Welcome Mel welcomed everyone and thanked them for such a good turnout.
Apologies Chris vd Westhuizen, Werner Pieterse, Robyn Kruger
Previous events CIP – Sunday 2 August – was a good day and thanks has to go to Tanya for her efforts, also everyone else that helped
make it a great day – Robert and Tyler with the music, car and TV, Chris for putting up the cash prize for the
competition, Willem for the banners, everyone who made the effort, CIP organisers have said they will start awarding
prizes for the best stand in future (yes we set such a good example)
Round 5 Zwartkops Sasol Race Day 8 Aug – nice entry and generally clean racing. Well done to all.
Technical & car checks we had 2 protests and also 5 cars dynoed and checked during the course of the day as committee random checks
2 of the cars during the day – were found to have more power and as a result were underweight, and each got an
underweight penalty and had to readjust their weight for the 2nd heat.
2 protested cars – 1 slightly over and also got the weight penalty and a time penalty also applied, this changed the
class B results for 1st and 2nd place..
The conduct of drivers and their crew is the drivers responsibility – one drivers dad was very vocal and rude, and Mel
did tell him that if he talks that way again, his son will not be participating in SuperHatch anymore.
There are some concerns about the dyno and the consistency of the readings. And a few individuals will be speaking
to Braam directly to see what can be done.
Sponsors Thanks to them as always
T.V This past round is on Super Sport SS8 on Friday the 28th of Aug 18h30
Upcoming events: Dezzi 29 August – sponsor to subsidise entries? – Full points as with EL in 2014 due to the costs of the event. We are
all trying, the cars dyno for there, perhaps all cars need to be tuned on vacuum, to ensure all is fine. Committee to
make the call in the next few days.

Rules submitted for consideration for 2016 – the floor is to decide if each suggestion should or should not be discussed by the new
committee or not.
Only suggestions that were received in writing by the 9th of August in writing will be entertained.
As always the floor to decide if the ideas need to go to the committee for consideration, the committee will have the final say.
Mel read out the suggestions, those that will be discussed by the committee are as follows:
Yellow card system to be looked at – higher penalties for bumping.
Starting grid race 1 quali times versus reverse
Endurance race – all drivers to be SH members versus anyone can have a non-member co driver
Gearboxes and the sealing of them (this raises the concern of the lack of vehicles at registration days) penalty to apply to those who
don’t attend.
Power checks on race days to be carried out
Open up the camber rule
AGM – choosing of the new committee
Chairperson – Mel Spurr
Financials – Mark du Toit

The Leisure Grass SuperHatch put on a great show at the annual Sasol Race Day this past weekend with a big field and super close racing action.
In qualifying it was Hilton van Nieuwenhuizen (ASAP Citroen C2) that put in the quickest lap, ahead of Jono du Toit (TAR Honda Civic) and Werner Pieterse (Pieterse Racing/IDG/Valhalla Golf)
Class B’s fastest man was Morne Human (X35/Sydsen Golf) ahead of the Northern Bolt & Tool Peugeots of the Konig brothers Jono and Stuart.
Class C saw a welcome return to Jacques van der Zee (Tugwell tooling Citroen C2) ahead of rookie driver Andre Dannhauser (Opel Corsa) and Mel Spurr (Castrol/G & H/Turn 1/AKA Opel Corsa) taking up the last spot.
Race 1 and the reversed grid from the last outings results, saw the front row of class A very different to the actual qualifying, the cars spread out a little quickly but the pace set was fast… the line honours went to Brett Garland (Jonnesway/AutoBarn/Mag Lubric Honda Civic) ahead of the Citroen C2 of van Nieuwenhuizen and du Toits Honda.
Class B saw two new drivers join the series young Ethan van Heerden (Ford Fiesta) and Chris van der Westhuizen (CMS industrial Golf), while the race lead was taken by Human early on, and the fight for the other steps on the podium had the Konig siblings in their Peugeots.
In class C it was lady racer Mel Spurr who got to the front in no time taking Jacques and Andre Dannhauser with her…the three had a battle royale, but it was Spurr that got the flag ahead of the boys, fitting for woman’s day weekend.
Race 2 – and in class A The racing was a lot tighter than the first race of the day and eventually it was Pieterse who took the flag ahead of Garland and van Nieuwenhuzien in a battle throughout the full 8 laps.
Class B saw Nic Martin (RDG Opel Kadett) finally making the first start of any session for the weekend and taking the win ahead of the Human and the eldest Konig brothers Stuart.
Class C’s Ford Fiesta man Andre De Lange made it out on track after a gearbox change and got the lead after a small incident where class C got held up in turn 2 and he got the clear line, he took the flag ahead of van der Zee and Spurr.
Class A: Brett Garland, Hilton van Nieuwenhuizen, Werner Pieterse
Class B: Morne Human, Jono Konig, Stuart Konig
Class C: Melanie Spurr, Andre Dannhauser, Jacques van der Zee
The Premiere TV slot from this round will be on SuperSport on the Extreme Festival show on Friday the 28th of August on SS8 @ 18h30
The next round of the championship will be at the new Dezzi raceway in Port Shepstone – 29 August
