All the NEWS proudly brought to you by HJC HELMETS A RISING YOUNG STAR A short while ago an email arrived from a very proud Dad of a young marvel on a motorbike, who at the very tender age of 5 years old is already creating waves in the SA racing scene. We are one hundred percent behind developmental racing and love inspirational stories like this. The email reads as follows, (verbatim – copy & paste): “Good day, My name is Zenzele Mafokate father of a 5 year old motorbike marvel Bohlale Mafokate who is involved in short circuit and motocross racing. We call him Littleman#110 as he is the youngest short circuit racer. The number 110 is his race number derived from his date of birth, which is 1st October. It all started as a father and son riding together on weekends. He then developed the love for racing as I am always watching all forms of motor racing on TV as an ex-racer myself. He started racing in August 2018 and has so far managed to secure 5 podium finishes (2 in motocross and 3 in short circuit racing). His success so far has been largely due to some contributions from friends and family. He currently uses a Yamaha PW50 bike for both circuit and motocross racing. My request is to feature him in your magazine to attract more youngsters to this lovely sport. Hope to hear from you, Regards. Zenzele Mafokate” Zenzele, thank you for your letter and thank you for sharing your love of motorcycling with your son and encouraging him to get really involved in the sport. We look forward to following his career and hope to see him on the international stage in the near future. We truly do hope that more parents are inspired by you and your son to participate and compete in this great sport. 14 RIDEFAST MAGAZINE JANUARY 2020
