The Energy UAE Kart Team driver will take time off his coaching duties in Dubai, where he is actively preparing Energy drivers for the forthcoming UAE Rotax Max Championship, and will take on the cream of international kart drivers in a category in which the likes of Max Verstappen made his name.
Speaking ahead of the weekend France, Babington said: “It’s at the new track inside Le Mans and I’ll be racing with the Energy factory team alongside seven other drivers from Italy, Spain America and Sweden.”
“I’ll be racing under a UAE license and be representing the UAE. I have been competing in the European KZ2 championships but some bad luck with mechanical failures and the odd crash only saw me taking a 6th, 7th, 9th and 11th in the finals after leading and finishing top three in previous heats them weekends,” he explained.
“I had a test last week in Le Mans at the official test for the world championships and we showed great pace so we are looking forward to next week and hope that we can have a good weekend,” added Babington.
