HUMBLE ROYALTY OF KZN RACING
THE Gutzeit family have lived on the South Coast and been investing in the growth of the area for over 40 years. A clan of motoring enthusiasts who work as hard as they play, they can rightfully be described at the humble royalty of KZN racing.
• Des Gutzeit (61) has raced from oval tracks to bikes and had a legendary 12-year career in the Wesbank Super 8 series. He currently competes in the AutoTrader SupaDrift Series and Hill Climbs.
• Jade Gutzeit (38) made his racing name as a motorcycle enduro racer, winning the SA Enduro Championships 10 years in a row. He joined his father on the Wesbank Super 8 circuit, and is also a hillclimb champion. Today his main focus is the Time Attack format.
• Shane Gutzeit (30) races with his father in the AutoTrader SupaDrift Series and finished third in the 2014 national championships.
• Blake Gutzeit (19) has set his sights on international motorcycle Enduro Racing and is currently competing in his first year of the world Enduro Circuit in Europe, where he consistently places in the top 10, and has recorded a fourth position finish so far. • Carl Gutzeit (36) is the one Gutzeit son to stay out of racing, preferring fishing, for which he has his national colours.
The family business, Dezzi, is run under the guidance of Des and Louise and designs and makes yellow machines. More on www.dezzi.co.za
