Kenny Wins Ironman Race 2009
Team Kookaburra Racing's Kenny Hwang and Stephen Kok participated in the K2 category which comprises of 15 racers. After the kart ballotting and kart setup, qualifying sessions began shortly. Kenny qualified a spectacular 5th position on the grid while Stephen struggled with his kart which lacked grip and braking to qualify poorly at 13th.
The Ironman race started shortly later with the 30 minutes feature race session. Kenny started off well the moment the "go" flag went down and climbed up the ranks together with precision driving, stamina and perfect strategy to lead the race. And by maintaining consistent race driving, Kenny took the finishing line to be the champion of the inaugural My-kart Ironman race 2009. Luck was not on Stephen's side and manage to improve his position with the struggling kart to only 11th. Finishing the race was a tough test on endurance racing capabilities and surely a great result for Team Kookaburra Racing!
