Karting: Sunsail and Sacos-sponsored Mid-Season Grand Prix-Tense competition with fast and exciting driving


07-July-2004

Novice drivers, who had just completed a four-month training programme, were the first to go and they gave a good display.

Roger Pothin took victory on the last lap after Carlos Larue, who had led for most of the race, spun on the last corner and settled for second position.
Third place went to Joshua Mondon, while Jake Juliette claimed fourth position. Michel Fryars, Sebastien Delorie and Michael Juliette were fifth, sixth and seventh respectively.

Since the novices were competing for the first time, Pothin now leads the championship table.

The Cadet class was dominated by Dimitri Maiden who, even after having received a 10-second penalty and spinning on the first lap, outpaced his opponents to claim an easy victory.

He was followed in second and third positions by Stephan Simon and Marc Delcy, while young lady driver Diane Alvis took fourth place.

Despite finishing second, Simon still leads the overall classification table with Maiden closely behind in second place. Roland Delcy, who was not present for Sunday's race, is in joint-third position with his younger brother Marc.

The fight for glory among drivers of the Junior category was fierce. Peter Fred, who started at the back of the field, pulled off a devastating performance to beat Stephan Rosalie to the gold medal.

Current championship leader Eddie Estrale, who still holds a healthy lead over his opponents, had to do with third place, while Ruddy Joseph motored to fourth position. Joshua Gopal and Stephan Emmanuel followed in fifth and sixth places.
The Formula A class provided a lot of excitement as spectators witnessed a lot of crashes and spins during races.

Dave Rene again showed his superiority by winning the race from daughter Liza who finished second. John Simon was third and Andy Alvis fourth.

Christian Larue was fifth, while Joel Lautee, who was in a good position to finish on the medals podium, retired as his kart encountered mechanical problems.

Dave now holds a four-point lead over Liza on the classification table.
The prizes were presented to the winners by Alister Maiden, vice-chairman of the Seychelles Karting Association (SKA).
