Rand Kart Club. Last rounds for Gauteng karters
KZN’s karters will be closley watching the weekend’s racing at Zwartkops where the Vortex Rok and IAME X30 class titles will be decided.
With six Gauteng champions already crowned in the Rotax Max classes, just the final three titles are up for grabs, with NR Maxterino champion Kwanda Mokoena (FA Kart) and newly crowned SA national Mini Rok champion Altan Bouw (Zanardi are separated by just a point gong into the finale in the primary school 60 cc Mini Rok class.
Jordan North (Kosmic) meanwhile has a handy championship lead in the high school Junior Rok championship chase and he just has to finish to wrap up the high school Junior Rok 125 cc title.
Behind him the likes of Dylan Seely, Michael Pringle, Luca Munaretto, Andrea White and Oliver Gunner will get a chance to tussle, although last week’s Junior Rok World Championship runner-up Stuart White may pitch up to rain on everyone’s parade.
Nathan Parkins (Kosmic) is another driver fresh from World Championship success, but he has a handy title advantage in the IAME X30 shifter class, where he will need to keep an eye on the likes of Connor Rogers, Elruco du Plessis and Jason Smith while reeling off those laps.
Saturday’s programme also includes club rounds for the Cadet, Maxterino, DD2, 125 GP and Clubmans classes, all of whom will race for the sake of racing.—
