25th Feb: Wet ‘n’ Wild Ladies’ Night @Kartright

Written by Cheryl Tay on . Posted in Cheryl Tay Blog | Blog Post of Cheryl Tay

The very first Ladies’ Night @Kartright was held on 25th February 2011, Friday evening. I was very excited about it and I’m sure the participants were too.

 

A rain or shine event, we proceeded with Ladies’ Night in the cool night air. Driving in the wet can get messy yes, but still a lot of fun! In fact, driving in the wet is a good indicator of one’s skills as it tests your control and strength.

 

Richard Bradley started by sharing his kart racing experience and some interesting karting stories, before going into the lesson proper and teaching the ladies how to kart. The class was significantly made up of ladies who have not karted before and I’m very encouraged by their enthusiasm to give it a try!

 

Thereafter, it was time to head onto the track. After a brief practice round, qualifying was held for the best timings and then the top 8 went for a quick 5-lap race. Annie Loh started in pole and finished first, followed by Cheryl Yeo who started in 6th before fighting her way to 2nd.

 

I was impressed with the aggression and how some of the ladies are so daring! Here are some photos of the night, courtesy of Lionel Ng and Basil Lam:
