What should have been just a KZN Regional/Club Karting event, was more like a mini national with competitors travelling from Northern Regions and Western Cape to get in some practice before the Idube track closes for the 1st round of the SARMC National in two weeks’ time. But the KZN boys kept the banner flying high, by clinching five overall wins out of six for the day, with Charl Visser from Cape Town taking the Junior Max Class. The weather played havoc with tyre decisions during qualifying as unpredicted rain hung over the track for most of the morning. ...
Rotax have developed a unique events management system which allows organisers to easily check competitors equipment and now boasts the feature of real time communication between organisers, competitors and officials.
The 2018 Rotax Max Northern Regions Karting Championship exploded into action at a dramatic and eventful opening round at the Zwartkops International Kart Track on Saturday with a few surprise results, some expected outcomes and plenty action both on and off the Pretoria racetrack.
Rotax entered the tyre market in 2005 with a hard compound, the durable Mojo D1 tyre for all classes to reduce the tyre costs – a very significant cost in karting. The very successful D2 followed and is still serving Junior Max and the Clubmans classes very well. The premier classes demanded higher performance tyres, thus the quest for good performance and tyre longevity – two things that often seem mutually exclusive – is the ongoing challenge.
The Northern Regions Karting Championship kicks off on the 17th of February 2018 at Zwartkops International Kart Raceway hosted by Rand Kart Club. Close racing is expected across all classes with the possibility of a few upsets with new competitors moving up in the various classes. ...
A new year, a new season, new pits and lots of new karters – that was the scene at the first round of the 2018 Karting Championship season opener at Idube on Sunday.
While it is really very easy to upgrade from Micro Max to Mini Max – only a radiator, ECU and an exhaust are required to complete the upgrade. The initial outlay to upgrade from Maxterino or Mini Rok is significant if you do not own a Rotax engine - we have a very special deal starting right now to solve this problem.
Zwartkops Kart Raceway’s penultimate Northern Regions Kart Championship round delivered a few interesting surprises, most of which served to set up cliffhangers in the various classes’ title races heading into the November finale, while two young ladies showed the gentlemen the way and the Dias family came away smiling after a fine day’s racing.
