Sri Lanka’s Eshan Peiris and Yevan David failed to progress to the final of the Rotamax Challenge Trophy International Karting Championship, which was held in Italy last weekend. 

Eshan Peiris finished the First Leg at 18th to successfully reach the next stage, but could not proceed after facing an accident. He was degraded to the 31st position in the pole start in the Third Leg, after missing the second qualifier. Experienced Eshan maneuvered his machine from 31st to finish 22nd at the end of the semi-final round, but failed to qualify for the final. 

Yevan had two unimpressive rounds — finishing 25th in the first and 32nd in the second — but fought back strongly to finish 17th in the third round. He finished 16th in the semi-final round, and failed to reach the final as his compatriot Eshan.
