ALGOA Motorsport will be holding Round 4 of the Regional Championships on May 14 at the Aldo Scribante Circuit.

One of the highlights of the day is the return of the Dunlop Eastern Cape Historic series to the Aldo Scribante Circuit.

Chris Radloff, current leader on points, is going to have to pull out all the stops with back-in-form Wayne Botha showing real pace in East London. The BMW 2002TI of Rob Rowe has proved to be quick around Aldo Scribante and will certainly be a contender for the class win.

Class A should see Derek Boy from Queenstown in the Chev Can AM take honours. Brendan Smith and Jason Greyling, both local lads, will be looking for victory in class B. Class C should see Ryno Burger and Shaun Rudolph fighting for the win.

Class D has proved to be the most competitive class with no fewer than 7 cars going head to head. Some spectacular racing is expected with the likes of Ford Escort, Fairlane, Capri, Anglia, Alfa Sprint, Alfa GTV, Opel Kadett, Toyota Corona, Nissan Skyline, Datsun SSS, BMW 2002TI and of course the Chev Can Am in action.

The Marque Cars; Street and Fine Cars will also take to the track, and the day will end with a 45 min Endurance Race for Sport and GT cars.

The motorcycle rounds promise to provide lots of action, with some of the Unlimited and 600cc riders taking to the track in the Historic Motorcycle category as well, for the first time.

This category is really taking off locally, as well as nationally, with the newly formed Classic Superbike Racing Association, incorporating events such as the SATT; All Motorcycle Race Day at East London on 28 May and the ever popular PE200 on November 19, 2016.

Spectators will now be able to see some of their favourite riders competing in the modern as well as historic events.

Rory Potgieter, from East London, will be in his debut ride, taking over his father, Irfaan Johnson’s Pre-sling. Irfaan will be debuting his latest Historic motorcycle, a 750cc Pre-Sling, with an 1100 motor, fondly known as the “Seven-eleven”, at the event.

Spectators should note that the Zone 2 Coega entrance is currently closed for an upgrade, so they will need to take the No 764 Coega IDZ turn-off, and proceed to Neptune Road. They should turn right, and go through the Security Boom, then keep straight until they reach Lwandle Road, where they should turn right and continue on to the circuit entrance.

Entry for spectators is R50 per motor vehicle for an action-filled day of entertainment suitable for the whole family.

There will be the usual catering stalls, as well as a braai fire in the bar, with braai packs on sale and a full bar service.
