It is especially great to see the youngsters getting a ride.  Dorren Loreiro did reasonably well in the Junior Cup last year.  I haven't seen who, if any young Saffers will be in the Junior Cup this year.  Let's hope for a few again.  Last year we had three.  Dorren now moved to this class and it  Troy Bezuidenhout will race 600 SSP European Championship on a Kawasaki for the R2 Racing Team..

With the two Binders in Moto 3 and Moto 2 and Stephen Odendaal defending is title in the Moto 2 European Cup, we are well represented on the world circuits.  Pity no Saffer qualified for the Red Bull Rookies Cup for 2017.

Update:  Troy Bezuidenhout will now ride for Team Toth Yamaha in the WSBK SSP 300 class next year as well.  That makes three Saffers in that class.  Looks like our Regional and Club racing of the 250 Class is paying handsome dividends.

I don't know if they will be.  I am hoping they will be, but we will have to be patient.  First races only 24 - 26 Feb.

Indeed!  Especially since his team, at that time, had still not received the new R6.

Starting well for Sheridan Morias in the World SSP at Assen in the Netherlands.  FP1:  4th fastest.

World SSP300 see our Dorren Loreiro 9th fastest in FP1, but Bezuidenhout and Scholtz struggling way down in the late 20's.

Indeed!  *insert loud applause here*  Also, his team is still on the older model R6 waiting for Yamaha factory to deliver the new model.  It seems R6's are very, very hard to find   ...!   That, or the factory is worried about getting their arses kicked by the 2nd team!

EDIT:  #32SM went 3rd fastest in warm-up this morning.

Dorren Loreiro is 10th on the SSP300 grid.  Also a good one for him.

Wow!  Rather lekker weekend for Saffers on the race tracks today.

WSBK WSS600:  Hectic race with Sheridan finishing 5th, putting him 2nd in the championship.

WSBK WSS300:  Madness!  Moto3 all over.  Blink and you lose 5 places.  Our own Dorren Loureiro started well and fought at the sharp end all race.  Even led for some period, but finished 5th.  Troy Bezuidenhout finished P20 and Jarred Schultz P21.

European Championship Moto 2:  Steven finished 4th.  First race of the season of him defending his 2016 title.

Can you believe, during qualifying for the Argentina race, Brad had a huge tank slapper.  Apparently so violent that it bend the plate in his arm, which in turn broke the bone again.  He managed his 9th in the Argentina race with that broken arm!  Brad was operated on and new repairs done during the week after the race and he will be out for 6 weeks, missing between 2 and 3 races.  In the USA his bike was ridden to 14th by wildcard Ricard Cardus.  Brad is expected to definitely miss Jerez this coming weekend and possibly LeMans on 21 May.
