2016 ASN Canadian National Mini-Max Champion Jason Leung is tackling a European challenge this month. The young driver from British Columbia has traveled Belgium to take part in the X30 Euro Challenge as well as the Rotax Euro Challenge at the famous Genk Karting Circuit.
Leung has joined up with the PDB-Gillard race team and will make his Junior debut after graduation from Mini-Max.
Arriving in Belgium last week, Leung and his driver coach Stepanova Nekeel spent time testing at Genk, as well as famous German circuit Mariembourg and Kerpen.
“I feel a little bit nervous because it’s my first race in Junior. But I’m excited to race drivers from all of Europe and want to learn as much as possible. The last four days have been really tough and I’ve been pushing hard because I haven’t driven since November. I love the track and I’m hoping for a good race.”
