“Our drivers have been practicing hard for the opener and this is a great result for us, something that will boost their confidence,” said Lord Seno, who heads the Kartzone team.

Rojo drove a mistake-free final heat to grab top honors in a very competitive category out of 21 karters while teammate JT Gullas encountered tuning problems and did not finish the race.

In the Formula SL 100cc Expert Division, fellow Cebuano karter Tonyo Carcel finished 3rd in a neck-to-neck race between Manila’s top karters- Indy Villalon and Castellar twins.

Inch-shy

Teammate Stefan Reroma finished an inch shy of a podium spot in 6th.

International Champ Jette Calderon, the lone Cebuano entry in the ROK 125cc Class, finished 3rd in the Junior Category after qualifying 5th in a field of 17 top karters, while Stefano Marcelo, who once trained in Kartzone, finished in convincing fashion, lapping a second faster than 2nd placer Juha Turralba.
