SeyPearl karting championship-Padayachy, Salome, Rene, Fred, Kurz, Mellon round winners


Competing against seven drivers, Michel Padayachy took two wins in as many races in the SF6 class.

David Viljoen crossed the finish line second but was handed a 30-second penalty for a jump start and dropped to fifth. Joshua Samsoodin was promoted to second place and Keval Shakida finished third.

After two drivers dropped out due to a shortage of karts that they could fit in, the organisers decided to award them points according to their final positions in the heats. This means that Greg Olivia finished fourth, Viljoen fifth, Angelo Padayachy sixth, and Anil Gonthier and Jaden Pothin joint-seventh.

Michel Padayachy leads the table with 56 points, followed by Gonthier on 35, Shakida on 33, Olivia and Angelo Padayachy on 32 each, Samsoodin on 23, Viljoen on14 and Pothin on 12.

In the SF5 category, Rodney Salome took victory after a tremendous battle with Ryan Marianne and Arnold Mein. In the end, Mein made a mistake in the hairpin allowing Marianne to take second place.

Michael Gédéon drove well to finish fourth, Julio Chetty was fifth and Amadave Camille sixth.
Marianne leads the table with 51 points followed by Salome on 42, Chetty on 33, Camille on 29, Mein on 22 and Gédéon on 16.

David Rene took another victory in Sunday’s SF1 race relegating Stephan Simon and John Simon to second and third positions.

Raced together with the 10-kart SF3, the drivers had trouble overtaking one another but it still turned out to be an interesting race.

Rene leads the standings with 84 points followed by Stephan Simon with 69 and John Simon with 55.

Peter Fred turned up the heat to win the SF3 division ahead of runner-up Marc Delcy and third place finisher Damien Bonnelame. Again the drivers had to be at their best to avoid losing places or crashing out.


After the win, Fred leads the table with 79 points. Delcy is second on 65 points, Dane Decommarmond third on 55, Redman Bonnelame fourth on 45, Damien Bonnelame fifth on 38, Roland Delcy sixth on 31, Marvin Sophie seventh on 31 and Tim Horpinitch eighth on 13. Horpinitch was absent for the last race.

In the SF4 class, Montel Kurz took another easy win with Chan Decommarmond finishing second and Christian Port-Louis third.


In the heats, Chan Decommarmond and Andrew Gabriel looked threatening, but Kurz controlled the final to win easily. He now leads the table with 84 points followed in second place by Chan Decommarmond with 61. Mitra Labrosse is third with 48 points, Christian Port-Louis fourth with 44, Rennick Bonnelame fifth with 42, Gabriel twin brothers Andrew and Yannick joint-sixth with 41, and Debra Mellon eighth with 28.

The last event featured the female drivers in round one of the SF Ladies category which was dominated by Debra Mellon. Mitra Labrosse was hot on Mellon’s bumper for second place, while Bernadette Mein was third. Velma Esparon, who was making a comeback, finished fourth.

The next round will be raced at the end of the month, but attention is now focusing on the first Endurance event of the year that is scheduled for the beginning of June, where all SKA drivers will take part in teams of three or four drivers. There will also be a local guest team taking part for the first time.
