Joelsen & Kotze win African Cup

Joelsen & Kotze win African Cup

Hosted at the TRAP venue in Pretoria South Africa, the African Cup is now the toughest and most prestigious race in Africa. In the 200mm Nitro Touring Class Taki Dermatis was top qualifier with Christian Fourie 2nd, with all drivers running a 10 minute qualifying format. The grueling 45 minute final saw Henri Kotze take the lead early on and continue to lead throughout the tough race, held under very hot conditions. Kotze took the win by 5 laps, followed home by Mugen team mates Taki Dermatis in 2nd and Christian Fourie in 3rd. The hour long 1/8th scale final saw most drivers do a tyre change at the halfway mark, with Top qualifier Wayne Joelson & Jacques Libenberg having an early battle, with Hein Kotze close behind. Jacque ran into mechanical problems which allowed Wayne to cruise to victory, finishing ahead of Jacques Liebenberg in 2nd and Hennie Kotze in 3rd.
