The SuperHatch brigade headed off to Midvaal Raceway for their 8th round of the championship. Apart from the fact that a large number of the competitors had never raced there before, the race would be run in an anti-clockwise direction for the first time in SuperHatch history.
Qualifying started off early, and the regular names topped the time sheets. Jono du Toit (TAR Honda Civic) lead the charge in class A, followed by Brett Garland (autObarn/Jonnesway/Total Honda Civic) and Chris Davison (Opel SuperBoss). Class B saw Nic Martin (RDG/Care Care Clinic Opel Kadett) posting the fastest time, followed by Zane van Zyl (Credit Guarantee VW Golf mkII) and Andre Dannhauser (Pro Auto Rubber / Jestik Opel Corsa). In class C it was once again Shaun Besteman (RDG VW Golf mkI) setting the pace, followed by Alex Marques (Aces Spares VW Polo) and Barry Viljoen (BB Diagnostics Opel Kadett).
