Historic car racing returned to the Zwartkops circuit near Pretoria in style on Saturday, with both venerable vehicles and veteran drivers thrilling the crowd.

The event’s biggest crowd drawcard was the return of local motorsport maestro Sarel van der Merwe, driving a 1964 Liqui Moly Ford Galaxie in the races for SKF Pre-1966 Legend Saloon Cars.

Van der Merwe was on point, planting the Galaxie firmly on pole position during Saturday morning’s official qualifying session. He followed that by leading the opening race from starting lights to chequered flag, narrowly ahead of youngster Jeffrey Kruger (1964 Ford Comet) and Jonathan du Toit (1965 TAR Chev Nova). Mark du Toit (1957 Chev Bel-Air), Neil Lobb (Pablo Clark 1963 Ford Galaxie) and Willie Hepburn (1965 Chevelle) rounded out the top six places.
