Peter Bailey (Ford GT40) won the 45-minute Castrol Tourist Trophy race for Pre-1966 Le Mans cars
Both Van der Merwe and Groenewald returned to race two with different cars – Groenewald in a Mercury Comet and Van der Merwe in a Chev Belair. Groenewald and Van Niekerk Junior diced mightily for most of the race, until Van Niekerk spun his Galaxie at high speed coming into the pit straight.
Groenewald took the victory, followed by Cavalieri, Poulter, Lindenberg, Du Toit and Clive Densham (Alfa Romeo GTA).
Officially, the day’s main event was the 45-minute Castrol Tourist Trophy race for Pre-1968 Le Mans Sports and GT cars.
The opening corner saw Mike Briggs crash his Daytona Coupe and many competitors opted to do their mandatory three-minute pit stop right away. That led to a number of lead changes, but the race was eventually won by Peter Bailey (Ford GT40), followed by Mark/Jonathan du Toit Lola T70) and Donald Duncan/Steve Hart (McLaren).
Rain hit the first heat for Castrol Pre-1974 Sports Racing Prototypes, turning Zwartkops into a skating rink.
Various competitors opted to stop, rather than chance the conditions on slick tyres, while many who tried to race ended up spinning all over the place. In the end Andre’ Bezuidenhout (Porsche RSR) won, ahead of Keegan Campos (Porsche RSR) and Colin Ellison (Chevron B19).
Race two was run in brilliant sunshine and saw Franco Scribante (Chevron) take the flag ahead of Roman de Beer (Lola T70) and Jonathan du Toit (Chevron B8).
