After only a little over 12 months Go-karting at Bira International track, Pattaya, brothers Austin and Toby Gale have seriously made their mark in the racing scene.  Pattaya Mail reported on them back in March 2022, and since then, they seem to have flourished even more so.

Recently Toby, 12, won the Rotax Cadet Championship of Thailand 2022, after dominating the 5 rounds throughout the year winning 9 out of the 10 races.  His older brother Austin, 13, also attained major results gaining several 1st and 2nd places throughout the season in the Junior category in various race series.



The young boys will now go to represent Thailand in the Rok World Finals at South Garda Karting track in Lonato, Italy 19-22 October, followed by Toby proudly in the Rotax World finals in Portimão, Portugal from November 19-26, 2022.

Both brothers climb to join a group of Thailand’s top Go-kart drivers in their age category which is something short of remarkable.  In a sport that takes many years to master and refine skills, this amazing siblings duo have achieved the feat in a little over 12 months.

The future
As their podium results and trophy’s count continues to grow, they now look to more international races in 2023 starting with the X30 iGames in Spain this November, a well known race series that runs throughout Europe.  Next year, they will attend major UK races which will see the boys traveling monthly to test their skills against international racers in a far colder climate where the Karts handle very differently.

Teams
The brothers race for the well-known CRG Racing Thailand team led by Khun Leng Nimitchaiyapong, whose European team mates have recently won a world Championship Cup.  When the boys race in the UK, they will join the Croc Racing, who already has a Junior World champion within their team.
