Nationals @Killarney – Sat 2 April

30 March 2011 No Comment

With the second round of the national 2011 WesBank Super Series set for take-off at Killarney on Saturday (April 2), changes to various categories promise to make the racing more exciting than ever. .

The biggest transformation is in the Bridgestone Production Car category that now includes two sets of back to back sprint events. In other words, four starts and an equal number of finishes.
The grid for the first race in the …morning is determined by the qualifying times. The cars then line up for the second event immediately afterwards, in grid positions that were determined by the finishing order in the first race – and then partially inverted.
The third and fourth events later in the day will follow the same pattern.
Anthony Taylor notched up two wins in his Afrox BMW 335i at Kyalami with two other drivers taking the chequered flag in the remaining events.
However the Subaru WRX’s of Hennie Groenewald and Richard Pinard were impressive and with their all-wheel-drive, will be even more of a threat in the event of rain in the Cape.
In the single seater events, the amalgamation of the Engen Formula Volkswagens and the 1600 Formula Fords has virtually doubled the field and created a more thrilling open wheel spectacle.
The Cape is strongly represented by drivers like Johan Fourie in the Bridgestone Production Car events in his Indy Oil Audi A4.
Stars in the Engen Volkswagen Cup events include the legendary Sarel van der Merwe, as well as Kosie Weyers, Bryan Morgan, Brennon Green and Brett Roach.
Lance Isaacs (Bikefin Honda) and Dave McFadden (Peper Racing Kawasaki) will represent the Cape in the Interfile bike category.
The first of the 15 events gets under way at 10h.30. Admission is R80 for adults and R20 for scholars U16. There is no charge for kiddies U12.
