DVS set to become South Africa’s Premier Karting class

DVS was launched mid 2017 as an experimental class with most of the testing and races held in Cape Town. From the word go, the motors proved very evenly matched, as well as extremely fast and powerful. Adopting the same DNA as the newly homologated OK series by the CIK, these motors are very simple to use and maintain, due to the elimination of electronics, internal water pumps and clutches. The result is a much lighter and compact motor that can be maintained at a very low budget.

2018 promises to be the breakthrough year for the DVS class, with many of the country’s top senior drivers opting to take part in the ROK Cup SA championship in the DVS class, with the aim of winning the ultimate prize to Lonato, Italy, come October.

DVS will be based on the same concept as the already successful MSA Academy and will run as follows on race weekends:

  • Motors are issued by ballot on Friday of the race
  • 1 Set of Race tyres is allowed
  • 1 Set of New Practice tyres is allowed on Friday
  • Motors are sealed units and are issued and maintained by the organizers
  • Competing in 5 Rounds secures your Wild Card seat at the 2018 International ROK Finals.

Costs:

  • Rental package:
    • R8 500.00 excl. VAT per event
    • This includes the following:
      • Motor Rental – Complete unit – Motor, Exhaust, Carb, Air box.

  • Purchase package:

      • This motor can be used for practice days or alternatively placed into the Organizers motor pool.
      • A R1 800.00 service fee per race is payable and the motor is returned after the season to the owner.
      • Motors are refreshed and serviced after every race.
      • Should buying a pool motor be your preference please contact us, and we can prepare a full proposal for the season.
    • Motors for additional practice can also be leased for the season.

Racing will kick off on 10 March at Laserfiche Raceway in Vereeniging, together with the rest of the ROK classes and the well supported GP 125 Shifter regional class.
