On track, top billing went to the G & H Transport Extreme Supercar contingent, and they duly produced the goods. Jaki Scheckter (Pablo Clark Ferrari F430 GT3) won the opening race, marginally ahead of Charl Arangies (Stradale Lamborghini GT3). Behind them Dawie Joubert (Lotus Exige Honda) took a last-gasp third place over Sav Gualtieri (OKI BMW M3), leading home Jonathan du Toit (TAR Ferrari F430) and Deon du Plessis (BPT KTM X-Bow). Scheckter’s job was made easier the second time around, when both Gualtieri’s BMW and Joubert’s Lotus suffered off road excursions, while the Arangies Lamborghini developed a progressive misfire. Scheckter won from Arangies, Joubert, Du Toit, Du Plessis and Nicky Dicks (Curvent Ferrari F430). Joubert’s Lotus, benefitting from superior tyre wear, handled better than the other front-running cars in the final race. That enabled him to snatch the lead at the start and keep it throughout the eight-lap heat. He was followed over the finish line by Scheckter’s Ferrari, Arangies’ Lamborghini.
Daryn Upton (Turn-Skill Kawasaki ZX10R) won the first Thunderbike race, finishing two seconds ahead of Nicolas Grobler (Golden Mile Estate BMW HP4), with Anthony Shelley (Fercor Kawasaki) third, another two seconds adrift.
