Du­miny hunts fourth spot

The Witness - Wheels - - RACING -

BALLITO-BASED Daniel Du­miny re­turns to Kil­lar­ney keen to el­e­vate him­self from fourth po­si­tion in the 2016 WP high school Ju­nior Max cham­pi­onship chase on Satur­day.

The 15-year-old Du­miny is also in the mid­dle of a hec­tic few weeks’ rac­ing fol­low­ing En­gen Polo Cup ac­tion at Zwartkops two weeks ago, the African Kart­ing Open last week and now its back to Kil­lar­ney.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to a new week­end at Kil­lar­ney,” Daniel said.

“I just hope that no one takes me out again — the Cape Ju­nior Max se­ries is so com­pet­i­tive, so we of­ten end up bang­ing and barg­ing — I just want a clean race to chase those points.”

Daniel sits fourth in the WP ti­tle chase be­hind Ja­son Coet­zee, Dario Busi and Se­bas­tian Boyd, with An­drew Rack­straw and Ai­dan Stry­dom close be­hind.

Last week­end at Zwartkops, the weather gods were just a lit­tle too late to help hand Du­miny an un­likely high school age African Ju­nior Max 125cc Open win. Daniel was in a fight­ing fifth when light rain rolled the dice late in the fi­nal, catch­ing two of the karts ahead out and play­ing the slip­pery track into his hands.

Du­miny closed a four-sec­ond gap down to mere half a sec­ond be­hind the win­ner, Mozam­bi­can Karl Pitzer, in three laps, with fel­low KZN driver Do­minic Lin­coln in sec­ond by the flag.
