Little Alvis is home for CNY!

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

Remember I wrote about a Singaporean boy who is based in France and winning the karting races in his hometown? Yes, Alvis is back home for CNY and I met up with him at Kartright two days ago. I’ve not met him in his racing gear and he really looks so so cute in them!

I forgot to tell his mum Esther that the minimum height requirement at Kartright for the rental karts is 1.4m! Oops, Alvis is only 1.2m+. Erp..

They just bought a brand new Arai helmet from William so he kindly drew out one of his customers’ karts for Alvis to test. It belongs to a girl and I think it hasn’t been used for some time (the mechanic was revving the engine for a while before it started properly).

The kart got up and running and Alvis was raring to go! Esther was telling me how he hasn”t karted in a month, hence he’s been itching to kart!

Just look at the feet! They”re so adorably cute! (Oh no, I think my motherly instincts are bursting out of me…)

Off he goes! He was at it for the next two hours, going round and round and round and enjoying himself immensely.

I wasn’t dressed appropriately that day hence I couldn’t kart with him (I would be beaten FLAT by him anyway, so save me the humiliation!). He’s here until mid-Feb so we’ll arrange to go karting again at Kartright or maybe at Sepang even! I’m meeting them again tonight for dinner! Can’t wait to see him again.. Now let me go find Ferrari goodies for this prancing horse fan! :)
