Charl takes Super, Kyle impresses in OKJ

Cape Town's Rotax Max champion karting brothers, Charl and Kyle Visser got their 2019 Rok karting challenge off to a brilliant start when Charl steered to overall victory in DVS Super Rok, while 11-year old Kyle proved to be the surprise of the OKJ Junior Rok races with fourth overall after a couple of thirds on the day.

“I was happy to get into DVS very quickly and it is good to open the Rok season with an overall win,” Charl reflected. “DVS is a super-quick kart and a blast to race, so I was happy to add the fastest lap of the day of all classes. “Special thanks to my dad, our race engineers Bigshow and Zefry and to Ricky Perdigao for all the help — now we head home for the first Rotax Max nationals at Killarney this weekend — I can’t wait!

“Today was my first race in OKJ Junior Rok and I think I surprised a few people,” 11 year old Kyle, who is competing against kids as old as 15 admitted. “I ended up fourth overall, but it could have been better, because I was taken out in the opening heat and I still only missed third overall by a couple of points against the Rok who’s who in Jo’burg, so a great result all round.

The Visser lads now head home to Killarney to commence their chase of the titles one above the Mini Max title Kyle won last year and Charl's Junior Max championship with each now racing the Junior and Senior Max, respectively.
