Multiple winners on a busy Max race day

The Killarney Kart Track delivered a bumper day of midwinter racing as a few upcountry classes joined the fourth round of Western Province Rotax Max championships to deliver close racing and multiple winners in most classes. 

Dino Stermin took the opening DD2 race from Jason Coetzee, Sebastian Boyd, Jonathan Thomas and Jarryd Evans as Conor Hughes took Masters honours from Roy Gruer, Marco Viegas and Ernst Viljoen, with the same top four in race 2 ahead of Masters winner Gruer, Hughes, Viegas and Viljoen. Coetzee then put one over Stermin, Boyd and Thomas as Gruer again beat Hughes, Viegas and Andre Steenkamp in Masters to see Stermin take the day overall from Coetzee and Boyd as Gruer took the Masters day from Hughes and Viegas.

Simon Simpson-Heath won the opening Senior Max race from Kai van Zijl and Charl Visser, before Visser bounced back to take race 2 from van Zijl and Simpson-Heath. Van Zijl then took his chance to win the final from Visser and Simpson-Heath, as van Zyl took the day in from Visser and Simpson-Heath, with Storm Lanfear taking fourth, Reece Oellermann and Andrew Thomas sixth in all three races.

Tate Bishop took all three under-15 Junior Max races from Troy Dolinschek, with Storm Lanfear third from Luca Wehrli, Kyle and Andre Le Riche in the opening race. Wehrli ended third in the second race ahead of the recovering Kyle Visser, Kyle and Andre Le Riche, while Visser was third behind Bishop and Dolinschek in the Final as Lanfear bounced back to fourth ahead of Wehrli and Kyle Le Riche.

Under 13 Mini Max saw Ethan Stier take the opening race from Jason Macbeath, Mikhail Fernandez, Valentino Hoffman, Paul Malcolm and Mischa Williams before Race 2 delivered the same top four while Williams and Malcolm swapped fifth and sixth. Macbath then beat Stier, Fernandez Hoffman, Williams and Malcolm to the final win, but that was not enough to stop Stier from taking the day from Macbeath and Fernandez.

Reza Levy dominated under-11 Micro Max with three wins on the trot from Reese Koorzen, Joshua Smit and the three Ethans, Lennon, Deacon and Stier, with the second race delivering an identical result, but Ethan Deacon beat Ethan Lennon to fourth in the final, while the overall result reflected the first two race positions.

Rayan Karriem took all three baby Bambino races, from Jordon Wadeley, Luan Mostert, Kai van Rensburg, Nikolas Louw and Rebecca Wadeley in race 1, while Mostert beat Wadeley to second in race 2 with the rest in the same order as race 1.
