To win the race, you need to be in the race. This is something Leyton Fourie has had to learn the hard way this season. The 2017 Mini Max and African Open Champion has been a bit of a piñata to his fellow competitors this year. The mark of a champion is, however, perseverance and Leyton has plenty of that.

The talented young driver will be looking to set the record straight at Zwartkops Raceway this weekend, where he will be competing in the fourth round of the Northern Regions Junior Max Championship on Saturday and the Africa Open on Sunday.

Leyton is currently fifth in the regional championship, but the fight is far from over with three rounds remaining. The robust nature of the class has resulted in very close points standings and one good event will drastically change the hierarchy.

The Africa Open works on a completely different basis. There is no points accumulation. The winner of the final on the day takes full honours. Those honours being an entry into the World Rotax Max Final later this year.

It’s not going to be easy, but with his talent, determination and support from RKT and Bidvest Compendium Insurance Brokers, Leyton undoubtably has what it takes to be at the front of the pack.
