Our dear friend Clive Rice has lost the only battle he would ever lose in life… and it is the one with cancer.

This super soft and greatly competitive soul fought so hard, and stayed as positive as with everything he has ever done in life.

Clive raced in the 80’s and 90’s in a variety of different cars, after what started as a ‘celebrity challenge’ and then aside from the bug biting, his natural talent and skill, his competitive nature just took over and he became a great racing driver.

He then stopped racing for some time…


And in 2012 we got in touch with him to join us at our annual Passion for Speed in 2013. He jumped at the opportunity and joined us here at Zwartkops, where he would once again make his name on the race track, in the white Dart in the Legends series. He not only had fun, did exceptionally well, but also won the hearts of cricket and racing fans alike. From new young fans, to the fans and friends of yester year.

He even bought himself an AC Cobra and joined our Legends series for Sports & GT Cars and came racing more often.

A true gentleman who will be sorely missed by all.

May you race on…
