Leyton Fourie

Leyton Fourie leaves Zwartkops Raceway smiling after a fantastic performance in the final round of the 2018 South African Junior Max Championship.

Following a tough qualifying session on Saturday afternoon, the Bidvest Compendium Insurance Brokers driver started Sunday’s first heat from 7th position. Leyton drove the wheels off his Tony kart, quickly making up ground off the start and putting in consistently fast lap times. When the chequered flag came out, Leyton was in 2nd place.

His race 2 performance saw much of the same, as Leyton and RKT celebrated another 2nd place finish.

Leyton took another podium in race 3, before ending the final heat of the day and the season with yet another 2nd place.

“These are the kind of results I have known we are capable of all season! I am ecstatic to have taken four podiums in four races! A huge shout out to RKT, Bidvest Compendium Insurance Brokers and my family,” commented Leyton.

The weekend’s results were enough to elevate Leyton and RKT into third place in the championship standings. A fantastic achievement in his “rookie” year in the hotly contested SA Junior Max Championship.

“The team really deserve the accolades, we win as a team and lose as a team and although we have two regional events left on the calendar for this year, I am already looking forward to what 2019 will bring,” Concluded Leyton.
