Special race ready to rumble at Scribante

2018-09-13 06:01

THE Aldo Scribante Racetrack will have more than just a little spring in its step when motor racing returns to the track this Saturday with a special V8 race attracting entries from around the country.

Among the historic pre-’90 saloons race will be a legend of South African motorsport, Willie Hepburn in his fearsome former WesBank Modified Chevrolet Rekord V8.

Willie and his red and white supercar need no introduction, but there are a few locals keen to show him their taillights. This includes Knysna Hillclimb regular, Darron Gudmanz in his wild Ford Capri Perana as well as Brett Franklin in his Ford Granada Perana.

SA’s youngest historic V8 racer Danian Staffen races his Ford Capri Perana and 6-time SA Stock Car Champion Eddie Banks and Matthew Gudmanz will want to get their wailing Mazda rotaries ahead of the rumbling V8s.

It’s also all to play for in the Eastern Province Saloon Car Championship with tight championship tussles through the classes.

The EP Sports & GTs are another regular source of epic Aldo Scribante entertainment ready to take to the track on Saturday. So will be the AMSC Coastal Challenge and Aldo Scribante’s Street & Fine Cars racing class.

Two-wheel fans will also be catered for.

  • Tickets are R50 at the gate or book via www.westway.co.za.
