Clean Bill Of Health For AA Kyalami
The AA Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit has been reissued with an FIM Grade A license, valid for two years, following a circuit inspection this week.
FIM Safety Officer Claude Danis, along with World Superbike Championship riders representative Franco Uncini, a former world champion, gave the AA Kyalami circuit a clean bill of health. The circuit inspection was standard practice prior to the third round of the WSBK championship at the Midrand complex from April 5 to 7.
“ We are delighted that Danis has given us a clean bill of health,” said AA Racing managing director Piet Swanepoel.“ The work Danis has asked for can be classified as routine maintenance, and at this stage we are ahead of the game when it comes to organising the April event.”
The inspection also provided a bonus for AA Kyalami and a local paint manufacturer. Danis was impressed with the quality of the paint used for circuit and kerb markings, and has asked that AA Racing and the supplier supply paint to other circuits hosting rounds of the WSBK series this year.
This year’s World Superbike championship will also feature rounds of the World Supersport and Superside World Sidecar Championships. Negotiations are also underway with the Flammini Group, which operates the world championship, over admission prices.
“ Times are hard at the moment, and we are looking to negotiate ticket prices that are reasonably priced for an event of this stature, and which provide value for money,” said Swanepoel.“ An announcement on admission prices can be expected in due course.”
