Bay winter hotrod action
THE Richards Bay Hotrod Club will take to the track on Saturday with some hotly contested battles and high running tensions in the offing.
New to the Rookie class, Craig Campbell has already caused an upset by winning his first meeting in his first event, but can he keep it up?
Karl Blignaut and JP de Lira will be doing their best to keep him honest.
The Stockrod class is one to keep an eye on because, as the field gets faster the racing gets better, more competitive and downright enthralling.
Between Garth Holgate, Colin Rheeders, Aubry Pearce and William Bezuidenhout things are about to get even hotter, however Gail Campbell is prepared to show the lads who wears the pants and is determined to come out tops.
The 2-litre Hotrods will be running a 30 lap final.
Who could make it to the end, who will falter, who’s car will prevail?
This Ford vs Nissan class is super competitive and not one driver will give an inch.
The Strydom brothers, Tony Loosemore, Marcel Kotze Junior, Mathew Burgess, the Montgomery brothers, Denver Wright, Louis de Lira and Johan Cornelissen will all be out for the win.
The 1660 Saloons will be on track and Riaan Lombard is having a good run of late.
Can he catch Martie de Jager,
Joe Fleming, Hannes Olivier, Riaz Fakrooden in the championship?
Leon Struwig will also be out to take his share of the spoils.
Also, after a brilliant last race win in his Mini, will Joe Fleming again revert to the Mini or has he got something up his sleeve with the Tigra?
Only time will tell.
The Ninja Midget class will be a tight battle between Nathan Strydom, Quian Bezuidenhout and Kevlan Reddy, however Blake Jardine and Chay du Preez are on the chase.
Mia Strydom continues to improve in leaps and bounds while she and Lizelle Mitchell will do their best to keep the boys honest.
Midgets will be out and this group are so close it is anybody’s game.
Can Ethan Cooper retain his lead from Kalen Naidoo and Werner van Tonder?
Mathew Campbell and Jayden Kruger complete the field with new drivers looming.
A kiddies plastic bike race at 4.30 pm is open to public entries, so if you have a wannabe racer, bring them along and enter at the control tower.
Racing starts at 5pm with a
R80 cost for adults and R40 for children.
Neil Strydom will be competing in the 2L Hotrod/Pinto class
