The fourth round of the Power Series at Killarney on Saturday includes an unusual entry from Bellville’s national champion Kosie Weyers in a bottom of the range class C Golf 1 in the Jive VW GTi Challenge, that is certain to increase the attraction of this exciting category, regardless of the weather conditions.

But while Weyers will bring the best out of class C drivers like Paul Simon and Craig du Toit at the lower end of the field, the headline class A battle between Nian du Toit, Christopher Swart and Durbanville star Stiaan Kriel, could be even closer.
With the Midas magicians having had time to recover from the chaos that characterized the first Clubman race during the third round of the title chase, it’s going to be a case of “Deutschland Uber Alles,” at the head of the field.

In this one, Andre Johnson’s A4 Audi turbo is likely to be the target, as Danie van Niekerk (BMW 325), Ebrahim Levy (BMW M3) and Shando Hendricks (Golf GTi) take up the chase. There should be more variety behind them where Wayne Wilson’s rare Nissan Maxima and Ernie “Lightning” Leite (VW Caddy pickup), are the favoured drivers in classes B and C.

The return of the brutal Masters V8’s after they missed the previous round, is going to be a welcome feature of the meeting. And with joint top scoring Craig Jarvis currently competing in Europe, Marcel Angel will be able to move out on his own providing he can deal with former titleholder Fabio Tafani and Knysna’s Jaguar Hill Climb hero Charles Arton.
A turnabout in class A of the Big Foot Express Sports and GT category as we go to press, sees Dawie Joubert’s GT3 Cup as the sole defender of the Porsche faith while he prepares to take on a pair of threatening Junos in the hands of Francis Carruthers and Steve Humble.

Veteran Louis de Jager (Lola T212) and Dave Alhadeff (Panos Esperante) are likely to dispute class B, while Paul Beachy Head’s impressive R8 Audi is going to be a welcome addition in class C. Watch out for Brad Wadeley, Gareth Easom and Craig Nunns in the Gold, Silver and Bronze classes of the one make Makita Supercar championship.

Finally, Eric van der Merwe (Porsche 944 turbo) and Ray Cooper (Ford Escort GT) are expected to lead the challenge for overall and Index of Performance honours in the Charl Electriclal Eng. Fine Car contest. The first of the 16 races on the programme is due off after the final practice and qualifying sessions, at 10.00.
