Kayde Cornofsky, a young driver of Polish descent, demonstrated his skill at Benoni’s Formula-K Kart Circuit this weekend. He won the Round 2 ROK Cup National trophy with another impressive performance.
Cornofsky, who arrived at the circuit on Friday morning feeling somewhat unwell, skipped two practice sessions as he took the time to recover. Once fully fit, he continued preparing for the afternoon Qualifying Session, finishing third behind championship leader Logan Billau and rookie Noah Cronje.
It, however, took Cornofsky only a short time to lead the Kid ROK field, where he went on to win the first of three heats. While he battled Billau for the lead in Heat 1, in Heat 2, he fended off Billau’s early challenge to take a comfortable victory before repeating the feat in the final heat of the day. While the championship results are still provisional, Cornofsky is now equal on points with Billau after dropping his three lowest-scoring heats.
“I am delighted with how it all turned out today. Yesterday (Friday), I overcame a bug to continue my practice preparation. While I missed the pole position, I was confident our race pace would be strong, which I showed from the results. Once again, the team was phenomenal, and I cannot thank them enough. Thank you also to those who continually support and encourage me.”
Cornofsky thanks Canario Cornofsky Attorneys, Calisto’s Portuguese Restaurant, Allegiance Properties and Smith Garage.
Round 3 of the National ROK Cup Championship resumes on 4-5 August in Cape Town at the Killarney International Raceway. Cornofsky will, however, be back at Formula-K competing in the MSA Northern Regions ROK Karting Championship on 8 July.
