Bratt Returns to Karting

1 Mins read

GP2 Asia driver Will Bratt made a successful return to karting when he took part in a recent meet at the Shenington kart track.

Bratt, who will be racing in the FIA Formula 2 Championship this season, took the opportunity to go back to racing karts to keep his racing skills sharp.

Entering in the 250cc National Gearbox Karting event at his local track, the 21 year old from Banbury left the event with the series lead, having made a winning return to the formulae and setting a new track record in the progress.

The reigning Party Poker Racing Euroseries 3000 Champion and GP2 Asia star, Bratt entered in a Honda engined Jade kart, he battled with series regulars Stephen Lane and Loius Wall, and Bratt went on to claim victory by 2 seconds.

“It's always a good idea to stay sharp with a bit of karting and always nice to win, whatever race you're taking part in”, said Will, “It was by no means easy this weekend, there was some genuine competition, but I really enjoyed myself and had a great time. In the wet on Saturday during practice we were very quick, to then go on and win and set a new lap record capped a really fun weekend.”

Bratt will next hit the track when he has his maiden F2 test at Snetterton on the 6th April, ahead of the 2010 campaign.
