What is SuperHatch?

The Car Care Clinic SuperHatch series, backed by Zwartkops Raceway, is designed for people looking for a cost-effective way of getting out on track and enjoying racing in the company of a group of like-minded indivduals.

The Spirit of SuperHatch.

  • Competitive racing
  • Affordable racing
  • Spectator appeal
  • Competitor enjoyment

The Theory behind SuperHatch

SuperHatch is based on the power to weight theory. We run four power to weight classes. This means that it does not cost a fortune, nor does it limit you, to bring your car to spec. The more power you have the more weight you run. That’s the simple SuperHatch formula. Only cars that run on road suspension are eligible to race. A bolt in roll-cage and 4pt-harness is required.

Basic Regulations

All cars are run on a designated dyno to determine the class according to its power to weight ratio. Cars must run standard shocks or Armstrong/Gabriel replacements. Springs are free but there is a minimum ride height. Only road legal tyres are allowed. Interior must retain passenger seat and standard dash. Engine make must match body shell (i.e. VW engine in a Golf). A full set of regs is available here.
