Kid Rok, Mini Rok and OKJ categories have reached mid point of the season after the last National Round held in Port Elizabeth with Gp125’s 2nd round due in Cape Town on the 22nd of June.

The driver championships could not be closer contested. In Kid ROK Luke Hill is currently heading up the championship ladder followed by Aadam Kajee and Luan Mostert. Next round will be in Mostert’s back yard so expect him to close up on some championship points.

In Mini ROK its still anyone’s prize with the top 3 separated by 5 points. Muhammad Wally leads over Nic Roos but the next round on Cape Town circuit, Killarney, will be very Familiar to 3rd place man Lucas Royston. It might be mid winter by the time of the event but the racing will for sure be hot on circuit.

Together with Mini Rok, OKJ is once again proving to be one of South Africa’s toughest and most competitive classes. At the halfway mark of the championship 1 point separates the top 3 contenders. After a tough outing in Port Elizabeth, Leyton Fourie still managed to hang onto the top spot ahead of Mokoena and Coertze.

In the race for the 2019 FiA Academy seat it will be a tight affair between Bishop and Visser with the next round being at both their home circuit, but don’t discount 3rd man in line Josh Le Roux.

In terms of the seat for the ROK Cup Super Final in Super ROK Charl Visser is leading the challenge but 2nd place man Joseph Elirine is not far behind. This one could come down to the last round. Cameron Kelly made a welcome return to National Karting in Port Elizabeth and hope to see him in Cape Town defending 3rd place and clawing his way up to 2nd.

Cape Town will be the first away leg for the GP125 – 6 speed gearbox class in their National championship. Undoubtedly the fastest short circuit karting class in South Africa will wow the Cape Town crowds. Scot Falconer leads the pack ahead Dominic Diaz and Kyle Mitchel. There will also be a tough battle between 10th and 11th placed ladies Fabienne Lanz and Rochelle du Plesies for top honers in the championship table.
