‘Action is going to be frenetic’ for road racing champs at Dezzi Raceway

Sanjiv Singh will be giving Steytler a serious run for his money.

ACTION at Dezzi Raceway, Oslo Beach on July 14 is going to fast and furious with competitors all hoping to bag valuable KZN Road Racing Club championship points with just three race meetings left in the season.

Each race gives competitors two heats with 25 points up for grabs in each, so things are far from decided and each point worth more than Bitcoin.

The closest contest currently is in the Modified category in Class C where Tim Kinsey (VW Golf) holds a slender five point lead over Gary Brown (Ford Escort) with Barry Liggins (Dart BMW) not entirely out of the picture 42 points off the leader – and 50 points are up for grabs over the two heats on each race day.

Brown missed the opening round of the series in February, but has come on strong since his return and has won five of the six races, with Kinsey consistent in second place, still benefiting from the bonus maximum points haul early in the season when Brown was absent.

Pierre-Richard Potgieter (VW Golf) leads the Class B of the Modifieds.

A spanner in this works could be Bruce Avern-Taplin in his Toyota Corolla. He won a heat at the last outing and could just shake things up again on Saturday.

Class B of the Modifieds is also hanging on a knife-edge with Pierre-Richard Potgieter (VW Golf) just nine points ahead of John Montanari (VW Golf) – but both were beaten to the line at the last meeting by Leo Branders (VW Golf).

Despite missing two race meetings, Branders lies third in the series with enough points still on offer to pose a major threat to the top two.

The next one to watch is the Superbike Master Class where an intense tussle is happening between series leader Matthew Steytler (BMW 1000) and Sanjiv Singh (Kawasaki 1000).

Steytler is currently on 162 points to the 150 of Singh, who missed the season opener to gift Steytler a bag full of points.

In the Super Motards, Hein Etzel (Yamaha 450) has to hold off an increasingly strong challenge from Jesse Boshoff (Husqvarna 450) to stay ahead, but Craig Bishop (KTM 450) and Karl Etzel (Yamaha 450) are well within striking range.

Racing starts at 10am and entry for spectators is R80 and R50 for kids under 12.
