At least 30 drivers have entered to compete for podium finishes in 16 different races in a sport that is regarded as the breeding ground for all motor sport genres.
Kart racing sensation, young Luke Rosseau will be looking to continue his dominance in the six to 12 age group category, which he won last time, but could get a stern test from the Mliswa brothers Samuel and David this time around.
In the Minirok class — age group eight to 13 — Cameron Revolta and Zac Dufty will renew their rivalry while Danika Hockey and Calvin Mukandiwa could also spring a surprise.
Keegan Davie, who previously came first after winning four heats in the junior class, is the lad to watch in his new kart as his rivals in the 11 to 16 age class, look to tear the form book to shreds.
In an interview with Standardsport, Harare Karting Club official Jane Telling gave an insight of what to expect.
“It’s going to be a kart racing spectacular. Each race is supervised with flags indicating information to the drivers, just like you see at Formula One races. The smell of the engines and the noise as the karts race around the track makes it exhilarating to watch.
“Spectators will be allowed to walk through the pits and talk to drivers and mechanics and find out more about karting. It is just amazing to see young kids whizzing round the track at up to 60km per hour!” she said.
Racing starts at 11am and entrance is US$5 per car.
