Karting action at EL Grand Prix

REV IT UP: Ryan Gudmanz won all three heats in the 125cc Clubmans Seniors class, securing first place

There was plenty of excitement at the East London Grand Prix Track last week as Border Karting hosted the third round of their Club Championship.

The day saw fifty racers go head-to-head in a number of different classes.

Jason du Preez dominated the Bambino class with two wins, although it was a hard-fought victory with second-place winner Arabella Krause and third-place Dylan Bezuidenhout only missing out by a hair’s breadth.

The Mini Rok class was won by Redd Scholtz, with Myles Krause coming in second and Traiton Boshoff taking third spot.

Moving on to the 4 Stroke Clubman, the seniors class went to Derek Pratt who won two out of the three heats. Garth van Heerden nabbed second place while Liaan Murray came in third.

Herman Goosen won all three heats in the masters class, securing first place ahead of Charl van Heerden and Aphele Majavu in second and third respectively.

In the 125cc Clubmans class, Ryan Gudmanz won all three heats in the senior class while Jack du Preez won second position and Asthon Nel came back after a two-year hiatus to secure third place.

Last but not least, Jacques du Preez won all three heats in the Rotax DD2 class which earned him the top position while Greg Thompson came in second and Cherne Marais in third.

The next round of the championship is scheduled for July 5.
