Last weekend saw Kyalami host its very first race meeting on the newly revamped circuit.

SuperHatch raced with the 111 Sports & Saloons classes D & E and put an impressive 47 cars on the starting grid…


After just 2 practice sessions on the Friday and the first being a wet session, we expected times to be all over the place… and that they were, in class A the pace was set at a 2.10:932 by Jono du Toit (Trans Africa Honda Civic) ahead of Morne Human (Ancro Building Projects Mini Cooper S) and Brett Garland (autObarn/Jonnesway Honda Civic)

Class B’s Nic Martin (RDG Opel Kadett) was quickest ahead of Zane van Zyl (JR Panel & Paint MK2 VW Golf) and Stuart Konig (Northern Bolt & Tool Peugeot 206) who rounded up the top 3 spots.

Class C’s pole man was Andre Dannhauser (Pro Auto Rubber/Protek Opel Corsa) ahead of Tyler Scott (Achilles/Jestik/Lopec Opel Kadett) and Alta van Wyk (Montana Tyre Mart VW Golf).

Race 1

With the combination of classes, the grid was based on qualifying times within class. Jono got off the line well and both him and Human battled nonstop for 6 laps with positions changing, but Jono eventually took the flag from Garland, while Human took 3rd place, with Ian Kotwal and Marius Roberts having a 8 lap battle just behind them.

Class B’s battle was between Martin and van Zyl for the lead from the lights to the flag, while Konig held onto 3rd place, with Baloyi (Trans Africa Honda Civic) on his tail and Alex Marques (AM Racing Golf) just behind.

In class C it was Dannhauser who continued his form from qualifying to take the win from Tyler and Alta as they had qualified, with Seth van Heerden (Nutritech Ford Fiesta) and Jaen Clark (Opel Corsa) never too far behind.

And the class A battle resumed but this time Human ensured he had enough brakes and took the race from start to finish, with Jono hot on his bumper the entire time and Garland with the best view in the house on this battle, Kotwal this time a lot closer to Garland, but finishing up in 4th.

In class B it was again Martin who got away off the line and made it count, van Zyl maintained the gap, but just couldn’t close enough, taking the 2nd spot again with Stuart again taking the final podium step, but this time Alex took 4th and the younger Konig, Jono took the 5th spot in his Northern Bolt & Tool Peugeot 206.

In class C – Tyler meant business and wasn’t going to let Dannhauser take the double, he took the win from him, but Alta again held onto 3rd place.
