We dedicated the day to Alfa and had a fantastic turnout from the Alfa club who joined us for the fan walk and made quite an impression with their awesome mechanical works of art.
With a good entry, 24 cars made it to the track. Upfront current championship leader and raining champion Franco qualified pole, Michael Hitchcock seemed to be in the mood to race and snatched the lead from Franco in heat one, heat 2 went the way of Michael again, and unfortunately, Franco retired with a mechanical failure. Charles Arton in the ever quick Datsun could not catch Michael and managed a second place for the day, with Eric Van Der Merwe in his Pre 90 Porsche 944T in 3 rd Place.
Class B was dominated by Ferdi Mouton (Mustang V8), Geoff Bihl in his Porsche 944 put in a solid performance for his 2 nd place. Jarrod Thomson recovered from his fuel pump issues in heat 2 and managed a 3 rd for the day.
Class C was a family affair with Layne Hutchings in his Pre 90 Golf Mk2 GTi beating out his old man Trevor in his Pre 80 Scirroco, in third place was J-W Andre De la Porte in his magnificent Datsun.
Class D went the way of Ernst Viljoen in his beautiful Alfa Junior Sprint, Ernst spent most of his race challenging the class C driver Trevor Hutchings, the two of them neck and neck with a classic race between front vs rear-wheel drive legends. 2nd Place went to Jacques Blom in his Pre 90 Sierra Cosworth.
Class E was as usual an Epic battle between the Anton Rollino Morris Minor and the Alfa Guilia Super of Neil Mouton. Anton took heat 1 and Neil heat 2 and the overall win for the day.
The driver of the Day went to Michael Hitchcock for his exceptional performance
Newcomer and main sponsor Clinton Laurens from Laude Classic cars in his impressive Jaguar Xj-S V12 (Thundercat) received the Does Trophy ( Driver of Exceptional Skill ) of the day for his exceptional spins in quali and heat one.
Chris Carolin went exceptionally well rocketing to class C. Wynand Nell was unlucky with a mechanical failure in Qualifying.
