If we told you that the Bold Marine Cape GTi Challenge was doing a reverse race this weekend, what do you imagine? Well, if you reckon that all the guys fitted five-reverse and one-forward ratios to their gearboxes and strapped giant rear-view mirrors to their cars … you’d be wrong. But they will race in the reverse direction at Killarney’s Saturday 18 June Power Series – in an anticlockwise direction, rather that clockwise where turn 5 becomes turn 1 and turn 1 becomes turn 5. Killarney also inserts a chicane in just after the pits (what would be just before…

A bleak, grey and cool winters day would never be enough to quell the spectacular action that the Bold Western Province GTi Challenge delivered as always in a weekend that never quite went to script as Jano van der Westhuizen took overall Class A, Peet van der Walt Class B and Bryan Morgan walked away with Class C honours. Qualifying saw Marco Busi on pole position in the Automan Jetta from the similar cars of old rival Chris Swart (Spongebob) and Class A graduate Mario Roux and Nian du Toit’s Cheaper Cars version after van der Westhuizen’s Kwikfix/Bessie Bester Motors…

Saturday’s Bold Marine Western Province GTi Challenge Class A action proved a race of attrition as several leaders ran into trouble through the day, of which Jano van der Westhuizen bounced back best to take overall honours for the day. Qualifying saw Marco Busi on pole position in the Automan Jetta from the similar cars of old rival Chris Swart (Spongebob) and Class A graduate Mario Roux and Nian du Toit’s Cheaper Cars version after van der Westhuizen’s Kwikfix/Bessie Bester Motors Polo was slowed by brake issues. Then du Toit’s blue Jetta suffered a fuel pump issue to come to…

Saturday’s Class B Bold Marine action was highlighted by a miscalculation that ended Jacques Geldenhuys’ unbeaten run in the class The first race was more of the same and even better for Geldenhuys and the attrition in Class A attrition meant that Jacques’ fourth Class B win on the trot also saw his Ferroli Golf 2 onto the overall podium albeit just a tenth of a second ahead of the returning Shane du Toit’s similar car, with Peet van der Walt (PSW Sport Polo), Damien Lopez (Polo), Scotty Hayes (Jetta) and Eden Thompson (Golf 2) next up and Roelof Tolman,…

Famous for its pretty much guaranteed action, Saturday’s Bold Marine GTi Challenge Class C That Golf 1 GTi Brat Pack races delivered as expected as Brian Morgan continued his winning streak since returning to the class last meeting. Morgan dominated the first race ahead of his Greatsoft Payroll teammate Jarred Simpson and Ebrahim Levy (Jive Armien Levy), who fought back after slipping off the track earlier. Gideon Serfontein (Goeie Hoop Onderdele) and Gert du Plessis (Cash Cars) were next up ahead of Francois Erasmus (QTech/Modjets/GAP), who fought off the determined Giordano Lupini (Monroe/Bakkie & Car magazine), Dillon Joubert (Powder Coating…

Ebrahim Levy and Giordano Lupini enjoyed a positive weekend in the third round of the Western Province 2016 Bold Marine Western Province GTi Challenge with both Garage 34 team’s Class C Golfs making a step forward following a less than successful weekend last time out. Fifteen-year old Lupini was delighted to score his first points with an impressive sixth overall in class for the day off a sixth place in the second heat, one position up on a more frustrating first race in the black and yellow #16 Monroe Racing South Africa/Bakkie & Car magazine Golf 1 GTi. Giordano started…

The second round of the Western Province GTi Challenge was hard on the Garage 34 Class C Golf team, but after a lengthy break from race action, the lads are doubly intent on making amends. Round 1 winner Ebrahim Levy and his #45 Jive Armien Levy Golf 1 GTi had a less than spectacular day last time out and despite crossing the line first in the second heat, Levy was penalised to end up seventh. “Things never went quite as planned last race,” Ebrahim admitted. “At least our woes lost us the success ballast we were carrying so we should…

He’s the man who likes to surf Indonesia, Hawaii and the Caribbean, swim and run in the mountains and sip summer Sauvignons by the braai on a Weskus beach and he feels blessed to…
