The Red Bull Kart Fight is now in full swing.

 

Over the past eight weeks, both seasoned and amateur drivers have been flocking to the badger karting track to experience the thrill this national event is offering. With more than 600 participants so far, the Red Bull Kart Fight has become an esteemed event in the local motor sports calendar.

 

The Red Bull Kart Fight is a global tournament being held to determine the fastest amateur kart racer in the world of Red Bull. National competitions being held worldwide are looking for the best racers to represent each country. Each racer will then have the opportunity to represent his or her country during the upcoming Red Bull Kart Fight World Final at the Red Bull Ring inSpielberg,Austria.

 

After attempting their fastest lap in individual sessions, the 50 fastest participants in Maltawill battle it out at the National Final on the 30th November and 1st December 2013, the fastest of whom will beMalta’s representative.

 

Fighting for a Top 50 spot is proving to be very tough, as a second can make all the difference. There is still time, however, and anyone can make it to the National Finals.

 

This week, a special event was held at the Red Bull Kart Fight track, where veterans of the local motor sports scene were invited to take on the challenge themselves. Hubert Camilleri proved to be  still in winning form  registering  the fastest lap of the evening with 36:64, but still out of  the top 50 spot. We mentioned  veterans but here we had racers who are still competitively racing in Sicily, winning the last event of the ICC Championship event a few weeks ago. Definitely these veterans still have quite a bit of propulsion  into competitive racing.

 

Action will continue to take place at the Badger Karting track in Ta’Qali until November 24th. Don’t miss out!
