Multiple karting titles earn KZN lad national colours

Multiple South African karting champion Troy Snyman is immensely proud to have earned South African Protea National Colours for Motor Sport.

Pietermaritzburg native Snyman, who races from his local iDube Kart Track, won several South African National junior karting titles before representing South Africa at the Rotax Max Karting ‘Olympics of Karting’ World Finals. He then did the same at Senior level too.

“It’s been a long, hard road, and it’s taken nine years of dedication to karting to achieve my dream of earning Protea National Colours,” Troy admitted on learning of his award. “I have won national karting championships at both junior and senior level and scored international podiums over the years and I am proud that SASCOC has now honoured my efforts.

“I salute everyone from my parents to my mentors and my teams over the years, and the KZN Kart Club for the parts they all played in my career,” the Grace College, Hilton grade 11 scholar concluded. “Now I look forward to wearing my green and gold blazer with great honour!”
