Karting: National championship round three-Ebrahim, Moolraj and Rene winners


10-June-2009

The Junior class saw a total of eight drivers pitch up to race, filling up the grid and increasing the level of competition.

Dayne Ebrahim managed to conquer his opponents, picking up 42 points with two wins and two third-place finishes.

He was followed closely by Yannick Gabriel with 40 points, putting him in second position for the round, while Franchisco Thiroomooldy finished third with 38 points.  Andrew Gabriel was fourth with 36 points, Mervin Serret fifth (23), Alexander Camille sixth (22), Montell Kutz seventh (20) and Neil Renaud eighth (19).

In the Ladies’ class Karishma Moolraj came in first, collecting maximum points, while Marie-Lucy Sullivan finished second. Mitra Labrosse and Bernadette Mein were third and fourth.

Meanwhile, Debra Mellon faced technical difficulties in the fourth round and did not complete the race, leaving her with a fifth-place finish.

Drivers Damien Bonnelame, Mervin Sophie and Christian Bastienne, previously from the Junior class, were moved up to the Formula GX category due to age limits and a lack of drivers.

Karishma Moolraj won with 48 points, while Roland Delcy, who was making a comeback after being away from karting for a year, tied in second place with Bonnelame on 37 points. They were followed by Sophie (33), Bastienne (28) and Camille Underwood (25). Missing from the race was Peter Fred, who was unwell on the day.
The Formula A class provided four interesting races.

Vic Preston Junior was introduced to the category and he drove the first ever Rotax Max-powered kart in Seychelles. He was, however, forced to retire early due to an overheating problem incurred during the second race, leaving Dave Rene to dominate the class with three first places and a runner-up finish.

Johnny Simon came in second and Marc Delcy was third. Driver Stephan Simon could not complete all four races after facing technical difficulties with his kart’s engine.

The day ended well with four races completed in all the classes and the fine weather holding up till the end.
