Proof: Local Club Racing is alive and well in Gauteng
Icy weather and the showing of some rugby game on television conspired to keep the crowd figure low at Zwartkops on Saturday, when the venue hosted round five of this year’s Inland Circuit racing championships.
The faithful who did attend were treated to a day of exciting motorsport, again showing local club racing is alive, well and worth supporting.
The man of the meeting was Alberton youngster Devin Robertson, who reigned supreme in two of the day’s 10 participating racing disciplines

Robertson leads the Big Boss Auto Super
Saloon car field at Zwartkops on
Robertson set the tone during qualifying for the bill-topping Big Boss Auto Super Saloon Car races, when he took his Big Boss Auto Corvette to pole position.
He followed that by leading the opening race from start to finish, leading home Ben Morgenrood (GUD Ford Mustang), Steve Smith (Cool Cat Carriers Mustang), Franco di Matteo (Varta Batteries Jaguar) and Larry Wilford (Chev Corvette).
Robertson repeated his feat in race two, this time assisted by Morgenrood, who picked up a penalty for passing under a yellow flag and Di Matteo, whose Jaguar expired a lap from the end.
Matty Martins (Chev Lumina) finished second, ahead of Steve Smith, Larry Wilford and Steve Herbst (Prei Instruments Corvette).
Ismail Peck (Diff & Gearbox Mercedes SLK Rotary) led the non-V8 cars home on both occasions.
