The local rallycross scene has been growing over the past year and this weekend fans will get to see the two-liter front-wheel-drive class go head-to-head, as well as the E36 Cup for 3-liter rear-wheel-drive BMW 3 Series treating fans to thrilling sideways action.
The E36 cup should be spectacular with a high-quality field set to deliver robust, hard-fought antics as drivers toss their BMW's sideways through every bend. Pedalled by Killarney stalwarts the likes of Zack Groenewald, GTi champions Marco Busi and veteran Peet van der Walt and tuning wizard Robby Ferroli; Glen Phillips, Riaan Smit, Ryan Kat, Jason Kriel and Jacques Victor, expect local rallycross action of the highest order among that rear-drive gang.
And while those sideways sixes will deliver action-packed racing at its best, expect the front-drive brigade to deliver point-perfect driving as the likes of Steve Humble and his quick Kadett fights off the likes of Shawn Cope’s Volkswagen Golf stockie, Sean Kriel in a Daihatsu-engined pipe car and a gang of Golfs, Opels and Toyotas in chase.
The local rallycross classes will race two four-lap five-car qualifying races each on Saturday and another on Sunday morning, with the top six going through to a six-lap final in front of thousands of fans on Sunday afternoon.
