Phakisa Event on 26 April Promises another Thrilling Day’s Racing

The battle for the 2014 Hankook SA National Formula Vere Championship, resumes at Phakisa on the 26th April. Heading the Championship log, by a single point, four times SA National Formula Vee Champion Alan Holm (Office Direct Lasersprint Rhema 2) will be hard pressed, to keep the pack at bay. In the second heat, of the previous round of the Championship, at Zwartkops, there were up to seven cars in the lead bunch, at one stage and with the slipstreaming opportunities offered by the Phakisa circuit; the battle could be even closer.
Those expected to challenge Holm, include the 2012 SA National Formula Vee Champion Jaco Schriks (Lasersprint Office Direct Rhema 2), the evergreen 2004 SA National Champion Symm Grobler (Rhema 2), Formula Vee Association Chairman Greg Wilson (Reflex Solutions Forza), three times SA National Formula Vee Champion Peter Hills (Renexcon Rhema 2), Michael Mastnak (Reflex Solutions Forza) and Gert Van Den Berg (BP Nantes Motors Rhema 2).
