Mobil launches Kart Championship
MJL Bangladesh Limited, the Alliance Partner of ExxonMobil, has organised a karting championship, to be held from the 1st of September to the 14th, 2018. Implemented by Xtreme Racing, a concern of Concord Group, the championship will be held at the go-kart track adjacent to Ashulia's Fantasy Kingdom theme park.
More than a 100 racers competed head to head on the first day of the qualifying round on September 1, with the second and final rounds to be held on the 8th and 14th, respectively. More than 300 go-kart racers will compete for cash prizes and Mobil 1 products. The final day of the championship event will see Tom Goh and Angeline Lee from Malaysia in attendance.
While motorsport events are not common in Bangladesh, the organisers hope the championship will foster an interest in pro-driving.
