James Pull Heads For All Stars This Weekend

Written by Cheryl Tay on . Posted in Cheryl Tay News | Latest Industry News

Singapore, 21 April 2011 – Back from his first European stint of the season in Italy, James Pull is headed to the second round of the All Stars Karting (ASK) 2011 championship this weekend. Held at the Shah Alam Circuit in Malaysia, 11-year-old Pull will be racing with Dash Racing under the guidance of John King.



The ASK 2011 is an all-new kart racing series organised by Langkawi Motorsports Club. Participating in the Cadet category with a Yamaha engine, a Birel chassis is required for all competitors of the series. Held across four rounds at different tracks in Malaysia, Pull is familiar with the race format of a qualifying session before two races – the second race with a reverse grid start.

“Earlier this month I was in Italy for my first European race of the year and I had quite an experience. We (Dash Racing) have had a great start to the 2011 season and I hope to keep up the success this weekend,” said Pull.

Driving for Dash Racing in Asia, Pull is also 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 later this year. He made his first European appearance for this season at Round 1 of the Italian CSAI Karting Championship in Naples, Italy earlier this month.

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.
