Fierce karting action at Killarney this weekend

2016-05-17 06:00

The 2016 Western Cape Karting Championship explodes back into action at Killarney after a two and a half month break on Saturday, with leading local racers keen to reassert their authority, as much as their rivals will be out to stop those winning ways.

Nowhere will the action be fiercer than in the high school Rotax Junior Max 125s, where a full grid and perhaps a little unfinished business could make the action all that much sweeter.

WP champion Jason Coetzee (RKT Kosmic) will be keen to extend his Cape championship advantage over national series leader Sebastian Boyd (Boyd Freight Kosmic) and the man Coetzee controversially tangled with at the Killarney national, Dario Busi (Automan Birel).

Never ignore Daniel Duminy (Kosmic) who is out to score his first Cape regional win, Andrew Rackstraw (Tony), Aidan Strydom (TurboTech CRG) and Kosmic trio JP Hamman, Sam Lockhoff and Simon Simpson-Heath (SAKRA Kosmic) among that lot, and rest assured that this class will deliver extreme action in each of its three heats.

The smallest karters are the under eight cadet class kids, the breeding ground of future race champions, and there you can expect the likes of Joaquin de Oliveira, Reza Levy (Jive), Paul Malcolm, Reese Koorzen, Joshua Smit and Ethan Stier to be among the leading bunch.

V Adult entry is R60 per adult. R20 for under-16s and under-12s are free.
