Historic racing gears-up for date with Red Star





Inland historic car racing will return to the Red Star Raceway near Delmas this Saturday, with four racing disciplines in action.

Heading up proceedings will be two races for Ben Morgenrood  Pre-1980 HRSA saloon cars.

Top contenders should include drivers like Stefan Puschavez (MI Investments Porsche 911 RSR), Stewart McLarty (Morgenrood Ford Escort XR3), Andre’ ten Napel (TNMC Volkswagen Scirocco), Sean Hepburn (AASA Datsun 1200 GX), Tihan van Rooyen (Porsche 924), Gavin Lundin (Silverguard Datsun 1200 GX), Rene Janse van Rensburg (SV Tech Ford Escort), Johan Jacobs (Olifantsfontein Alfa Romeo GT Junior), Stuart Konig (Northern Bolt Volkswagen Scirocco) and Jannie van Rooyen (Pro Auto Rubber Volkswagen Scirocco).

With the races to be held in the anti-clockwise direction, many competitors will find the going tough around Red Star’s extremely twisty layout.

The event’s two Randfontein Pursuit handicap races will bring a wide variety of cars to the party, with the final two laps of each promising pretty tight action.
