Saturday will see the penultimate round of the Border Karting season for 2019 take place at East London Grand Prix Circuit.

Caleb Odendaal, with a comfortable pole position ahead of Lincoln Randall and Traiton Boshoff in the Bambino class is unlikely to be overhauled in the points race. Odendaal has come off a successful national season where he finished fifth overall.

In the Mini Rok Class Jordan van der Merwe leads Redd Scholtz by 42 points.

A, although Scholtz has been showing some good form of late, the points deficit will be very difficult to close.

The Micro Max class has Caleb Odendaal and Tyler Stephen jointly in first place, and this competition will go down to the wire. Scott Heideman is in a comfortable third spot.

Class B Clubmans lead is a battle between Queens College scholars, Ryan Gudmanz and Kyle Heideman, with just 17 points separating them. Duwayne Venter is in third place, but just two points behind him is Jaime Schaefer.

The Senior Clubmans Class A is headed by Geoff Stephen with a comfortable 52-point lead, but Jared de Kock and Keagan Rhind in second and third respectively, are only separated by four points.

In the Clubmans 4 Stroke Class A, Leeroy Randall in second place, finds himself sandwiched between the Choudree brothers, with Brady having a healthy 47-point lead and Bryce finding himself 41 points adrift of Randall.

Class B leader, Jayson Collins, has a healthy points advantage over Junay de Kock, who is fighting off the efforts of a determined Khazimla Majavu in third place.

Taitum Hansen, Juan Venter and Tyla Griffiths are the front-runners in the Academy Demo class.

Racing starts starts at 12pm. Entrance is R10 with food and refreshments available.
