Phakisa here we come, you are not missing out on the ZX10 Masters show as in the 2017 season! In
racing, there are always a few riders who are good at certain track, maybe because it is their home track
or maybe they just like a specific track. And talking about home tracks, Phakisa is the home of Pelo Seate
(#80); keep your eyes on him! There are also a few other riders who can go around Phakisa with their
eyes closed, like Stewie Christi (#65) who has instructed at so many track days there, that I think he has
Don’t close your eyes on 14 April though, the season has just started and the championship “fights” are
already heating up! In the Overall and Veteran’s championships there’s a zero (0) point difference
between the 2017 champion, Graeme van Breda (#1) and 2016 champion, Sven Grüne (#66), both with
90 points in their pockets. And in the Masters class Jonty Collard (#11) and Michael Smit (#49) both have
their eyes set on that 3 rd place with 58 point each. In the masters class Jaco Gous (#43) has grabbed up
all the winning points so far, but can Gareth Bezuidenhout (#22) catch him? The Extreme Veteran class
has all the riders with the most experience in the Club. Most of them have been members of the Club
since its inception; between them they have experience that will put the others to shame. We salute
you! (Pieter #17, Teddy #93, Brian #16, JLR #44, Andre #82, Stuart #83, Stewie #65, Rodney #42, JB #23,
Peter #64, Henk #69 and Hannes #15) Their first wives have keys and they love them to bits.
Before we all need tissues, back to the racing! Take a weekend off, pack your bags and come to Phakisa
on 14 April which is where the legends of circuit motorcycle racing in South Africa will be.
