Sabie 109 TT
« on: November 25, 2020, 06:58:45 am »
Such a pity this initiative never came to fruition........

Fond memories of racing buddies on the big Beemers on this “course”. Always followed by a breakfast at Chris’ Woodsman.

Unfortunately some of the sections of this “course” have over the years deteriorated to the point where it is now dangerous to ride at speed

Long video, but great production and really enjoyed watching at again after all these years

Rupert Culwick, Thomas & a few other blokes worked hard to make that " RACE " happen, but politics, a lack of funding and non - commitment from authorities sank the plan  >:( We used to call it the ET TT in the making and still ride that  route quite often ( dodging some potholes along some stretches )  ;) The late Hartley Bulcock ripped that route apart on a Gen 1 Aprilia RSV Mille and very few modern Jap bikes with some competent riders ( racers ) could stay with him in those mountains  8)

Great video, thanks Cancius. A real pity they could not get this off the ground, imagine some of the legendary IOM TT racers screaming along those magnificent roads in Mpumalanga!
