This all started many years ago with at least 35 years young the series was represented by the die-hard enthusiasts whom found a way to grow their love of motor cars and have fun at the same time. There was a split of race interests as the older statesman had the classic car formula and the newer and more modern steeds of the day had nowhere to race. Many of these were their daily mode of transport for the wives and enjoyed by the husbands on weekends getting thrashed around the race track to unleash those always needed ego boost and tales to be told afterwards in the watering hole of their choice.
The series started with a small but dedicated group of guys, some still around today to create this formula which changed face and names over the last 30 odd years but still lovingly known as Clubman’s Racing, this formula has had a huge following from the supporters over many a year and the drivers and their families have always been a family matter helping each other and racing to the bitter end. On race day they stick together lending the odd word of advice or jumping in and fixing each other’s cars but once on the track it’s each driver for themselves, men and ladies of all age groups bash the living hell from their steed of choice to complete what to them might be the race of their lives.
As time and technology has evolved the cars have gotten faster and better quality of vehicles emerged for the onslaught of making the formula a success but also prove to themselves that they are the best out there no matter what. Different cultures have grown to be one and there is a spirit of pride when they go and collect the silverware on the end of days racing as everyone chats for hours afterwards of their efforts and exploits after the day’s activities.
In current state we have a vast array of manufacturer’s vehicles making up the grid from Audi to Volkswagen, Bmw and Opel. Anything goes as long as the rules are met and the obligatory MSA guidelines are followed. The championship victor still receives his Western Province colours after all his efforts to place more pride on his mantelpiece come year end.
