IN THE 1660 MOD CLASS…..

FH10This class had 19 entries and as usual 1660 Mod racing leaves it all on the track with very close, very tight and in your face race action. Wayne Skinner, Mariette Brand, Tersius v Tonder, JP du Plessis (jnr), Jacques du Plessis, Tiaan Scott, Dirk Bosman, Schalk vd Westhuizen, Willie Richter, Cedric Burger, Willem v Zyl, Shaheen Amlay and Bertus vd Westhuizen were only some of the big guns out there. Anton v Niekerk drove JP du Plessis’s car as JP(snr) was not well and I will say that for a rookie he did extremely well. Sadly for JP (jnr) he had mechanical issues and retired the Polo after race 1 and we never saw him again, also for Schalk vd Westhuizen with a small fire at the back of his Golf sent the marshals running for fire extinguishers to sort the problem out, however in the 2nd heat and finals there was an WAR of note between, v Tonder, Richter, Burger, vd Westhuizen, Bosman, v Zyl, du Plessis, Scott and Skinner like you’ve never seen before, these guys were crawling all over each other like a swarm of Bees yet left enough room for the next one to race in, the crowds were on their feet going moggy at what they were witnessing….

RR11

When the battle was over it was…. 1st Tersius v Tonder, 2nd Willie Richter, 3rd Jacques du Plessis.
