Dramatic iDube National
The dramatic iDube circuit outside Pietermaritzburg once again emphasised the enormous wealth of driving talent that exists in the SA Rotax Max Challenge National karting series. iDube is a take-no-prisoners venue, rewarding speed and race-craft, while punishing mistakes, thanks to its unique hillside location. When the sun set on Round Three of the 2016 Rotax Max Challenge National Karting Championship on June 18 this past weekend, the lasting impression was one of admiration for the talent that was show-cased in all the highly-contested National Championship karting classes.
In Maxterino there were huge dices in all three races for the lead between Kwanda Mokoena, Charl Visser and Troy Dolinschek. None of these three established any sort of ascendancy, with the result of each race coming after countless passing and re-passing manoeuvres between this trio. At day’s end, Cape Town’s Charl Visser ended up the winner with a second and two wins to Kwanda Mokoena’s first race win, followed by a second and a third. Troy Dolinschek was third overall after an extremely impressive final race that saw him just edged into second. Behind these were the equally inspired Jordan Brooks, Joshua de Paiva and Tate Bishop.
