Round 3 held at Zwartkops Kart Circuit has come and gone with some fantastic results to boot. We would like to thank AF Fans for the sponsorship, we all really appreciate your contribution to the Zwartkops day and we encourage you to please give them a follow on Facebook and show some support. Also thank you to all race officials and marshals who once again made it possible to run the day as smoothly as it did.
The championship tables have been updated and there’s still no clear indications of who is going to take top honours this year. Looking at the close racing and exciting checkered flag finishes, the next 6 rounds are going to be something to watch.
We welcome all the new teams we saw on Sunday. Endurance class welcomes Limping Pistons who have made a comeback to practice for the big 24 Hour event and Speed Monkeys who put up a great result for their first race too. Sprint 390 also welcomes Senna Racing, Mid Life Crisis, Gladiator, Christiaan van Wyk and Stewart Racing. The Midgets welcome Tyron Roberts who also showed a great result for his first outing with Prokarts this season. Welcome to all and well done on reaching the checkered flag!
