Duminy hunts fourth spot
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.
