The first round of the SA Rok Cup will take place at Laserfiche Raceway on Saturday (16 March 2019) and there is definitely a feeling that everything before this was just a dress rehearsal for Luke Hill.
Not only is the competition going to be tough, with the best young drivers South Africa has to offer, but Luke will need to put in double the work with entries in both the Kid Rok and Mini Rok classes.
Racing in Praga blue, Luke has the pace and experience to challenge for gold in Kid Rok. Whilst clinching a National title in the class would be fantastic, Luke’s focus has admittedly shifted somewhat to the bigger (and faster) Mini Rok kart.
After experiencing the added adrenaline and competition that Mini Rok offers, Luke is hooked. Not only does the class offer a real challenge, both mentally and physically, but racing with the slightly older drivers has huge advantages in terms of improving race craft. The addition of a “sub-championship” for drivers under 10 years of age, offers further motivation and opportunity for Luke to shine.
Luke has the passion to succeed and together with the backing from Praga South Africa and K2 Motorsport, he has the infrastructure to achieve his goals. The racing is going to be action packed!
