·1 min read

A CEBUANO karter became the first Filipino to podium in the European competition WSK Euro Series.

This, after karting prodigy William John Riley Go nabbed third place in Round 1 of the renowned WSK Euro Series at the Circuito South Garda Karting in Lonato, Italy last July 18, 2022.

Go of Forza Racing completed the 17-lap course in 13:40.977 to finish behind Jan Przyrowski (13:38.243) of Poland and Rene Lammers (13:39.067) of The Netherlands.

“As the first Filipino to bag a podium in the WSK series, it is indeed a great joy for me to bring pride to the Philippines. It motivates me to improve further in my future races,” Go wrote on his official Facebook page.

Go, 14, held his ground against the tough 70 international speedsters to finish in third place.

“An unexpected and memorable weekend!,” he said.

Last May, Go also made history when he finished second in Round 1 of the FIA Karting Academy Trophy in Genk, Belgium.

“I would like to express my gratitude to the people who continuously support me. To my WV family, my team: Forza racing, my engine provider: GFR engines, my mechanic: Lazzaro Ferri, my coach: Davide Fore, my companion: Marthny Miano, and Infinity Sports Management. I could not have gone this far without your relentless effort and support, pushing me towards my goals. To the Almighty Father and Our Lady, I owe this all to you,” he ended.
