Tonyo Carcel shines in Kartzone return

CEBU, Philippines – Juan Antonio “Tonyo” Carcel could not help but be sentimental as he reigned supreme in the 8th leg of the 2011 Kartzone Karting Series at Kartzone over the weekend. 

The 15-year-old Carcel made a good comeback in the national scene and was supposed to race in Clark, Pampanga earlier this month but the event was cancelled due to bad weather.

So that his preparations won't go to waste, Carcel decided to return to Kartzone after three years of missing in action.

Carcel readily made an impact by lording it over in the formula SL experts class.

Peterson Lim came in second followed by Daniel Miranda, Jette Calderon and Panpan Reroma.

“I found it fun that I came back to Kartzone, the track that I grew up in. I started racing here when I was only 10 years old.

This track will forever be in my heart, I will never forget it,” Carcel ended.
