After a disappointing Motor Race Meeting in June, the Race on July 12 was most rewarding for Competitors and Spectators alike. It
turned out to be one of Cape Town’s most beautiful Winter days and the racing was fast and furious at Killarney.
The next race will take place on Saturday, August 9, and a repeat of the July weather is hoped for to ensure the best conditions for fast paced racing. Although a relatively small field is expected for the Sports & GT Category, the 5 Classes should provide for lots of close racing. The main man to watch is Francis Carruthers in his blits-quick Nissan-powered Juno. Also entered in Class A is Dawie Joubert with his new Lotus Honda Exige which, if the performance matches the appearance, will be something to watch, while there will also be strong competition from Toby Venter in the Porsche GT2.
Another interesting entry is from Divan Wentzel, who is driving the
Porsche Corvette. As a new entry he is entered in Class X and will be classified after Qualifying on Race Day.
In the lower Classes, the lap times are usually very close and there should be lots of exciting racing as each driver does his best to get the better of his fellow drivers.
Included in the program are Superbikes, Clubmans, Classic Cars, Fine Cars and Formula Libre, as well as a GTI Challenge that will feature a Sprint Race, and also end the day with a 1-Hour Enduro event. There will be the usual Fan Walk at the lunch break, when Spectators have the opportunity to engage with the drivers and their cars.
The Trackside Pub & Grill will be open all day, and they have a tempting menu at affordable prices, so there will be no need to go hungry.
