Rotax Max battles return to Killarney

It seems an eternity since the second round of the Western Province Rotax Max Challenge karting championship sneaked in to deliver great racing just before Lockdown struck back in March, but Saturday 15 August will finally see the province’s karters being the first in the Cape to race again, when round 3 goes down at the Killarney Kart Track.
The meeting will however be run with all MSA lockdown protocols enforced, social distancing enforced throughout, face masks worn at all times and no spectators allowed, among other measures, not that any of that will make an iota of difference out on track.
Expect Sebastian Boyd and Jason Coetzee to keep on fighting the premier gearbox class DD2, while the over-30s DD2 Masters madalas promise more spectacular racing, if the last race is anything to go by. Jason Greyling, Roy Gruer, Connor Hughes, Andrew Thomas and Jacques de Bruyn should all be back and fighting with Jared and Michael Jordan, Robert Peche and Andre Steenkamp all in the mix too. 
Coetzee leads Senior
Senior Max is another Cape Rotax melting pot, where Tate Bishop, Jason Coetzee, Charl Visser and Kai van Zijl look set to fight it out, while Troy Dolinschek and Kyle Visser will have upstart young guns Reza Levy, Paul Malcolm, Andre and Kyle le Riche and Matthew Wadeley, to deal with in the testosterone wrought under-15 Junior Max races. 
Levy took Mini Max
Primary school action will see Jason MacBeath taking Reza Levy, Ethan Stier, Joshua Smit, Ethan Deacon, Jude Stuart, Paul Malcolm and Guido Bidoli in under-13 Mini Max, while Joshua Smit has waited six months to once again try topple Reese Koorzen in under-11 Micro Max. Jordon Wadeley, Keagan Beaumont, Eric Norman, Sabelo Ntuli and Dale Hobbs are all likely to prove competitive there, too.  
Van Rensburg took Bambino
A huge field of baby Bambinos will be out to stop the so far dominant Kai van Rensburg, with Mattao Mason, Aiden Beaumont, Siyabonga Ntuli, Matthew Roach, John Norman, Sebastiano Human, Liam Wharton, Zack McAuley, Michael Danks, Riley Stier, Rebecca Wadeley and Maddox Mason all obviously itching to get out and racing again after that huge six month pause.
The weekend is also crucial to several drivers’ national championship preparations, with the opening round of the South African Rotax Max Challenge following at iDube in KZN a week anon, and a good result this weekend will go a long way to arriving there on the front foot. For now however, it's all eyes on Killarney and the best possible results as the WP series approaches its somewhat delayed mid-season.
This is where we’d normally tell you where to go to watch and all about the great food and the rest at Killarney, but sadly no spectators are allowed under lockdown measures, so watch this space for results and info this weekend and going forward as the Cape’s Rotax Max karting gang blasts back into flat out action.
