Title: Local Super Motard Racing
Post by: FlexZA on November 06, 2018, 08:34:50 am
The local short circuit scene is growing massively and this year was my first year racing a super motard.
Most fun on 2 wheels ever.

We do not have gravel/tar tracks in the series at this stage. All on tar at this stage.

I race an old RMZ 450 converted as a motard.

Superbike Mag is hosting the races. Clinton is doing a great job promoting and organizing the races.
So far there are a few circuits we race at through out the country all on short circuits. Zwartkops, Vereegening, Polokwane, iDube.
The entry is R800 per race.

There are quite a few different classes. SM1, SM1X, SM2 and then mini super motards, pocket bikes, cbr 150 and the clubman class.
We had close to 100 entries each race with just the Large super motards

Had a couple of races in 2012....

Absolute blast!!!!!

Then there were some accusations of cheating at Pine Town and it all fell flat.

Glad to hear it is on the up again!!

The Thunderbike series is dwindling and costing a fortune to race.
So most of the SBK guys are coming over to the Super Motard racing as well

I am selling my RMZ to upgrade a bit. Wanting to take the sport a bit more serious than what I anticipated I would.

This is the best way to get into fun and affordable racing in a scene that is growing every single race and hope that someone on here might want to get into it!

The next race this Saturday at VKC in Vereniging is going to be great. Hopefully the rain just holds out a bit!
It is really a very fast track(as far as short circuit racing goes)

Had one ride on the CRF before the race, so should be interesting!

It is indeed right on top of a hill. About a 15 minutes drive on dirt roads off the main road to get to the track. NO idea why they decided to build it there. If it was not on our calendar I would never have gone there.
Can imagine that for usual races there are not many spectators there as it is quite a mission to get there. But the track itself is amazing!

Cost to watch is free, Qualifying usually starts at around 08:00 and then the racing itself at 10:00.
It is the whole short circuit series as usual, so mini motos, clubmans, junior motards, SM2 and SM1.

Was a tough but good day of racing.
Missed the line up of the 1st heat so ended up starting from pit lane.
Got a 4th place in heat 3 and a 7th over all for the day.

Such a random place to build a track though. NO idea how they decided on that spot in the middle of nowhere.
Did you guys take a leisurely ride around the track?

Yeah, of course we rode around this unique track  >:D.... We'd ridden on some singletrack next to the gas pipeline that's laid down there, and it comes very close to the track where it's at it's lowest point. Thanks to The Badger and his very adventurous navigational attributes...was a fun ride. :ricky:

Is it a National that's happening there in July? I must come through...haven't watched motards in years. To be honest I thought iDube was no longer hosting motards.

The Pinetown street race sadly doesn't happen anymore, that was good, I loved that.
