Boyd keen to exercise home advantage

Camps Bay Junior Max kart racer Sebastian Boyd is hell bent on making a mark at his hometown national races at Killarney Saturday 29 April. Boyd, who was in dominant form despite a really tough day at the office up at the Vereeniging national opener in March and then cleaned up at the last Cape regional, will want to go all the way next week.

“Vereeniging started very well for us,” the Capetonian Boyd Boas Freight Kosmic driver admitted. “I was on pole and won the first race, but then it got a bit ugly and we ended up third for the day. “So the plan is to try and find the same pace again and to be more consistent - we are racing at home so there should be no excuses, but I know it’s going to be tough again this weekend.”

SACS College Grade 9 scholar Boyd, who has also been racing overseas this year, expects his international experience to help him at home. “I have learned so much racing in Europe in 33-kart fields separated by tenths of a second — it really is tough over there where we have four or five really competitive karts racing, they have 30 - so I'm hoping that toughness I have learned pays off, so I am really looking forward to the weekend!”
