2016 CIK-FIA Best-Of: Bradshaw: from the Academy to the World Junior : www.cikfia.com
As the 2016 grand winner of the CIK-FIA Karting Academy Trophy, the Briton Callum Bradshaw was invited to participate in the CIK-FIA World Junior Championship in Bahrain by OTK Kart Group, the official supplier of Exprit chassis and Vortex engines to the Academy Trophy. Without special knowledge of the OK-Junior category, or prior testing, Callum demonstrated great potential within the 97 Drivers present.
The young Englishman started in the last group in Qualifying Practice, the one that was most disrupted by extreme strategies. His 9th time sent him back to 59th overall with the consequence of starting from the 10th row in every Qualifying Heat. The first went very well with a 6th position at the end of a 13-place climb. He continued to gain ground in three of the four remaining races and eventually moved up to 34th in the intermediate standings. Callum continued on his way to reach the top 10 of Prefinal 2 after a further gain of seven places. His exploits ended unfortunately on the first lap of the Final, an incident causing his retirement... #cikfia #fia #cikfiabestof2016 #kart #karting #worldjuniorchampionship #cikfiaworldjuniorchampionship #bahrain #gokart #gokarting #ksp #kspreportages #bahrain_karting
