What’s new in 2017 in South African Rotax karting?
Welcome to the 17th running of the South African Rotax Max Challenge series. This highly popular and competitive National series has qualified close to 200 drivers to participate in the Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals on 6 continents and in many different countries. The RMCGF is without question the most prestigious and competitive karting event in the world. Champions from more than 60 countries have to qualify for an invitation to participate – there is no other way, no wild cards or credit cards!
SARMC National racing in 2016 was really strong from the Maxterino 60’s to the DD2s. Well done to our Champions and especially the team for performing so well in Italy – had rain in the prefinals not spoilt most of our drivers chances we would have had more great results. Well done Jayden Els for winning the Mini Max World title in a spectacular fashion – watch this guy’s career in future. Maxterino 8-11, Mini Max 10-13, Junior Max 12-15, Senior Max 14+, DD2 15+ and Masters 32+ will all run South African National Championships in 2017 and Micro Max 7-11 will run on the Regional and National race days as a supporting event but with a big prize – a seat in the 2017 RMCGF Micro Max class!
GAUTENG KARTING CHAMPIONS CROWNED
Wet and rainy conditions failed to put a damper on karting fireworks at the double-points paying the Guy Fawkes Day final round of Northern Regions karting championships on Saturday. Most classes went down to the wire as three drivers stole championships on the day.
KART FINAL FIREWORKS
Motorsport fans can look forward to explosive racing when Vereeniging’s 2016 Northern Regions Finale will see the year’s Gauteng karting titles clinched on Guy Fawkes Day Saturday 5 November. And while some classes tipped on a knife’s edge and others seem a little clear cut, rest assured that the fireworks will be most appropriate in the eighth and final championship round.
CAPE KART CHAMPIONS CROWNED
Jason Coetzee, Dino Stermin, Jonathan Thomas and Joaquin d'Oliveira were crowned 2016 Western Cape Karting Champions at Killarney on Saturday, while Jody van Rensburg and the Visser brothers Charl and Kyle took the three club titles to conclude on the day. Only the Maxterino crown remains to be decided following an outstanding technical enquiry.
