Ahmed Completes Five Title Haul

Brit Enaam Ahmed dominated the World KF Junior weekend at Essay in France to secure his fifth consecutive major international title of the season. Ahmed bounced back from engine woes at the start of the final to sprint away from his competition and take a comfortable win.“The world title is something I’ve wanted to achieve since I began karting,” Ahmed said. “I hadn’t run that engine and carburettor over the weekend before the final. It kept dying and misfiring on the formation laps and I could only use 75 per cent power in the opening laps. From around lap six, I sorted the carb and the engine began heating up which helped me to pull away.“To actually make five titles become a reality is tough. I kept my head down. Essay isn’t a very forgiving track. The surface is very abrasive and if you make a mistake, your race is ruined. You have to be smooth and consistent. I knew I had to be on pole. I haven’t done that all season, and made it more difficult for myself. I couldn’t be lazy and had to dominate.”
