Young karters’ first of­fi­cial race meet

The Witness - Wheels - - RACING - STU­ART JOHN­STON

THE first of­fi­cial race meet­ing for the new Mi­cro Max and Mini Max kart­ing classes will be held at the Vereenig­ing Kart Cir­cuit on Sun­day.

The Mini Max-Mi­cro Max Grand Prix race meet­ing will be open only to driv­ers us­ing the Ro­tax 125 cc en­gine used in classes for older young­sters, but with radically re­duced power out­puts to suit the younger age groups.

The Mi­cro Max en­gines pro­duce 6 kW, while the Mini Max en­gines are lim­ited to 11 kW.

The stag­ing of the Mini Max Mi­cro Max Grand Prix fol­lows on the fourth round of the SA Ro­tax Max Chal­lenge Na­tional Kart­ing Se­ries, which is be­ing held at the Vereenig­ing Kart Cir­cuit on Satur­day. This has en­abled many young­sters con­test­ing the cur­rent na­tional cham­pi­onship classes for Max­terino and Mini Rok classes to stay on an ex­tra day to con­test the grand prix.

Strong en­try lists have been reMOTORBIKES ceived for both classes, with over a dozen young driv­ers sched­uled to con­test each di­vi­sion.

The in­cen­tive to do well is huge, as winners of each of the classes re­ceive ei­ther an air ticket to the Ro­tax Grand Fi­nals in Palermo, Italy, in Oc­to­ber, or a voucher worth R10 000 to buy kart­ing good­ies at EMR Kart­ing.
