Nurturing young talent: Cayden Robert’s motorsport journey

The age-old saying, ‘Start them young and watch them grow,’ holds true, especially when it comes to nurturing talent. Cayden Robert embodies this. Read on to see how.

Motorsport enthusiast Cayden Robert, aged 15, from Olivedale, has been immersed in racing since childhood. With nine years of racing experience, Cayden aims to make his mark both locally and internationally.

Although a recent attempt at the 2024 Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup in Spain didn’t materialise, Cayden is now focused on winning the SA Short Circuit 150 Championship, which he currently leads on a Kawasaki ZX400.

Guided by mentor Clint Seller, himself a nine-time SA superbike champion, Cayden balances his racing ambitions with high school studies. As he dreams of competing professionally, he looks up to local heroes like the Binder brothers and aspires to enter long-circuit racing. His advice to aspiring young riders: stay humble, work hard and be mentally strong in this challenging yet rewarding sport.

Reflecting on his recent experience in Spain, Cayden admits to initial intimidation but gained confidence witnessing the success of South African rider Kgopotso ‘KJ’ Mononyane.

For those eager to explore the world of South African motorsport, the Motorsport SA website provides comprehensive information.
