Young karters’ first official race meet
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.
