Luhan De Wet continued his dominance of the Cadet class with another prevalent performance at the weekend as the MSA National ROK Cup Karting Championship concluded its second round of competition at the Formula-K Kart Circuit.

After a full day of practice on Friday, the youngest karting class competing in the championship had their qualifying session late in the afternoon. De Wet qualified in second place, earning another front-row start and winning all three races of the day by a significant margin. He demonstrated dominance by being the only driver to complete a lap under 41 seconds on the new track layout.

De Wet holds 105 points and is the championship leader, but the official confirmation from MSA is still pending. This puts him in a strong position as the championship reaches its halfway point.

“Very proud of Luhan today,” said Father Sharl. “His focus was not entirely there yesterday (Friday), but today he brought his A-game and blew away the competition. We will continue to build on this with two more national ROK Cup championship rounds remaining. Our focus will now shift to the regional Bambino championship in a few weeks’ time where we want to assert our authority too.”

De Wet thanks De Wet Automotive Performance Service & Repairs, Duratec Batteries Centurion, Alunite Pretoria and the crew of NBR Racing.

Round 3 of the MSA National ROK Cup Championship resumes on 4-5 August in Cape Town at the Killarney International Raceway. De Wet will, however, be back at Zwartkops Kart Raceway competing in the MSA Northern Regions Rotax Karting Championship on 10 June.
