The Prokart SSS Club will be hosting Africa’s first and only Premiere 24 Hour Endurance Karting event on 1st and 2nd December 2018.
This prestigious event will be held at Laserfiche Raceway over the 2 days and the entire event will be professionally streamed live, together with professional commentary throughout the 24 Hours from Greg Moloney (The Voice of Choice) and his wonderful team. There will also be team and driver interviews in the commentary box, a live camera roaming the pits, sponsor interviews, live timing and more. There will be great racing lined up for all drivers and great entertainment planned for all visitors to the track. There are limited grid slots available for entries. Only 45 lucky teams will compete in this Premiere event. The event is open to anyone, provided you have the required equipment and drivers to partake, and if you do not, then there will be motors and race spec karts for hire and drivers can be arranged for teams who are looking.
The Prokart Africa 24 Hour Endurance event is the first of its kind in Africa and will showcase what South Africa has to offer in the Four Stroke karting category. South African karters have often saved up a lot of money to attend similar events across our borders, like the Dubai 24 Hour, attended by Formula 1 greats like Fernando Alonso amongst others. Worldwide, 24 Hour Endurance Karting is very popular, there’s the Spa 24 Hour in Belgium, the 24 Hour Le Mans Karting in France, the 24 Hours of America and many more. You could budget from at least R15000 per driver to partake in such events! It’s time that we invited the world to come and participate in our own Africa 24 Hour Endurance. The organisation and level of competition will be first class and with our sponsors on board, it is definitely something to put on your bucket list.
Laserfiche Raceway has hosted many successful 12 hour races over the last 20 years that Prokart SSS Club has been in operation. The thrill of racing through the night, watching your competitors to see when they make their pitstops, strategizing over who in your team is going to drive next and how much fuel you’re going to put in at your next pit stop to give you that competitive edge is what Prokart SSS is all about. The Prokart SSS Endurance class Technical Rules and Regulations will be used for this event, running Honda GX390 motors. If you have a GX390 motor that is not within the Prokart Specifications, you can take it to 4Strokeworkshop to have it configured to the right spec.
The event will be raising funds for the Catherine Robson Children’s home in Vereeniging. The 12 Hour race held in 2017 contributed over R70000 to this charity in club (R25k) and private (R45k) donations and we wish to increase that contribution this year.
Sponsors who wish to participate and be part of this historic race can contact the club on email: [email protected] . There are many sponsorship packages expertly put together by our marketing team for sponsors to get onboard and get maximum exposure.
So, if you have ever wondered what it would be like to compete at Le Mans, or even just go head to head against other drivers of your skill level, this is the closest you are going to get to it in local endurance motorsport on a budget. The Prokart Super Single Endurance Kart Series is without doubt the most affordable series in the country. To find out more about entering the Prokart Africa 24 Hour Endurance Race, CLICK HERE.
