First 24-hour endurance karting event for SA in December

The Prokart SSS Club will host Africa’s first premiere 24-hour endurance karting event on December 1 and 2.

This prestigious event will be held at Laserfiche Raceway and the entire event will be streamed live with professional commentary provided by The Voice of Choice, Greg Moloney and his team.

There will be team and driver interviews, live timing and more. Apart from great racing, other entertainment will include racing simulators that will be available to all visitors to the track.

A limited number of grid slot entries are available as only 45 teams will compete. The event is open to anyone, provided you have the required equipment and drivers to partake. If you do not, there will be motors and race spec karts for hire and talented drivers can be arranged for teams who are looking for drivers.

“The event is the first of its kind in Africa and will showcase what South Africa has to offer in the four-stroke karting category,” says Sheldon Halgreen, chairman of the Prokart SSS Club and director at Noscotek, Kempton Park.

“South African karters have often saved up a lot of money to attend similar events across our borders, like the Dubai 24-hour, which was attended by Formula One greats like Fernando Alonso among others. Worldwide, 24-hour endurance karting is very popular,” he added.

There’s the Spa 24-hour in Belgium, the 24-hour Le Mans Karting in France, the 24-hour of America and many more. “It’s time we invite the world to come and participate in our own Africa 24-hour endurance. The organisation and level of competition will be first class.”

Laserfiche Raceway has hosted many successful 12-hour races over the past 20 years that Prokart SSS Club has been in operation.

“The thrill of racing through the night, watching your competitors to see when they make their pit stops, strategising over who in your team is going to drive next and how much fuel you’re going to put in at your next pit stop to give you that competitive edge, is what Prokart SSS is all about. The karts and Honda GX390 motors are all heavily regulated to ensure fair competition and close racing.”

The event will follow the Prokart SSS technical rules and regulations.

“The event will raise funds for the Catherine Robson Children’s Home in Vereeniging. The 12-hour race in 2017 contributed over R25 000 to this charity and we wish to increase that contribution this year,” says Halgreen.

Sponsors who wish to participate and be part of this historic race can contact the club by email: [email protected] There are many sponsorship packages for sponsors to get on board and get maximum exposure, especially with the live streaming service being provided that will allow advertising slots during the broadcast.
