Mike Wiseman takes Rd3 of SA Nats

South African Championships round 3

Serpent have a report online from the 3rd round of the South African 1/8th and 1/10th scale Nationals held at the very large Durban track recently. In qualifying it was Mike Wiseman all the way, taking the TQ with his Serpent 720 and 960 respectively continuing his dominant form from the first 2 rounds of the National series. In the 1/10th scale race it was a great dice between Mike Wiseman and Travis Carlyle, as they fought for the win with Wiseman eventually coming out on top. Finishing 2nd, Carlyle now leads the Championship with one round to go while another local youngster, Shaun White, rounded off the podium in 3rd. The 1/8th scale was fought out at a furious pace with four drivers contesting the lead, with Mike Wiseman, Hein Kotze, Jacques Liebenberg and Wayne Joelson never more than a few seconds apart. At the 20-minute mark, Kotze and Joelson came in to change tyres, which saw them lose time on Wiseman and Liebenberg who opted to run the full distance on one set. Liebenberg eventually dropped back a bit, giving Wiseman the win by over a lap at the end of the 45 minute final from Joelson in 2nd and Liebenberg 3rd.
