DIAS DOES SOUTH AFRICA PROUD

The Witness - Wheels - - RACING -

CAMERON Dias, an 11- year- old karter from Vereeniging, took part in an in­vi­ta­tional Mini Max race at the re­cent 2015 Ro­tax Max Chal­lenge Grand Fi­nals, held at Por­ti­mao, on the Al­garve coast of Por­tu­gal.

Al­though she had never seen the cir­cuit be­fore and was up against top lo­cal Por­tuguese and Span­ish driv­ers to­talling a field of some 35 driv­ers, Cameron, rac­ing as a Por­tuguese na­tional, did South Africa proud by fin­ish­ing fourth.

Cameron was on hand to try the new Mi­cro Max en­gine at the demon­stra­tion run on home soil at Zwartkops in Jan­uary and nat­u­rally was highly com­pli­men­tary about the prospect of both Mi­cro max and the Mini Max classes com­ing to South Africa.
