Passion, discipline and humility helped Selborne College Grade 11 pupil Brady Choudree to win the Border Karting Clubmans 4 Stroke Class A championship last Saturday.
“It was fantastic to win and I had built up a safe 70 point l e a d ,” Choudree said. “I came in fourth place in the Clubmans 4 Stroke Class B 125cc, which is awesome as I was tussling with two guys so it was tough.”
Choudree races for GBB Racing in the 125cc Clubmans class, which has four other drivers under their wing. GBB Racing is a new team formed between Gary Marias, Bruce Bulter (of GB Service and Fitment Centre) and Dr Bevan Choudree, Brady’s father.
GB Service and Fitment Centre were also the sponsors for the 4 Stroke Clubmans and the academy.
In addition to karting, Choudree is also a motorsport car driver, having competed in the Border Regional Championships throughout the year.
Starting at Class E and F, he quickly moved up to Class D modifieds, racing in a Golf.
“I was battling Cameron Hall in Class D. Due to my consistency, I came in second place overall and also received the second highest points over all the classes this year,” Choudree said.
The young champion said he had learned to trust himself and the people around him more through his motorsport racing, as well as when to push himself and also to hold back.
His mom, Tracy, said she was nervous when he first started competing.
“He has all the safety features needed as he races and the rest we have put in God’s hands. We have been blessed all in all,” she said.
Tracy added that her son had so far managed to successfully juggle his academics alongside his extra curricular activities.
Choudree was recently chosen as Selborne headboy for 2020.
“My phone has never blown up like the day of the headboy announcement with congratulatory messages. “We have a great student body,” Choudree said.
