Racing fans ‘feel the rush’ at Dezzi’s


It was all systems go for the popular KZN Road Racing Champs at the Dezzi South Coast Raceway last Saturday. A great mix of cars and motorcycles raced at the track on the same day. Race enthusiasts from all over KwaZulu-Natal competed to claim bragging rights and top honours when they pushed their vehicles to the limit. Fast cars including Lotus 7s and saloon cars joined the motorcycles and their roaring engines followed by clouds of smoke were evident on the track.

A breakfast class race also took place, where racers could bring their track bikes (600s, 1000s etc.) to race some other newbies for some fun. The Drifters Class event, including Moto-X (MX) bikes with road tyres, put on a splendid show.The lunchtime kids' class event gave the little ones an opportunity to bring out their PW 50/80s or pocket bikes and try out the south end drift loop for some supervised fun.

Desmond Gutzeit, owner of the Dezzi South Coast Raceway said the event proceeded very well. “The challenge of road racing at excessive speeds was enough to give any competitor an adrenaline rush. Spectators also felt the rush as drivers put foot to the pedal,” said Mr Gutzeit. “The coastal venue is very popular among competitors and spectators, as many South African records have been set here. We were very pleased with the turnout as cars and bikes from across the country competed,” he said.

“Engine management and choice was of paramount importance and clever teamwork, the right combination of strategy and tactics, together with excellent driver and car performance were needed to win,” he explained.
