Kayde Cornofsky capitalised on his increase in form at Zwartkops Kart Raceway this past weekend finishing third overall in another hotly-contested round of Kid ROK racing.
The Johannesburg youngster claimed two runner-up positions at Round 5 of MSA’s Northern Regions Regional Karting Championship on Saturday to continue his forward momentum and his position in the overall championship standings.
Running in his Ralph Schumacher kart Kayde qualified in fourth and made up two positions to end his opening heat as the runner-up behind fellow Xtreme Racing Team driver, Brodi Dowling. The second heat would see Polish-descendant Cornofsky again start fourth, but this time retain his position over the finish line to finish just off the podium.
Kayde would however save his best for last, finishing second in the final heat behind Maddox Mason by only 0,078 seconds. In doing so, he also recorded the fastest lap of the race. His two runners-up placings along with a fourth-place finish saw him take the third overall position on the day to claim yet another hard-earned trophy.
“Firstly, I’d like to thank the team for their hard work once again. Many don’t see what happens off track and most times the mechanics don’t get the recognition they deserve for a job well done. My overall performance was strong today and I’m pretty satisfied. Despite narrowly missing out on a heat victory I managed two runner-up spots and that’s not too bad. It’s been good preparation for the upcoming national in a few weeks’ time,” said Cornofsky.
Kayde extends his thanks to Canario Cornofsky Attorneys, George’s Portuguese Restaurant, Smith Garage and Allegiance Properties. The final national round is up next for Kayde which sees him compete at the MSA National Karting Championship at Zwartkops Kart Raceway on September 9-10.
