BIREL S5 ROTAX CHASSIS DEBUT
The KartSport Wellington Club Championships saw the debut of the new Birel S5 chassis in the Rotax Light class.
Patrick Davy, in only his first competitive race meeting in Rotax Light, finished first equal after two days of racing, only to loose first place on a count back, despite running an old 2005 generation Rotax engine. This first showing was truly impressive demonstrating the real potential of this exciting new Birel model
In the Junior Yamaha class the new Birel R30C-Y EVO chassis performed very well driven by Ethan Hourigan. In only his first season Ethan finished 3rd behind two very experienced drivers and showing true speed lapping faster and faster as the weekend progressed.
