SuperHatch was at Midvaal for the second time this year and showed just how strong we are by fielding 31 cars, certainly the biggest field of any category.

Warm up
With the class and overall championships getting closer and the end of the season fast approaching every point is crucial. The fastest driver in each class in warm-up is normally awarded one point but this could not be done because the timing was not working properly! 5 drivers appeared on the timing list without any times, another 4 were not even on the list even though they were on the track and some of the times were nowhere near realistic! So the club had no option but to disallow ALL times robbing drivers of valuable points. Usually, the grid is formed by taking the top 5 in each class from the previous event and reversing the finishing order, however the rest of the field goes on warm up times but this was not possible on a day like this so we had to go on the championship points.

SuperHatch was back at Kyalami for the winter races and we had another fantastic entry of 29 cars. Even with this number we were still combined with other categories, the MPC with their 17 cars for the first heat and Silvercup with their 15 cars for the second heat. This was done to keep the entry cost within affordable limits.

So SuperHatch did what SuperHatch does best and had fun, made the most of the day, and put on a great show.

Warm up saw Mark Silverwood (OKI MINI) post the quickest time in class A ahead of Mark du Toit’s Honda Civic (TAR) and rookie driver Brett Garland (DT Formwork) Honda Civic in third. Class B went to the ASAP Peugeot 206 of Hilton van Nieuwenhuizen from Chris Davison in the Opel Superboss and Nic Martin (RDG Opel Kadett). Class C’s quickest man was Jeff Langeveldt (Fury Ford Fiesta) from James Menin (West cars Opel Kadett) and Vernon Visagie’s Fiat Palio (Uno’s Africa’s spares). Class N’s Anvar Haffejee had a lonely outing being the only class N car there.
