Praga – SA Rok Cup Review

PRAGA DELIVERS AT IDUBE

Praga South Africa enjoyed a successful weekend at iDube as the 2019 SA Rok Cup season came to an end.

Kid Rok:

Praga dominated the Kid Rok class claiming all three podium spots on the day.

Reagile Mailula was the star on the day, qualifying in 3rd place and claiming all three race wins. He took top honours in the overall standings and will be feeling confident about his future in the sport.

Keagan Beaumont had a fantastic day and was a force to be reckoned with. He qualified in 4th place, but didn’t have the best start to the first race, dropping down the field. He worked his way back up 5th. Keagan was in top form in race two and found himself challenging for the lead. He eventually ended 2nd. He took another second place finish in the final race, to end the day tied 2nd in the overall results.

Luke Hill qualified on pole and finished the first heat in 2nd place. He spent the heat embroiled in a race long battle for 2nd, but crossed the line 3rd, giving Praga a 1-2-3 finish. Race three saw much of the same and Luke again crossed the line 3rd. He ended the day tied for 2nd.

Troy van der Laan found his “feet” at iDube and was very competitive. He qualified 5th and finished the first race in 4th place. Troy lost a bit of ground in race two, finishing 8th. He recovered to 5th in the final heat and took 5th in the overall standings.

Goran Gruben looked good on track, qualifying 7th and holding the position to the finish line. He took another 7th place finish in race two, but was unable to start the final heat. He ended the day 9th overall.

Tyler Repsold was struck by technical maladies, only finishing one heat. He started heat one from 12th and had a good race, working his way up to 9th place.

Mini Rok:

KC Ensor-Smith proved his pace by qualifying on the 2nd row of the grid and taking the race one win. He finished 2nd in race two and although he crossed the line 4th in the final heat, he received a nose cone penalty which dropped him to 5th. KC finished 2nd in the overall results.

Luke Hill enjoy some hard racing, qualifying 16th and finishing heat one in 15th, despite a nose cone penalty. He claimed 14th place in both remaining heats, ending the day 15th overall, but 3rd in the under 10 division.

Tyler Robinson had a good first outing in Mini Rok, qualifying 24th and making up two places in the first race. She crossed the line in 23rd in race two and had a really good final heat getting up to 20th. Tyler took 22nd in the overall standings for the day.

Ashton Repsold qualified 22nd, but was unable to finish the first race. He raced to 25th in heat two and a solid drive saw him finish 21st in the final race. Ashton finished 25th overall in the highly competitive class.

OKJ:

It just wasn’t meant to be for Jarrod Waberski. He qualified on the second row of the grid, but some pushing in the first race saw him drop down to 6th. He had an epic second heat, spending all race embroiled in a three kart fight for 2nd. He finished 4th. After being pushed out of the train at the start of the final heat, Jarrod made up four positions to cross the line 7th.

Taya van der Laan had a good day. She qualified 12th and held this position to the flag in race one. She got into the top ten in both remaining heats and in the overall standings.

Whilst championship points have not yet been ratified by MSA, Luke Hill has unofficially won both the South African Kid Rok and the under 10 SA Mini Rok Championships.
