As the two-stroke engines are about to roar to life at the iconic Killarney International Raceway in Cape Town, all eyes will be set on the three-time national Rotax karting and two-time African Open champion Caleb Odendaal. This weekend marks a significant milestone in his racing journey as he steps into the highly competitive Junior MAX class for the first time at a national, eager to carve his name among the elite.

Despite being a rookie, Caleb’s reputation precedes him. Widely recognized as one of the sport’s rising stars, he brings a wealth of experience and skill to the grid. With victories etched in the history books at Cape Town’s renowned circuit, Caleb is no stranger to the winner’s circle and is determined to make his mark once again.

Hailing from the Eastern Cape, Caleb is one of the few drivers representing his region in this championship. Amidst 21 talented competitors across South Africa, his presence adds a unique dynamic to the grid, showcasing the diversity and depth of talent in the karting scene. Wesley Patterson joins Caleb this weekend as his engineer and will guide the East London pupil through the twists and turns of Killarney’s karting circuit. His expertise and support will be instrumental in the young racer’s weekend.

As the countdown to the opening national round of the SARMC Championship begins, anticipation runs high for what promises to be an exhilarating showcase of racing. For Caleb, this weekend isn’t just about competing; it’s about seizing every opportunity to shine and reaffirm his status as a force to be reckoned with in the world of karting.
