Second round thriller awaits

2018-03-20 06:01

Will the local riders be able to use home-track advantage to hold off the inland invasion? This is the question that will be answered when the SuperGP Champions Trophy makes its way down to the Western Cape for the second round of the 2018 championships taking place at Killarney Raceway on Saturday.

Capetonian David McFadden (RPM Centre/Stunt SA Kawasaki ZX10) bagged a second place in the SuperGP class in the opening round held at Zwartkops last month and is feeling confident of going one better than that after setting his personal best time around Killarney at a recent regional race. Out to stop him from claiming the top step of the podium will be Michael White (Consortium Shipping Yamaha R1), Morne Geldenhuis (Hi-Tech Racing Yamaha R1), who landed his first ever podium at Zwartkops, and defending champion Clint Seller (King Price Extreme/Bikefin Yamaha R1) who has finished on the podium in three out of the last four SuperGP races at Killarney.

Another local, Hayden Jonas, is one of the favourites in the Super600 category. He is still in the process of developing his Samurai Racing Yamaha R6, but stellar performances at the last regional meeting show that his team is very much on the right track. Opening round winner Adolf Boshoff (Uncle Andy Racing Suzuki GSXR600) and Blaze Baker (King Price Extreme/Bikefin Yamaha R6) are likely to be his closest rivals, although Byron Bester (Hi-Tech Racing Kawasaki ZX6), Aiden Liebenberg (Shop #74 / Fercor Construction Kawasaki ZX6), William Friend (Uncle Andy Racing Suzuki GSXR600) and Ricardo Otto (ORT-Online Kawasaki ZX6) cannot be ruled out. Jarred Schultz (Uncle Andy Racing Suzuki GSXR600) and Brandon Staffen (AJH Cooling/Keating & Jansen Kawasaki ZX6) are another pair who could use their home-track advantage to challenge the front runners.

Yet another Cape Town rider is likely to be at the front of the Super300 field. Kewyn Snyman (The Mag Workshop KTM RC390) completely dominated proceedings in the first round, taking both race wins.

The national classes will be supported by a full programme of regional categories. Friday is dedicated to practice sessions and qualifying with racing getting underway at 10:20 on Saturday. V Tickets at R100 are available at the gate or at www.supergp.co.za.
