All revved up for V8 Supercar racing

THE highly anticipated V8 Supercars will be rushing onto the East London Grand Prix circuit on Saturday. With the return of these powerful V8’s, power is at a premium.

The day’s on-track action is set to be one of the biggest highlights on this year’s calendar. SAMCAR (South African Modified Car club) V8 Supercars is visiting EL for the first time since 2013.

Included in the day will be the Dunlop Historic Eastern Cape Regional championship, 26 competitors are expected from East London, Port Elizabeth, Queenstown, and Jeffreys Bay and 25  Modified Saloons will be battling it out for the Club championship.

Dunlop Motorcycles categories with a grid full of bikes will be challenging one another to see who will emerge as the best rider. With riders scraping their knees on the tar through the corners they are only centimetres from the limits, a little too much throttle and it all ends in disaster.

Off track will also be filled with exciting activities for all.

Pre sold tickets are R50 and available from Best Drive in Cambridge Street, Vincent Midas, Ian’s Auto, Spargs Beaconbay and the Border Motorsport office.

Gate entry is R80 on the day and under 12s enter free. For more information contact Jadia Oelofse (043) 736-4024 or
