RS KART TEAM TO TACKLE ZWARTKOPS FINALE HEAD ON
The final round of the 2020 National and Northern Regions Rok Cup will take place at Zwartkops Raceway this weekend (12 December) and RS Kart will field their biggest entry to date with 7 drivers competing on Saturday.
The Bambino class, which normally runs in the Rotax series, will be racing with the Rok categories this weekend. Maddox Mason will be representing the team and will be filled with confidence after finishing in second place overall in last weekend’s race.
Three up-and-coming drivers will be flying the RS Kart flag in Kid Rok.
Troy van der Laan has taken three race wins this season and will be looking to add to his tally this weekend. Troy is in third place in the National championship, only three points behind the leader. The championship is still up for grabs and Troy is definitely in the running. In terms of the Northern Regions championship, Troy is tied in second place and will be in looking to secure this position.
Mattao Mason is the newly crowned 2020 Northern Regions Bambino Champion and will still be riding the crest of this wave as he tackles Kid Rok this weekend. The youngster is currently sixth in both the national and regional standings.
Ewan Venter will be making his Kid Rok debut, after a successful entry into motorsport this year in Bambinos. He will be testing out the bigger kart as the team makes placement decisions for 2021.
Luke Hill is tied in sixth position in the National Mini Rok Championship and is currently in a very impressive fourth place in the Northern Regions standings. He will be looking to increase his podium count and finish the season on a high note. Luke is second in the National and leads the Regional under-10 division championship and will be focused on adding these titles to his name.
Kegan Martin will be trying his hand at Mini Rok on Saturday. He had a rollercoaster of a race day in Rotax last Saturday and will be hoping for some better luck in the Rok season finale. Kegan is a driver to keep an eye one and he definitely has the pace to run at the sharp end of this very competitive field.
Carlo Olivier will be in action this weekend in the KZ2 class. He is 12th in the National standings, despite missing the KZN round in November due to exams. Carlo is tenth in the Northern Regions points table and will be looking to improve on this position. Carlo’s last outing in this class was back in September, but there is no doubt he will settle back into the kart with ease.
