SOUTH AFRICAN ROTAX MAX CHALLENGE KARTING CHAMPIONSHIP 2015 ROUND TWO – VEREENIGING, SATURDAY, JULY 4.
Karters from nearly every major region in South Africa will fight out the second round of the South African Rotax Max Challenge at Vereeniging this Saturday, July 4, 2015.
The big news in the top-flight Rotax DD2 Gearbox class is that Benjamin Habig from KZN is making a welcome return after an injury sustained in a school sporting event kept him out of the first round of the SARMC held in Cape Town in April. Habig, son of multiple South African rally champion Jan Habig, is one of the strong favourites to take the DD2 title this year after coming oh-so-close in 2014. The good news is that karters can effectively count their best results over the four-round championship, effectively dropping one of the rounds, so Habig is very much in the fight.
FRAUGHT KART ACTION IN PERFECT CAPE
A perfect day witnessed fraught action as the third round of the Western Province Karting championship went down at Killarney on Saturday.
TRIPLES AT THE TRIANGLE
A fresh, bright Vaal Triangle morning greeted the Northern Regions karters at Vereeniging on Saturday, but the cool soon made way to red hot racing as the fourth round of the Gauteng championship got under way on a day that saw several drivers dominate with triple wins on the day.
