South African national championship Rd3 – Report

South African national championship Rd3 – Report

The 3rd leg of the South African national championship was held at the KMR Track in Gauteng on the same brutal track that hosted the 2002 Worlds. The race was the perfect mid year event to test the local drivers’ skills and patience with the track being very unforgiving and every mistake got punished. Jason Hillcoat who made the change to Xray a few months back was unstoppable in Modified, his flawless precision driving was amazing to watch. In qualifying he took all three rounds to secure the TQ position for the weekend. On Sunday he raced a clean flawless race yet again to win both the first and second A final securing the overall win.
