Jacob Pearlman, 14, made his Junior Rotax debut in the Gatorz Karting Cup. Gatorz is the largest regional series of the Champ Car Rotax Kart Challenge Series.
Jacob had an excellent start and was running in the lead pack for the first 4 laps of the race. Another competitor attempted to pass and ran into Jacob’s No. 125 DPK Birel. “Both Jacob and his kart went into the hay bales,” said Pearlman. “My son was not hurt and the kart was okay, but the racing day was over.”
Jacob and his dad made the 160 mile round trip drive to the race from Carlsbad, California. “I was impressed with our K&N Cold Air Intake System on our GMC Yukon tow vehicle,” said Pearlman. “Towing was efficient and effortless though the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains with K&N.”
Jacob enjoyed racing with the Gatorz Rotax series. “The competition is first class and the Junior Motors are very fast and very smooth,” said Jacob. “I can’t wait for the next race at the Streets of Willow.”
