But Jacques Masters Flower Power day Class B of Saturday's Flower Power Tour Bold Marine GTi Challenge races was all about Jacques Geldenhuys and his white Ferroli Golf 2 on Saturday, although it may have looked a little different from after qualifying, with a delighted Scott Hayes on pole for race 1 in his Jetta 2 from Shane du Toit (Golf 2 GTi) and Geldenhuys.

But contact between Thompson and Damien Lopez saw both cars damaged while Scotty Hayes qualified…
