ROTAX Winter Cup 2010: Sasahara unschlagbar
World Junior Max champ Ukyo Sasahara has taken a brilliant victory to be crowned the winner of the 2010 Rotax Winter Cup in Spain in his first race with the Austrian-based Intrepid Force Rotax team, making his debut into European karting an instant success.

|The tiny 13-year old from Japan literally ran away with the 12 lap final within moments of the start at the Karting Campillos circuit in the magnificent southern Andalusia region. Starting from grid position 3, Sasahara closely followed the polesitter through the first of the tight corners on the highest section of the track before making his move for the lead and never looking back. As the pack behind battled for places, it gave IFR’s only junior contesting the Winter Cup the advantage of stretching the gap to over 6 seconds by the chequered flag. |
For Sasahara, winning the Winter Cup title only two weeks after winning the first ever Rotax Winter Cup in Japan was a great double to begin his 2010 assault. “I’m very happy to win here in Spain and want to thank all my special personal sponsors, EIKO Japan, Team IFR and my family for all their support. There are many very good drivers in this field that I have really enjoyed racing against. The qualifying was not my best, but the final was easier than I expected. I am also very happy to win the free entries to the Euro Challenge and thank RGMMC. Now, I cannot wait for the racing!”
