SENNA Summerbell revelled in the power of the new Rotax evo engines to end the Jamaica Karting Association's (JKA's) fourth meet held at the Palisadoes International Raceway in Kingston, at the top of his class last Saturday.

“I like the new engine,” Summerbell told the Jamaica Observer's weekly Auto magazine.

Summerbell held fast the podium position from start to finish in the Rotax Senior class. After qualifying on pole he never looked back, taking both class finals. He closed the day out on 42 points. The points haul also added to his title defence as he sits at the top of the Abe Ziadie Championship table, karting's highest honour, with 123 points.

In the rest of the classes it was Phillip McCreath, who led the Comer 50 pack. Up one class, in Rotax Micro Max, Shane Chisholm collected 38.5 points also on a dominant performance helping his chase for the Abe Ziadie Trophy. Chisholm is second on that table with 121.5 points. Zander Williams went home with the most points in Rotax Mini Max, while Ryan Lue eventually won the points battled with class rival Tommi Gore. Lue led the points with 39 to Gore's 35. The Summerbell name continued to feature highly as David Summerbell Jr led the Super Rotax class with 36 points.
