Sanctioned by the Singapore Motor Sports Association (SMSA) and officiated by Singapore GP, Round Four of the SKC saw a total of 55 drivers participating over the weekend at the iconic Marina Bay F1 circuit turns 22-23.
For the first time in Singapore, world-class karters competed under the bright lights at the AMBKC, a featured night race that saw international karting stars such as Roberto Toninelli of Italy and Karol Basz of Poland who were ahead of the pack. “This is a very difficult track because of the sharp turns, but it was an amazing experience to be able to race under the lights. This was my first time racing in Singapore and I am ecstatic that I came in first despite the tough competition,” said 20-year-old Basz.

Italian driver Flavio Camponeschi became the CIK-FIA Karting World Champion at the 2nd round of the championships which were held in Macau last weekend. His dominant form in Japan where he won 3 of 4 races for maximum points (worst result is dropped), meant that 2nd, 4th, and 5th in Macau was enough to earn him the World Championship title despite Briton Tom Joyner doing his best by winning all 4 races in Macau, which was only good enough for 2nd in the final points table. Macau driver Andy Chang thrilled the local crowd with his impressive form taking 7th and 6th in Sunday’s race 3 and 4 respectively.
Indian driver Jehan Daruvala took the KF3 Asia-Pacific after winning the heats and pre-final. He had to fight hard in the final taking a narrow win ahead of Japan’s Marino Sato after a race-long battle and last-lap overtaking.
