Spectacular O'Ward at the Super Nationals’ event in Las Vegas.

The very young Rokker of J3 Competition’s Team has written himself in the gold book of the Mini Rok competition held in Nevada. The Rok opening, held on the circuit realized in the parking area of the Rio Hotel of Las Vegas, has been an authentic success. Not less than 42 were the young “stars and stripes” Rokkers competing, which gave a very important prize to Vortex and its championship, in the United States, too.


Patricio O'Ward (Kosmic Kart – Mini Rok) just returned from his excellent performance of the International Final of Lonato, once again showed off his driving skills winning the Rok competition of Las Vegas.

Many were the protagonists in the Mini Rok category, amongst which the poleman Flinn Lazier and the winners of the qualifying rounds, Devlin De Francesco, Anthony Gangi Jr and Parker Thompson, all of them big protagonists in the very Final, too. Under the chequered flag the winner was O’Ward just in front of Parker Thompson and Colton Herta.
