Rotax regionals entertain in splendid Cape Town

Cape Town’s Rotax Max karters had little reprieve with their third regional round just a week after the Zwartkops National. A splendid Cape autumn’s day at Killarney, and some brilliant racing however eased the travel weary field and entertained throughout the day.

Joseph Oelz made DD2 his own with three straight wins over Sebastian Boyd. Delighted Matthew Wadeley was a podium third from Ethan Stier, after Jason Coetzee suffered a day from hell. It was closer in DD2 Masters, where Conor Hughes took two race wins to Jared Jordan’s one from Johan Hamman, Roy Gruer, and Eugene Clark.

It was just another weekend at the races for Charl Visser, who left the rest to play in Senior Max. Of them, Jude Stuart emerged second, followed very closely by Ethan Deacon and Cole Hewetson tied in second, Luca Wehrli, Gabriele Gazzilli and Storm Lanfear.

Keagan Beaumont had to fight final heat winner Jordon Wadeley off to take high school Junior Max honours for the day with Sebastiano Human troubling them all the way to third. Nicholas Lennox, Anwill April and Aiden Beaumont followed.

In primary school action, Max Boshoff beat Michael Danks two heats to one to clinch under 13 Mini Max honours. It was super close behind as only two points separated  Zach McAuley, Ruan Lewis, Zac Hindley and Zac Boshoff in the overall standings for the day.

Honours were also shared in under-11 Micro Max, where Michael O'Mahoney took the opening and final heats, and Liam Wharton the second race win. Jayden vd Merwe meanwhile held Yaqeen Gamieldien, Jake Steyn, and Slater Smith off for third in a tight-day long fight in the mid-pack.

Caleb Lingeveldt gained revenge with a two race to one win on last week’s Zwartkops baby Bambino National winner Radhi Harris. Aleena Doutie kept Ashlyn Beaumont in check for third behind them.

Rotax Max karting now takes a weekend off countrywide, before the next round of the Gauteng regional championships on Saturday 25 May. The Cape karters return to action for a midwinter bout at Killarney on 22 June.
