With entries that include the best from Ferrari, Lamborghini and Aston Martin, the national Extreme Festival at Killarney on Saturday promises to match the excitement of last year’s final round of the World Rallycross Championship at the same venue.

Although it’s not the 007 model driven by James Bond in the movies, Charl Arangies’ Aston Martin Vantage is the latest seven-speed, six-litre V12 rocketship that is due to make its first appearance at Killarney in the G&H Extreme Supercar races.

Described as the ultimate predator, it has a claimed top speed of over 330km/h and was the winner of the GTE Pro class at the Le Mans 24-hour race last year.

And together with other brand names like Porsche, Lotus Turbo, V10 Dodge Viper and BMW M3, these events should be awesome­.

Then there are the Sasol Grand Touring Cars (GTC), which were involved in so many crashes during the first round of the festival at Kyalami last month that the fans were shouting: “Crash bash, bangers ‘n smash!”

But it was really exciting – and they wanted more.

The first race was won by Gennaro Bonafede who was in great form in his Sasol BMW. However, the second race had to be stopped twice before Simon Moss (Engen Extreme Audi) was first across the finish line, after somehow threading his way through the chaos on the track.

The Cape’s Johan Fourie was at his aggressive best until he was wiped out during the second event. But with a home circuit advantage, his EPS Couriers BMW is likely to be a threat on Saturday.

With a field of all-new two-litre, turbocharged, six-speed Polo ponies, the one-make Engen Polo Cup category promises to be a cracker. The first race at Kyalami belonged to Jeffrey Kruger who finished ahead of Jonathan Mogotsi and Juan Gerber. In their second outing, Gerber and Mogotsi became involved in a tremendous battle. Unfortunately, this ended abruptly when they crashed into each other and were both forced to retire. Kruger then reclaimed the lead and went on to finish ahead of hotshot lady driver Tasmin Pepper.

The advantage of a spell spent competing in Europe will favour Stuart White in the Investchem Formula 1600 category. However, Cameron O’Connor was not far behind him at Kyalami and the dry conditions at sea level may be in his favour.

The programme also includes races for Hankook Formula Vee, Makita Supercars, V8 Masters and RST Suzuki South motorcycles.
