Student Achievement – Lachlan Robinson

DESC student Lachlan Robinson competed for the UAE on the world stage at the recent Rotex MAX challenge Grand Finals.  He qualified to represent the UAE after winning the national finals at the UAE Rotex Championships.

Lachlan had the opportunity to travel to Naples in Italy and compete against the very best drivers in his event category.  The races took place on the Circuito Internationale di Napoli track, with 360 competitors taking part, representing 60 different nationalities.  Lachlan had a fantastic week of Karting and heading into the final race was placed 15th.  Sensing he was in a strong position to get a podium finish he managed to manoeuvre his way towards the front.  In a sprint for the chequered flag, he crossed the line in 5th place, the first five drivers were separated by less than one second.   You read the race article by clicking HERE.
