HARARE – Zac Dufty is looking forward to racing at the third round of the South African Northern Regions Kart Championships at Zwartkops Raceway in Gauteng this weekend.
“I’m excited to be racing in South Africa again, with RKT as my race team and with ‘Motul Zimbabwe’ assisting me as well,” Dufty said.
“It’s a fun track to drive and my target this weekend is to finish in the top six.”
With a warm-up, qualifying and three races to be held tomorrow, Dufty will complete over 60km of driving at speeds of up to 140km/h on race day alone.
The two-time Rok World Championship Kart participant will complete over 170km of testing and practice sessions at the track prior to race day to find the perfect setup for his Kosmic kart, with the technical support of his mechanic and father, Kevin.
In round two of this championship, Dufty finished eighth overall from 15 competitors in the Junior Max class. The 12-year-old is one of the youngest competitors in the class dominated by 16-year-olds and hopes race day will provide him with another platform to climb his way up the kart championships ladder.
