ROND IS HIGHEST MOVER AT WHILTON MILL

The team made their way to the Whilton Mill Long Weekender for their first race meeting of 2024 to contest the Inter-Max category.

After missing practice and a Qualifying Heat on Friday due to schooling commitments, Nathan Rond was starting the weekend on the back foot.


Saturday consisted of the three remaining qualifying heats. Heat 2 was a strong 12th and in Heat 4 he came across the line 18th. An unfortunate DNF in Heat 3, after being caught up in someone else’s accident whilst inside the top 10, meant he had two none-finishes.

Rond didn’t let this hold him back and went into Sunday and the remaining races full force. In an incredible push to get to the front, Rond made his way from 24th on the grid to 7th by the end of Sector 1 on the first lap in the Pre-Final, which made him the highest mover of the day in Inter-Max. Delivering consistent laps saw him cross the line in 9th at full race distance.


Lining up 9th for the Final, Rond went into it all or nothing. After a challenging opening stint, he settled in and placed strong lap times. When the chequered flag came down, the SODI Vitesse driver finished up the race in 14th. An impressive stint from the young driver sees the team looking forward to what else he can achieve this season, especially when luck lines up on his side.


The team look to Forest Edge Kart Club this weekend for Round 1 of the 2024 FEKC campaign, competing in Inter-Max and Junior Max.
