Ang to keep mastery of karting field
Jacob Ang of Eagle Cement Racing Team seeks a reprise of his victory in Macau last month when he sets out as the prohibitive favorite in the second leg of the Asian Karting Open Championships series sponsored by Petron at Carmona Racetrack this weekend.
Ang, the 16-year-old son of San Miguel Corp. top honcho Ramon S. Ang, bested the region’s finest karters to rule the F125 Senior Open, F125 Veteran Open and X30 Senior categories in the first round of the series at the Kartodromo De Coloane in Macau.
The season defending champion will go up against practically the same field he bested in the former Portuguese enclave, including compatriot Eduardo Coseteng, Japanese ace Kaito Tsukada, Briton Reece Ushijima and China’s Yan Liang.
