Senior Max - Luke Herring

Luke Herring is another of those karters who looks totally composed behind the wheel of a race machine. The Cape Town-based 20-year-old matriculated at Parklands College of Education in 2015, while his karting career began when he was a mere five-years-old.

Known as “Hurricane Herring” in karting circles, he has to date won four South African karting Championships, 10 Western Province Regional titles, and also the Africa Open challenge. He has also represented South Africa in three Rotax Grand Finals, and also competed in other championships in Europe.

Luke says he loves the format of Rotax karting, where National races and some regional events all count towards the overall championships. “The World Grand Final is a great prize to aim for,” says Luke, “ as you will be competing against hundreds of other karters who are all champions in their countries. So even if you don’t win, you come away with so much experience and knowledge!”

Luke takes his karting and fitness extremely seriously, working out with a personal trainer at 5.30 am each day. His second passion is wakeboarding, while his favourite food is sushi!
