Dubai: The future stars of go-karting celebrated their achievements at Dubai Kartdrome in the final championship round of the Dubai Bambino Cup on May 11. Shonal Kunimal, who was faultless on the day, picked up his fifth consecutive victory.
Despite challenges in the first time-trail, Shonal continued his winning streak to dominate the final championship Round five in the Dubai Bambino Cup. Out of 4 time-trail, Kunimal won 3 time-trials on his way to victory, achieving an overall best lap time of 1:15.408 on the 1.25-kilometre at Dubai Kartdrome.
