Singapore, 6 May 2011 – Following a successful season opener at the first round of the 2011 Rotax Asia Zone Challenge (AMC) and Rotax Malaysia Challenge (RMC) championships, James Pull of Dash Racing, is looking forward to repeating the success at Round 2. Leading the championship after scoring maximum points from winning the pre-final and final in Round 1, 11-year-old Pull will be heading to Elite Speedway PLUS Circuit this weekend.
“Dash Racing had a great start to the AMC/RMC season with my team-mate Syazwan winning his category (Junior) as well. John King and his team have been working hard and we hope to continue to do well,” said Pull before he left for Malaysia.
Driving for Dash Racing in Asia, Pull will also be driving for 2005 CIK-FIA Karting World Champion Oliver Oakes’ team in Italy and the United Kingdom and will participate in a number of events this year. His first European appearance of the year was at Round 1 of the Italian CSAI Karting Championship in Naples, Italy in April and his next race in Europe will be in early June at the World Series Karting (WSK) Master Series 2011 Round 4 in Siena, Italy.
2010 was Pull’s first time competing in the full season of the Yamaha SL Cup Malaysia and the Asian Karting Open Championship. Eventually finishing second overall in both series, Pull gained tremendous racing experience and he even led both Championships at certain points of the season. He also headed to Italy at the end of the summer as part of his development programme and participated at a WSK Master Series race.
