The Jason Tay Racing Blog – SingaporeKarts Sprint Series 2018 Round 2

From the blog of Jason Tay, written by Jason Tay. Never driven this circuit for a long while and had to rely on experiences 5 years ago to get back on pace with the rest. No practice session meant I had to get up to speed quickly in qualifying. The kart I choose had old tyres but still drove like a dream. She caught my eye without any reason and I just walked up to her and said “this kart” when choosing karts. She liked me to get her tail out slightly sideways in corner entry on this low grip track and she gripped on corner exits with correct timing on the throttle. And we basically just danced to pole position (1st place in qualifying) by over half a second. I miss her so much as I type this. The feeling of being one with a machine is just something out of this world. The plan...

Driver Feature: Interview with Denis Lian

In this special edition of Driver Feature, we interview our very own homegrown former professional race driver, Denis Lian. SK: How did you begin your racing career? 你是如何开始你的赛车生涯的? DL:When I was 9yrs old, I visited a family Friend in the US, who happen to live next to a fun kart facility. I was always attracted to Motorsports even at that young age. I therefore wanted to drive a kart very badly, but when I went to the facility, the crew said I was too short to safely reach the pedals so I wasn’t allowed to drive. I wasn’t put off by their decision, not one bit. In fact, I was already devising an idea to get myself in the Drivers seat. The moment I got back to my room, I immediately began stuffing tissue paper into my shoes to make myself taller so that I could meet the minimum height requi...
