Regional RND 5 Vereeniging 01 September 3, 2018

Round 5 of the Northern Regions Regional saw Team Target Racing kids racing at the Vereeniging Kart Circuit on the 1st of September.

First on the list was the Rotax Senior Category with Luvuyo Mobwano taking up the pace up a notch by inching closer to the front Runners as he gained .1 towards them each heat , with his theoretical time matching their times.
This is a first for Luvuyo. Starting karting only end of December 2017 , competing against drivers who race up to 10 years already, he has impressed immensely this weekend, well done!

Next up on the list for the day’s racing was the Rotax Micro Category. Target Racing had a little army of kids out in force with Kent Swartz leading Wian Boshoff in the front pack mix for most of the weekend. The two making a good pack between each other as they slice their way one by one to the front of the field. Then there are the two brothers Mahlori Mothlabani and Ntiyiso Mabunda which have started karting just this year in January. Both boys have picked up the pace in leaps and bounds and this was their first Regional Race at Vereeniging Race track, their second race of their Motorsport Karting Career.

Qualifying was not the best of the kids, but as the day unfolded, each of them picked up the pace and started carving away one position at a time, with Kent Swartz finishing in the top 5 and Wian Boshoff just outside the top 5 and resulted in a 4th Overall for Kent Swartz, his best Regional Finish ; Wian Boshoff in 10th; Ntiyiso Mabunda 12th and Mahlori Mothlabani in 13th.

Target Racing’s little feisty Aadam Kajee raced in the Bambino category where he had his hands full in the first heat as he fell back from 2nd all the way down to 5th position and had to work his way up the field again and despite the difficulty to overtake “wide kart” Jacobs, the two muscled for most of the race and Aadam Kajee managed to slip passed and took 2nd for the first heat.
The second and third heat Aadam missed 2nd place by .1 of a second as the drivers crossed the line neck on neck . He got third position overall for the day.
