The penultimate national round of the MSA National ROK Cup Karting Championship gets underway later this week at the Killarney International Raceway, where former Gauteng resident Manelisi Nkomo will be keen on moving up in the Mini ROK championships standings.

Currently ranked 11th, Nkomo, who is now located in Cape Town, is two points adrift of the top ten and boasts two top-seven heat finishes across the two rounds run thusfar this season. He will again be racing in the colours of the Walker Racing Academy when he takes to the circuit on Friday morning for the first of several practice sessions.

“I’ve been waiting for some time to race in a national here at my new home circuit. While it’s probably the flattest of all the circuits on the national calendar, it’s unique in its layout with fast and slow sections. I hope to make the best of the practice sessions to ensure a strong setup ahead of Saturday’s qualifying and racing,” said Nkomo.

Saturday’s Qualifying is scheduled for 10:26, with three 12-lap heats set for 11:56, 13:41 and 14:51, respectively.
