(The Philippine Star) - June 28, 2012 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Flynn Jackes, the top gun of Tuason Racing School (TRS)-Castrol Kids Team, plunges into a different challenge as part of the lean but mean Philippine Karting Team vying for honors in the opening round  of the 2012 Asian Karting Open Championship set June 28-July 1 at the highly-technical Kartodromo de Coloane Circuit in Macau.

It will be the first international stint for the nine-year-old Fil-Australian who’s hoping to deliver the Mini-ROK crown for the country through the big support of Castrol, Bridgestone, Standard Insurance, C! Magazine, OMP, Coke Zero, Oakley, Aguila and Toptul.

Jackes was chosen to represent the country in the prestigious event being one of the frontrunners of the Mini-ROK class in the ongoing National Series. He will be going up against the best counterparts in the region for the coveted plum.

“We are all excited for Flynn.  It’s a different challenge because it’s not just a fight for personal glory.  It’s a much bigger honor fighting for the national flag,” said JP Tuason, founder and president of TRS.

“We expect that Flynn will learn a lot from this experience.  We believe that he will be one of the best racers of his generation and this stint is one big step to achieve that goal.” he added.
