Ross Jamison clinches second title in Macau

Teenage karting sensation Ross Jamison has won his second championship of 2005 by finishing second in Macau this weekend. The 15-year old had already tied up the China Senior Rotax Karting title and has now added the Asian Karting Senior Championship. Finishing second in both heats on Saturday, run in cold but dry conditions, gave Ross a front row grid position for the first race on Sunday, the pre-Final, which would then decide the grid for the main event.

Held on Sunday morning, Ross made a great start in the 20-lap pre-Final, leading from start to finish, a result which would give him pole for the all-important Final.

The Final on Sunday afternoon was a closely fought affair with the lead changing a number of times between Ross and eventual winner, Indonesia's Zahir Ali. After 25 laps the two drivers were separated by just 1.5 seconds.

Said Ross: "You always want more, but I am just happy to have clinched the Asian Karting Championship. It is important for my career and I can now look forward to next season, when I intend to combine karting with Formula Renault in China.

"It has been a great year and I am pleased with the results. Thanks to everybody involved, especially my engineer Wai Leong Ng, who has prepared the karts beautifully. Without him, I could not have done it."
