of Stars will launch the Gold Coast into a ten-day celebration of motorsports.
