Visiting British driver Steven Morris will travel to the Free State Phakisa Raceway with mixed feelings this weekend. -

- The occasion will be Rounds 15 and 16 of this year’s South African Production Car Championship, which Morris contests in one of the Kaye-Eddie Racing team’s Class A BMW 330i models. -

- At the end of August, the youngster won his first local Production Car race at AA Kyalami. -

- “That was certainly good for my confidence, but less good in another, more practical area,” Morris said this week. -

- “When you win a South African Production Car Championship race, you automatically incur a weight penalty.” -

- “That means that I shall have to carry 75 kg of handicap mass in my BMW at Phakisa - like taking a burly passenger around,” he added. -

- Morris does feel that the Kaye-Eddie team’s efforts since the end of August could cancell the mass problem. -

- “We have been testing at both Zwartkops and the Midvaal circuits, and managed to set competitive times with the weight in place.” -

- “If I can run near the front in Saturday’s opening race and lose some of the mass, I shall certainly be looking for another victory in the second,” he said. -

- “I have nothing to lose and everything to gain by charging hard - this is the time of year to make yourself well known for all the right reasons,” he said. -
