Background: In Hong Kong, the fourteenth International Kart Grand Prix was held last weekend (27/30 November). Over 50 drivers took part, including Britain's Terry Fullerton, one of the world's top drivers, US national champion, Steve Pruett and the Japanese champion, Yasutoshi Sugaya.
SYNOPSIS: The international team event on Sunday (30 November) featured drivers from Great Britain, Japan, Hong Kong, France, the Philippines and Thailand. The karts were push started for a warm-up lap and the race was under way.
Boulineau of France, in Kart number two, took the lead from Doug Spencer of Great Britain in Kart number one. Terry Fullerton, also of Great Britain, and Limnatarax of Thailand, were in early contention.
Fullerton, car number seven, took the lead from the Frenchman. Boulineau went into a spin as the cars passed the stands, leaving Fullerton's British team-mate Doug Spencer in second place.
The British team of Fullerton and Spencer then became locked in a battle for the lead, and it was never in doubt the two would carry off the team trophy - three thousand Hong Kong dollars (U.S. 585 dollars) in prize money.
And it was Terry Fullerton who passed the chequered flag first, with team-mate Doug Spencer a close second.
Team second place went to Sugaya and Asai of Japan and third place to Hong Kong drivers Eddie Lee and Tang Hon Kwong.
