CEBU’S GO CLOSES IN ON SUBA AFTER DOMINANT 3RD LEG

-

Cebu prodigy William Riley Go ruled the final race and came away with the Mini ROK class’ best points haul in the third leg of the 2018 Asian Karting Open Championsh­ips (Akoc) at Clark Internatio­nal Speedway in Pampanga recently.

The 10-year-old Go conceded all three 7-lap qualifying heats to compatriot­s Joharry Suba and Zachary David but scored the victory from pole spot in the pointrich final race with a time of 14 minutes and 48.579 seconds, just 0.214 seconds clear of Suba.

Singapore’s Nicole Muzzayin flashed home third in 14:41.919 followed by Miguel Angeles in 14:15.253, with Simon Zhang completing the podium finishers in 14:50.573 in the races sponsored by San Miguel Corp. and Petron.

Still pumped up by his triumph in the season closer of the Cadet X30 Southeast Asian Series in Pattaya, Thailand, in September, Go of Piers Sexton Racing Team pooled 65 points and moved closer to the front-running Suba in the Akoc overall tally with 166 points.

Suba topped the second and third qualifying heats around the 13-turn 1.2-kilometer circuit to boost his series total to 182 points. Other winners: Jerry Choi (Formula 125 Veteran Open), Anthony Suba (F-125 Master Open), DonBatino (FocalCeram­icPro Challenge) Cebuano rider William Riley Go(right) pips Joharry Suba (left) and Singapore’s Nicole Muzzayin at the payoff line.
