Coming off a strong performance in the CIK-FIA World KF-Junior Championship at the La Conca circuit in Italy Aaron Cameron has set his sights on more European action in 2016.

With 100 competitors in the elite junior category the Victorian teenager was highly competitive all across the weekend finishing the majority of his heat races inside the top ten, only a DNF in his final heat race halted him from starting inside the top ten in his pre-final.

After running as high as seventh during the early running of his pre-final – where the top 17 made the transfer into the final – Cameron was forced off the circuit at high speed that dropped him to the back of the field.

As a result he didn’t make a transfer into the main event, but came away with a significant amount of experience and confidence.

“The qualifying heats went very well finishing inside the top ten, it was only the DNF in the final heat that meant I was 22nd in points,” said Cameron.

“I had to battle with a technical gremlin all weekend which affected the mid-range power but we did our best to work around it and still be up the front.

“The first half of the pre-final I was just focused on staying inside the top 17, I was well within that until a driver pushed me off the track and I nearly hit the wall. I got back on the track but I was in 30th and no chance of making it into the final.

“It has been an amazing couple of weeks and I can’t thank the whole Kartronix International crew enough for getting everything up to scratch for the races. Racing over here is something else and I’m really hoping to be able to get back here and do more racing in Europe next year.

“A big thank you also to my Mum and Dad for their support, it has been awesome meeting so many great drivers over here!”

Queenslander Ryan Suhle had an unlucky event. After crashing in practice when heavy rain soaked the circuit midway through one of his sessions Suhle slid off the circuit and into the barriers. The impact broke one of his ribs and forced him out of the event.

South Australian Josh Tynan also endured an early end to his campaign in the KF class being one of several drivers forced out with a rib injury during the final day.

American Logan Sargent won the KF-Junior Championship while Karol Basz was crowned the KF World Champion for 2015.
