Spring flower power motor race at Killarney

Spring flower power motor race at Killarney

Killarney Raceway will play host to Round 7 of the Power Series on Saturday, September 3, with the meeting back to running in the usual “Clockwise” direction.
In the Crossley & Webb Sports & GT Category entries are a little short, as some of the competitors are currently participating in the Africa Endurance Series at Zwartkops. However, what the event lacks in numbers is expected to be made up by the quality of racing on offer from those who have entered. Dawie Joubert (Lotus Exige Honda), who is leading the Championship at this stage, will be looking to repeat his double win from the August race. Joining him in Class A will be the ever-improving Ferrari 430 GT3 of Craig Jarvis, who is steadily reducing his lap times.

Class B’s Gary Kieswetter (Porsche GT3 RS) will be hoping for Class honours as he and Colin Plit (Honda Juno SS3) battle it out.
Maarten Prins (Porsche GT3 Cup) will be the man to beat in Class C, but he will have his hands full with Mike Beachy-Head (Porsche 917 Replica),
Gavin Gorman (Nardini VW 2L), Martin Pugh (Lola T212 Audi), Louis de Jager (Lola T212 Toyota), Godfrey Lancellas (Toyota T212 Toyota) and Cyril Ginsburg (Porsche GT3) all wanting a piece of the pie. Making a comeback after a long absence from Sports & GT will be Dave Alhadeff in the immaculate Panoz Esperante GTS. This Car is an unknown quantity and it should be interesting to see how it performs.

Class D is expected to be a close dice between Ray Farnham (Opel Birkin 7 2L) and Philip Booysen (Lotus Exige 2L). Booysen continues to improve on his lap times as he gets more track time with his car so he and Farnham should be putting on a good show.
As well as the Crossley & Webb Sports & GT Series there is a full programme with V8 Masters, Supercars, Clubmans, GTi Challenge, Formula Libre, Classics and Fine Cars, and all the Motorcycle categories.
There will also be entertainment for the whole family, including displays, stalls, a Fan Walk, live music, kiddies corner and more.

* Gates open at 6.30 am and, after the Qualifying Sessions, the first Race is at 10.15 am, so get there early to make sure you get your favourite spot to see all the action.
