South Aussie Set For World Championship Start

South Australian Josh Tynan will next week jet out for the biggest event of his karting career when he heads to France to compete in the CIK-FIA World KF Championship.

In doing so, he will live out a lifelong dream of competing with a factory karting team in Europe when he lines up with the Energy Corse outfit.

"Ever since I started racing almost 15 years ago, I have always dreamt of racing as a part of a factory team in Europe and now that dream is only days away from becoming a reality," said Tynan. "This year has been the biggest in my karting career, I won a round of the CIK Stars of Karting Championship on debut and now I’m heading overseas to take on the world’s best drivers." The 26 year-old self-employed tiler will become the first driver from the Festival State in more than two decades to compete at the highest level of the sport.

"This opportunity is proof to me that you should never give up on your dreams and work hard to achieve them," said Tynan.

"I was given the opportunity to compete at my home round of the CIK Stars of Karting Championship earlier this year by Energy Corse Australia and since then it has opened up this opportunity for me. "I’ve been working hard to ensure I’m prepared physically for the event, now it’s time to put on the best performance possible on the world stage."

While aiming for a top result, Tynan is realistic about the chances of emulating fellow Australian James Courtney who won the World Karting Championship in 1995 and 1997.

"I’m going to the event with a very open mind. I’ll be aiming to learn as much as possible while I’m over there and take it all in," said Tynan.

"Certainly it would be good to finish high in the field but there will be more than 70 of the best drivers from all around the world there. My number one priority will be to make the cut for the final where only the top 34 drivers from the qualifying heats get to race. "I really just want to perform to the best of my ability and see where that puts me against the world’s best."

Tynan says that the opportunity wouldn’t be possible without the ongoing support of his family and Adam Graham of Energy Corse Australia.

"A lot of people think that motorsport is an sport of individuals, but without the support of a good team around you it is very hard to succeed," said Tynan.

"I’ve been very fortunate over the years to have the support of my family being as dedicated as what I am to succeed in karting. None of the opportunities that I’ve had would be possible without the support of them, or of more recent times Adam either."

Tynan will take to the Essay circuit in France for the first time in practice on Thursday September 18 before qualifying and the racing is contested across September 19-21. A total of 75 entries from 22 different countries will be in action.
