Young Karting Sensation Concludes Successful Season With Another Title

Reigning New Zealand junior karting champion and Team Kiwi Youth Academy driver, Chris Vander Drift, concluded his most successful season yet by defending his North Island Junior karting title at Auckland's Avondale Raceway over the Labour weekend. On a technical and sometimes damp track Chris used his experience to stamp his authority on the junior class, claiming a convincing victory.

Chris adds the North Island Junior Yamaha title to the double national titles he secured earlier this year in the Yamaha and JICA classes. Amongst other notable achievements during 2001 was his memorable "come-from-behind' victory in the CIK Trophy of New Zealand and the prestigious Junior ICA Pro Series championship.

The team now begins preparations for Chris's entry into the senior ranks in 2002 where he plans to compete in a number of senior classes in New Zealand and Australia.
