The Rotax African Open event 2017

african open 2017The seventh Rotax Africa Open event will be held at Zwartkops International Kart Raceway on Sunday the 20th of August 2017. Competitors from Angola, Kenya, Mozambique, etc. are expected to join the South Africans in the days racing!

The organizers have chosen this date – the day after a Northern Regions Championship race meeting to give the out of town competitors an opportunity to get some racing experience on the Saturday with the locals on Zwartkops and reduce the “home town advantage”. National Championship competitors from out of town will also benefit by doing these events knowing that the National final is a month later at Zwartkops!

The Rotax Africa Open format is a “winner takes all” where only the final race determines the winner. Prizes include all important invitations to the Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals in Junior, Senior, DD2 and DD2 Masters classes and air tickets for dad and son to the winners of Micro Max and Mini Max!

Invitations to race in the RMCGF – this year in Algarve Portugal, where national karting champions from all over the world are given free use of brand new and identical engines, chassis, tyres, fuel, tools, trolleys, etc. and free entry – are one of the most sought after awards in the world of karting. The number of entries awarded to a region (in this case sub-Saharan Africa and South Africa) is determined by the number of participants racing in Rotax events. For this reason, we will go out of our way to attract competitors from other karting classes as well to fit a Rotax and participate in this week-ends events. Attractive rental options will be available where a new or used Rotax engine of your choice will be available at a very reasonable price.
