A Shared Vision


Whilst South Africa is internationally recognised as having produced many successful motorsport competitors, its reputation as a major player in the global motorsport industry has been virtually non-existent. One cannot blame this on a lack of successful businesses in the sector, but rather on the absence of an officially recognized, formalized and structured motorsport industry.

SAKRA Driver Fitness Program


It was an honor for me to be afforded the opportunity to be involved with the South African Kart Racing Academy. I have been involved with many top sports men and women around the world but this opportunity to work with young kids from the start of such an exciting program was truly incredible.

What the SAKRA Programme Means to Me


How it all started…

It all started when my school had a “Soap Box Derby” where the parents had to help build a go kart and participate in a race. I could not attend due to a swimming competition but wished I had a kart of my own. My mom saw an advertisement in the local paper and asked me if I would be interested in karting. She completed and forward my application and did not know what to expect.

No Challenge too Big


Jumping from the SAKRA class to the Max Challenge class was a big move for me. At the end of 2008, Claudio and the SAKRA management decided to put me in a Max kart to give me a feel of how different it is from the Extreme kart. When I went out in the Max kart for the first time, I was shocked at how much I had to change my driving style and how exhausted you feel once you ended the session. The more I practised, the faster I became and got some sort of idea how the kart characteristics are.
