Hello my name is Jakub Fitzsimmons, I'm Australian and currently live in Dubai. I'm 13 years old and love racing go karts in Dubai and my biggest dream is to win the 2016-2017 Championship.
Name: Jakub Fitzsimmons
Birth: July 12th 2003
Language: English, Arabic Begginer, French Begginer.
Why I'm Raising Funds
I'm trying to raise much needed funds because currently the equipment l'm using to challenge the championship with at this level cannot achieve the good placings needed to achieve my dream of winning the championship or becoming a successful racer. So hopefully when l can raise enough funds with your much needed support, l will upgrade my old engine and numerous spare parts required to maintain the go kart with my dad, such as spare axes, spare steering hubs, spare carburator and much more parts.
How I started
I started racing at the begining of January 2015 in the Sodi World Series (SWS) and l achieved 9 poduims and I finished 6th overall in Dubai, achieveing a placing of 64th worldwide within the championship. This year l'm currently 4th overall in Dubai and 54th worldwide, as l'm trying to improve my performance within each race.
On Christmas 2015 my parents bought me a Mini Max Go Kart to start racing within the UAE Rotax Max Challenge. When I did my first race in Dubai I acheievd a placing of 8th. Since then I have raced in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain. On the Al Ain race day, I did really well and nearly achieved 5th, but then on the last race of the day, we changed the setup on the go kart and I managed to achieved an 8th placing. Unfortuantely I retired 2 times because my chain came off. Even though I don't have a team or mechanics to fine tune my kart as many other competitors do, l'm learning to repair and manage my go kart with my Dad and improving my performance and knowledge with every race. Numerous people who have seen me race have given me positive feedback of my driving skills and performance which encourages me to continue with my dream.
