Wonder Kid Zac Drives Out the Competition

Last Friday, young Repton Dubai student, Zac Stimpson smashed the Bambino Cup time trial competition at Dubai Kartdrome Outdoor Circuit.

The seven year old surpassed his competitors to come out fastest in all four time trial rounds with a top time of 1:17:027. There were six other 5-8 years olds in his category taking part in the first round of the IAME X-30 challenge, 2017-2018.


The thrillseeker has only been go-karting since April but has always had a passion for cars, especially Ferrari. Zac’s Mother, Nicky attributes his incredible podium finish to his natural flair for racing, his determination to succeed, and partly being able to choose lucky number 19 as his winning kart.


Nicky expressed her pride with an overwhelming joy, “He seems to have a natural talent for driving and has loved cars since he was 2 years old. He was totally determined and gave his very best in every round. Needless to say we are extremely proud of him. We hope it's the first trophy of many!”
