Young Zach wows Clark
Zach David displayed his prodigious talent anew by overwhelming the opposition and scoring back-to-back victories in the Mini ROK class of the Petron ROK GP Karting Super Series at Clark International Speedway’s kart track in Pampanga recently.
The 10-year-old fourth grader from Keys School Manila ruled three of four qualifying heats around the new 13-turn 1.2-kilometer track before sweeping rounds 5 and 6 of the Mini ROK class and ruling one of the two Formula Cadet Overall-Expert races.
He topped the 13-lap round 5 with a time of 12 minutes and 4.255 seconds, a substantial 6.858 seconds clear of round 4 winner Miguel Angeles and 12.464 ahead of William Calleja, with Seb Kawpeng finishing fourth and Francesca Loren Laconico fifth.
In round 6 the following day, David bested the field anew, clocking a quicker 12:02.189 but just pipping Jolo Suba, the youngest of local karting’s Suba brothers, by 0.593 of a second and Junho Kim by 2.417.
