Tyler Robinson, an emerging talent in motorsports and a strong advocate for women in the sport is all set to participate in the upcoming season of the Astron Energy Polo Cup Championship. This will be her second season in the championship, where she debuted in 2023. The championship is part of the popular National Extreme Festival tour and is scheduled to kick off this weekend amidst an enthusiastic Cape crowd.

No longer a rookie, Tyler is looking forward to a solid outing in Cape Town, hoping to kickstart her 2024 championship bid. After racing karts, both locally and internationally, the teenager from Gauteng made the switch to the main circuit in 2023 and has had some impressive results already. Racing out of the Universal Motorsport stable again, Tyler has been diligently preparing for this weekend’s opening round.

“I’m eager to get back into the car this weekend and get my national season underway. Killarney is one of my favourite circuits, and I enjoy the challenge that it poses. The racing is usually quite close, and our first goal will be to get the setup right on Friday and hopefully put in a good qualifying performance,” said Tyler.

The 2024 championship will have seven national races across three provinces, including rounds at the historic East London and iconic Kyalami Grand Prix Circuits. Killarney and Zwartkops Raceway will each host two rounds, while the Aldo Scribante Racetrack in Gqeberha will host one.

The weekend’s program will include three practice sessions on Friday, followed by a late afternoon qualifying session. Two races are scheduled for Saturday. All the Extreme Festival action will be live-streamed on the tour’s YouTube channel.
