The Classic Superbike Racing Association (CSRA) added extra excitement as they joined the KwaZulu-Natal Road Racing Club for a day of riveting racing at Dezzi South Coast Raceway on Saturday.
Thirteen CSRA riders competed in their national event and over 100 riders competed in the seventh round of the KwaZulu-Natal Road Racing Club Championship.
The Oslo Beach track is sporting new additions in the form of new spectator stands, and petrolheads witnessed thrilling two and four-wheel racing.
“We had a good day of racing,” club chairman Llewelyn Puren told eHowzit.
“The Super GT Class showed some growth again with a few Cobras joining us again. The Backdraft Cobra of Mike McCloughlin impressed with its 650HP 7.0 litre V8 muscle engine – a sight and sound that needs to be witnessed live at the track.
“Noel Haarhoff from the Classic Superbike Racing Association tried his luck against the local boys and put up a good fight on his classic superbike.
“The Modifieds Class continues to grow with new entrants pushing the class to 27 cars, making for magnificent spectatorship with a group of cars fighting for position all around the circuit.
“We would like to thank Jani from Natal Recovery Services for the sponsored Roll-back and support team for their professional and efficient manner in which they recover crashed or broken down vehicles.
“We also thank Roy Hallet and the Honda Umhlanga team for the use of their vehicle to do recovery of the motorcycles on circuit. A thank you also goes out to the team from CMH Suzuki Pinetown for the use of the Suzuki Safety Car leading the classes out on to track.
“Our next event is on the 13th of October with Ford and Friends coming out with Willie Hepburn to celebrate his 50th year in motorsport. Ford and Friends will be bringing out their treasured classics for all to see around the Dezzi circuit.”
