Congratulations to junior school pupil Skye Parker (J1G), who recently competed at the Dubai O – Plate Open Championship.
The O-Plate is the United Arab Emirates’ annual big weekend for professional kart racers held at the Dubai Kartdrome. The event sets local talent up against international drivers for top honors of becoming Dubai O-Plate Champions on the world renowned circuit.
Skye travelled to Dubai in January, having partnered with a racing team to provide equipment and support during the race weekend. Prior to the race, Skye spent a few days acclimatising to the humid conditions, the challenging track and the new kart set up. Following a hugely competitive weekend of karting, we were delighted to find out that Skye had placed within the top 10 over the course of four separate heats.
This is a fantastic achievement and with the karting scene at an all-time high, her impressive performances in these kind of events offer hugely encouraging signs for the future.
Lights out and away we go!
