Round 8 of the KING PRICE F400 Karting Challenge took place on Sunday 6 October at the Vereeniging Kart Circuit.
The Mini/Maxi Go Kart team, sponsored by Gabriel Shocks SA racers Clyde McCree, Graham Donker and Fernando Senna, were more than prepared for the three rounds endurance race. In the qualifying round, the team placed 3rd in a field of 19 competitors.
In race 1, the team kept their composure and finished 3rd. Race 2 was more challenging as the top four leading go karts including the Mini/Maxi Gabriel team gave it their best performance and at the end of the race they finished in 2nd place. Race 3, the final race, was also closely contested but by the end of the final two-hour racing time, the team had managed a 4th place finish. This gave them 2nd overall for the day and a remarkable 2nd place in the Championship going into Round 9.
