WORR Motorsport’s Aaryan Singh astonished many with his dominance in the Mini MAX class this weekend following his clean sweep at the combined South African Rotax MAX Challenge (SARMC) National and African Open hosted at the Killarney Kart Track, Cape Town.

Born in Johannesburg, twelve-year-old Aaryan relocated to Dubai with his family in 2022. Around the same time, he took up karting for the first time and has since joined GGM Motorsport, where he competes in IAME competitions. Along with his newest accolade of Mini MAX African Open Champion, his success includes the titles of 2023 IAME Middle East Cup Champion and 2023 IAME Summer Cup Vice-Champion.

On Friday, March 22, Aaryan secured a seventh-place qualifying position before winning the opening heat, marking the first of his four victories. Heat 2 on Saturday would see him take a lights-to-flag victory ahead of his third win in the final national heat, having started in fifth. Having achieved the overall victory for the opening national round, he gave himself the best chance at winning the coveted African Open title after starting from pole position. While made to work hard during the initial stages of the final, he showed impressive race craft, skill and determination to take the chequered flag more than two seconds ahead of his closest rival. The win saw him earn a ticket to compete at the RMC Grand Finals in Italy as a member of Team South Africa.

“It has been a tremendous weekend, considering we only decided to participate about a week ago. Teaming up with WORR Motorsport was an obvious choice after a few chats in Dubai about returning to South Africa to race in the African Open. While I race in IAME competitions in the Middle East, I’m a South African at heart and wanted to race at home. I could not have asked for a better result, and I am looking forward to representing Team SA in Italy later this year. Thank you to WORR Motorsport and everyone for their support. I hope to be back soon,” stated Aaryan.
