THE legendary South Africa rally and track racing champion, Sarel van der Merwe (71), also known as Supervan, will make his return to Aldo Scribante Raceway in Port Elizabeth on Saturday when he takes part in the bumper race meeting.

Supervan will be participating in the historic and retroracing class, driving a high powered Mazda RX 2 Rotary race car.

The event, which has received over 200 entries so far, will start with sprint races at 9am for motorcycles and cars, while the afternoon is filled with motorcycle endurance races made up of the Klinicare PE 100 of 20 laps for historic, powersport, KTM, masters and breakfast run riders, followed by the Old Mutual International 40 lap PE 200 that will feature the high-speed 600cc, BOTTs and Unlimited Riders.

At 6pm the cars will take to the circuit for the start of the Midas Three-Hour Endurance Race. In all the endurance races, the competitors will have to make at least one compulsory pit stop.

During the stop, there will be driver and rider changes, while their vehicles are refueled, tyres are changed and the technicians working against the clock to get competitors back on track as soon as possible.

Entry to the event is R30 per person and free to children under the age of 12.
