Suba, Cudala rule Sorteo GP


REIGNING Karter of the Year VJ Suba and Raymond Cudala dominated their respective divisions in the recent Sorteo Grand Prix 2013 Coca-Cola KF2-KF3 Cup Series at Carmona Racetrack.

Suba topped three of the four races in the KF2 division while Cudala, 13, debuted impressively in KF3 by similarly racking up three wins.

The KF2 race pitted former teammates Suba and defending champion Milo Rivera.

The 16-year-old Rivera drew first blood as he squeaked past Suba by just 0.110 of a second in Race 1. Estefano Rivera placed third.

But Suba bounced back strong as he thwarted the Rivera brothers in Race 2 and reasserted his supremacy in Race 3 over Milo Rivera and Daniel Miranda.

In the 10th lap of Race 4, Milo Rivera suffered engine trouble while KF2 first-timer Miranda stayed close behind Suba and almost wrested the lead.

However, Miranda also suffered engine malfunction with just a lap to go, allowing Suba to romp to his third straight triumph, this time over Japanese Yuta Tan and Bobby Domingo.

Cudala, a strong contender for the Junior Karter of the Year award, beat last year’s Formula SL Expert champion Jaz Monzones in the first three races.

Monzones recovered in Race 4 where he foiled Cudala’s bid for a four-race sweep.  Steve Silva, Contributor
