Study pays off for Italy’s champion

The thrilling final of Kart Fight Mexico was held in the parking lot of the Azteca stadium.

It was a fitting venue as the stadium hosted the 1968 Olympics and two soccer World Cup finals.

Guillermo "Memo" Rojas, Jr., a 4-time series champion in the Grand-Am Sports Car Series and a two-time winner of the 24 Hours of Daytona, who himself started in kart racing, was on hand to advise competitors.

The final grid was included three drivers from the regional final of Guadalajara, three more from Monterrey and four participants from Mexico City. Around the 600-meter track, Birel karts and the talented drivers were able to demonstrate their full potential.

It was 14 year old high school student, Pablo Villasenor who showed nerves of steel and won the final. "I am very happy to win Red Bull Kart Fight. This is a great opportunity for me. This has been a close and difficult competition. I'm excited to travel to Italy and will represent Mexico.”
