Jackes keeps Asian crown
FLYNN Jackes is on a roll.
The Filipino-Australian, who is coming off scintillating wins at the Carmona Race Track in September and at the Clark International Speedway the following month in the KF3 Restricted Class, kept his Mini-Rok Class crown in the 2014 Asian Karting Championship last weekend.
“The goal was to win the Mini-Rok championship again in 2014, and I’m very happy to have achieved that considering the tougher field this year and the maturation of everyone in the class,” said Jackes.
Keeping his Asian title may have been Jackes’ crowning glory in a young career already replete with countless awards.
A spearhead of the new local satellite of Team Kart Master Drakar of Singapore, Jackes was the local Mini-Rok Class 2012 winner, while placing third in the Asian Championship.
Jackes remains focused in 2015 to compete locally in the Mini-Rok and KF3.
