2018 will see Mini Rok enter its 8th National season in South Africa, and exciting times it is indeed, with WPMC adding to the already very strong regional base of this class. We also welcome the official return of BirelArt to the Mini Rok championship, together with Praga SA/IPK who will also be fielding some very strong competitors.
The key to the success of this class has been because of rule stability and low running cost. Since its introduction into South Africa, there have been no changes to the regulations that would affect the cost to the competitor or result in equipment becoming obsolete. In fact, the only changes introduced, were to enforce stricter measures to ensure that the integrity of the rules are respected.
The explosion of Mini Rok world Wide has resulted in better pricing, of not only the motors, but also the spare parts. This has had a major impact for a country like South Africa where you can buy a complete Mini Rok Engine Package for R17 000.00 including VAT.
Many South African drivers have enjoyed the excitement and challenge of the ROK International Final, hosted annually, at arguably the best karting venue in the world, namely Lonato – South Garda.
Also here South Africa has produced amazing results, the highlight being a 1-2 finish for SA with Clinton Bezuidenhout and Liam Pienaar. This event has grown to be the biggest Mini race of its kind, typically sporting 160 drivers in this 60cc class and 450 drivers in total, for the past 2 years running.
