Dezzi Raceway – Port Shepstone

Dezzi Raceway – Port Shepstone will long be remembered by those who made the journey… competitors, race engineers and spectators.
Des Gudzeit achieved what many have failed to achieve for some thirty five years including the writer who evaluated, five potential venues to put a viable facility together in KZN – After five tries Zwartkops concluded that it would be a difficult and problematic venture. Des has taken the bull by the horns and made it happen. Now we as participative motorists have somewhere to go midst a very beautiful setting in character with the typography of KZN. Most competitors found the track very daunting as they “hit the deck” however, after the weekends racing apprehensions diminished and there were many smiles. The track is very challenging with twelve/ thirteen directional changes compared to Zwartkops’ eight. Dezzi is the same length as Zwartkops, but with more turns lap times were some fifteen to twenty seconds slower. There is still considerable development work that is needed. In some respects it does remind me of the old Roy Hesketh – short, tight, spectacular. Public support was good, a remarkable feature was the large number of “old timers” from the day of Hesketh who came to visit the Legend Cars… pitted on the runway. Their knowledge and passion had not left them, many recording exact incidents and details of the legend cars that once raced in the days of Hesketh. Some including the writer got quite emotional as the past was recalled. Saturday, 11th April 2015 is a “Day to remember”.
