Young Talent On View At Vodacom Speed Festival Superbike Enduro

Some up and coming young talent is likely to be on view at the Vodacom Speed Festival Superbike Enduro at AA Kyalami on Saturday.

The 60 minute Vodacom Superbike Enduro will share centre stage with the Vodacom Two Hour Endurance event for a wide variety of fourwheel machinery. The programme has also been bolstered by a Formula GTi event which will be run over two heats.

AA racing have also sweetened the pot for the motorcycle brigade by making available R20 000 to the Motorsport SA Motorcycle Racing Commission. AA Racing has also waived the entry fee for the bike entries.

"We are looking at an entry of around 25 motorcycles, with the event a platform for some young talent to gain exposure." SAID Piet Swanepoel, managing director AA Racing.

"Entries are likely to pick up in the early part of the week, and there should be some interesting rider combinations."

Entries received so far include top privateers Noel Haarhof and Mike Dickinson on a Dewalt Power Tools Suzuki, and Robbie Breakspear and Brent Ghelig on another Suzuki. Haarhof is a spectacular performer, and Dickinson has represented South Africa in the Nashua International Superbike Challenge test matches against Australia.

A large contingent of entries is expected from Northern Regions Championship competitors, with some exciting young talent on view. Entries are also expected from the likes of Gavin Ramsay, Garth Norris and Graeme van Breda, with a number of Dark Dog Superbike Championship riders also expected to team up.
