JUST a year ago, national superbike championship racing returned to KwaZulu-Natal after a 25-year absence. On Saturday, 19 September the DEOD SuperGP­ Champions trophy will return to the province, this time to the recently renamed Dezzi­ South Coast Raceway in Oslo Beach.

With three of the four championships still to be decided, William Friend secured the inaugural SuperJunior title in the last round. There will be close action at the 2.8km circuit which is characterised by steep elevation changes.

Owned by Des and Louise Gutzeit, the circuit overlooks Oslo Beach. It has been built using part of a runway which evolved to include facilities for drifting. Extensions to turn the facility into a fully-fledged racing circuit, the only permanent one in KwaZulu-Natal, were completed earlier this year and a number of successful events have already proved to be a hit with local race fans.

Riders will be on the circuit on Friday, 18 September to familiarise themselves with the new circuit during the official practice sessions. Qualifying and two races for each category – SuperGP-SuperM, Super600 and SuperJunior – will take place on the Saturday.

Tickets are R70, available online at TicketPro and or can be bought at the gate.

Visit the DEOD SuperGP Champions Trophy website for time schedule as well as live streaming on the day. - Supplied.
