RACE two is over and done with and the brothers Naicker are once again at the fore with a win from Winburg. Liberated in fine weather at 7.15am, the first arrival was clocked at 11.56 attaining a velocity of 1229.382 metres per minute to gain the first position, followed by more arrivals at 12.08, 12.18pm to fill second and third places.

Wait a minute, what is this - newcomer Chris Uys checking into fourth place at 12.30pm. at a velocity of 1067 metres per minute, followed by the Mafia.

Just to rub Old Grizzle's nose in the dirt, Chris Uys clocked another at 12.55 - a case of the pupil teaching the teacher.

At last the Old Grizzle's bird put in an appearance at 12.57 and after a long wait a second bird came waltzing in at 15.17. The Naickers, not to be outdone, clocked the final at 15.20.

Next we fly from Bloemfontein, a distance of approximately 425kms, which all being well, should be a flying time of five and a half hours.

Latest on Attie Joubert on Sunday is that he has had another operation.

Get well soon Attie, we are praying for you.

Results: Naicker Bros: 1; 2; 3; 5; 9: 1229.386; 1176.945; 7.410; 1029.229; 711.552.

Chris Uys: 4;6; 1067.147; 1015,252

Trevor Tatham: 7; 8th: 1008.709; 716.160.
Good flying.
