The Batt brothers have many points in common: they learn fast, they like karting… and they win titles! Indeed, the two members of Batt Motorsport, for which Motul is a technical partner, have pulled off the fine achievement of succeeding one another on the honours list of the highly popular KRA Championship (nearly 200 karters compete on some racing weekends) held at the New Castle Motorsports Park (Indiana, USA).
After the title of the elder, Evan, in 2010, it was younger brother Eric who won the 2011 crown thanks to his Zanardi Kz 1 - DDR Honda 125cc kart with gears. With 7 victories in the first 12 rounds (all raced on different tracks at New Castle Park), Eric even let his big brother drive at the 13th and last round, which the latter won!
Note should also be made of Eric's fine win – and Evan's 4th place – at the 2011 TAG World final held at the beginning of October where they faced fierce competition. The Batt brothers are therefore well and truly tomorrow's hopefuls.
