Kayde Cornofsky returns for a second season of national Kid ROK competition when he heads to the Eastern Cape later this week for the opening round of the 2023 MSA National Karting Championship. Hosted at the Celso Scribante Kart Track in Gqeberha, the circuit will see its first national since 2019.
While Cornofsky has been in good form this season, he is also the last winner of a Kid ROK national race heat, having claimed a win at the last race meeting in 2022. With a top-five finish in his 2022 rookie season, the Johannesburg driver will be intent on adding to his sole victory and wants nothing more than to be the national Kid ROK champion in 2023.
“Despite having not raced in Gqeberha before, I am confident that we can do well there. I believe it’s a circuit that suits my driving style and I will be making the most of Friday’s practice sessions. Tyres will play a vital role this weekend with the Celso circuit slightly more abrasive than most but I am sure the team will have a good strategy in place. I can’t wait to get back in the kart,” said Cornofsky.
Kayde is backed by Canario Cornofsky Attorneys, Calisto’s Portuguese Restaurant, Allegiance Properties and Smith Garage. Friday will see several practice sessions ahead of a full program of racing on Saturday. The event will also be streamed live on the ROK Cup South Africa social media channels on Saturday.
