Praga – NR Rok Cup Preview

Praga

The Northern Regions Rok Cup is heating up and the penultimate round of the championship is expected to produce some exciting racing at Zwartkops on Saturday 28 September 2019.

Praga have a strong line-up of drivers for this event and will definitely be a force to be reckoned with. This will be particularly true in Kid Rok, where Praga will field six entries.

Kid Rok:

Reagile Mailula has put in some impressive drives and finds himself challenging for the championship lead. He goes into this round in 2nd place, with a 6 point deficit to the leader. Reagile will, however, also need to defend his position from teammate, Luke Hill.

Luke is 3rd in the points table, just one point behind Reagile. The fight between these two youngsters is going to go to the line.

Slightly further behind, is Goran Gruben. He has taken three podium finishes this season and will be looking to add to this tally. Goran is 4th in the championship, with everything still to play for.

Keagan Beaumont had a particularly good round at iDube, claiming two second place finishes. His results have put him 6th in the point’s standings, marginally ahead of Tyler Repsold.

Tyler has had a few challenging races, but always bounces back. He is 13 points behind Keagan and will be driving hard to close this gap.

Troy van der Laan only joined the class in May, missing out on the first two rounds of the championship. He will be using the remainder of the 2019 season to prepare for a championship charge next year.

Mini Rok:

KC Ensor-Smith has been exceptionally strong this season and has already taken 5 race wins and a total of 10 podium finishes. The class is, however, particularly competitive and despite his great results, KC is only 3rd in the championship standings. KC needs to make up 7 points to move up to second place.  

Luke Hill will also be racing in Mini Rok. Although he is focused on the under 10 division, he finds himself 11th in the overall standings, which is quite remarkable given that this is his first season in Mini Rok and he is one of the youngest drivers in the field. A good result this weekend, could elevate him to 9th.

OKJ:

Jarrod Waberski is 4th in the OKJ championship and although there are fairly sizable point gaps between the top four drivers, the championship is far from over. Jarrod will be focused on claiming podium finishes this weekend and maximising his point’s haul.

Alessio Angelucci is raring to go after a two month break and will be looking forward to getting back behind the wheel of his Praga.

Taya van der Laan will round out the team’s entries as she continues to grow in pace and confidence in the class.
