KERPEN, Sunday, June 19 2016 - It wasn't an easy weekend for Roderick, but during the fourth round of the Dutch championship karting in Kerpen he showed that a mix of fighting spirit and driving skills can get you far. In the highly competitive Minimax class the ten-year old from The Hague eventually entered the top ten. It was the result of a steady rise that only told part of the story. Because given the remarkable speed at his disposal, an even better result had been possible. The seventh time in qualifying already indicated that Roderick was close to the top five, speed-wise.
