22 Nov December 2 Final
December 2 Final
The Western Province Motor Club is going to be ringing the 2017 motorsport curtain down at Killarney, with a big double whammy on Sat. December 2.
Starting in the morning, in addition to the final round of the hugely successful Power Series sponsored by Wingfield Motors, that includes a Breakfast Run Grand Prix as well as a variety of Mike Hopkins motorcycle events, there will also be races for Fine and Classic cars, Supercars, the big V8 Masters cars and Formula Libre single seaters.
Later in the afternoon the action switches across to the Stock Car oval, where it is due to continue until early evening. Here, spectators will have the advantage of being able to select a seat of their choice on the new Rallycross grandstands, to help them enjoy the 4th round of the Hell Drivers smash-‘n -grab, summer championship.
But back on the main circuit, where the powerful V8 Masters category leads the hit parade with a record 18 car entry. As far as the results are concerned, a dozen and a half big V8’s are going to need space to manoeuvre and they could easily end up in a typical rallycross tangle.
So, while Gauteng’s Fabio Tafani has literally been the master of all he surveyed (on the track), the lease for the chequered flag still has to be signed. Multiple former champion Marcel Angel is anxious to finish the season in style, as is long distance British visitor Stephan Young. Enzo Kuun is a former rally titleholder, while Carl Nel has been in sparkling form this year. It’s really, all wide open.
Then if the Bold Marine GTi Challenge lives up to its promise, it could be one of the day’s best shootouts. Here it’s likely to be Jano van der Westhuizen (Polo Vivo) and Shane du Toit (VW Golf 2), providing the highlights in class A, with Jacques Geldenhuys (VW Golf 2) and Mario Roux (VW Jetta 2), doing the same in class B.
But it’s class C where the fireworks can be expected. Because Marco and Dario Busi, as well as young Giordano Lupini, are going to have to contend with Guy Fawkes lookalike Brett Roach. Now Roach is an explosive crackerjack, who takes no prisoners. Don’t miss this one.
With a variety of motorsport that should be enough to suit all tastes, it’s a meeting not to be missed.
