The First ever Prokart Africa 24 Hour Endurance race was a huge success. Thank you to all that participated and helped make this a truly memorable event and setting the scene for future 24 Hour races to come.
We have had a massive interest in our event from different 4 Stroke clubs around the world and the support has been tremendous from them. The British 24 Hour race being held in August next year is the one that stands out since the winner receives a prize that includes free entry and accommodation for 4 drivers. The SEK championship in Australia has also extended an invite to our club for their 24 Hour event taking place on 5th October 2019. More information to follow.
This event was broadcast live for the full 24 hours and the content was well received by all that watched and commented on the live feed. Greg Moloney and the team did a fantastic job to keep abreast of what was happening on and off the track throughout the race. The timekeepers, C.o.C, race officials, volunteers, fuel marshals, scrutineers and all background staff worked tirelessly to ensure all ran smoothly, with some putting in a 32 Hour day. The club thanks all of you for helping make this momentous occasion a success. Click here to follow the Prokart Africa 24 Hour Facebook page and view the live broadcasts.
