Champions descend on PE for Aldo races

THE Algoa Motor Sport Club, race division, hosts its final race event of the year tomorrow at the Aldo Scribante Race Circuit.

More than 140 entries from Cape Town, Johannesburg, East London and Port Elizabeth have been received for the bumper day of racing which includes the LUK 3-hour Challenge and PE200 motorcycle endurance event.

The event is boosted by the entries received from some of South Africa’s most successful drivers and riders from current and past years.

Michael Stephen the reigning South African Class-A production cars champion and only person to win the title three years consecutively will be driving his derestricted Audi S4.

Also entering the event is multiple winning SA champion Tony Martin, who won the Daytona 24-hour race in America.

Martin still holds the outright lap record for Aldo Scribante driving his Formula Atlantic with a lap time of 55.6 seconds.

Dave McFadden from Cape Town, who competes in the world superstock championship, is entered to show the local racers how the competitors race on the international circuit, while local rider Robbie Breakspear who competes in the SA superbike championship and national ZX10 cup, is determined to show the quality of the local riders.

Chassen Bright and Simon Moss, both national karting champions, have entered as well, as their national commitments start to relax and they can race on their home circuit.

The main two events of the day are the LUK 3-Hour endurance event for cars and the historic PE200 endurance event, where the prize is the floating trophy made of silver worth more than R1-million.

These annual races always deliver action on the circuit with glowing brake discs and sparks from race cars being taken to the limit.

Action in the pits is guaranteed by driver and rider changes, refueling, tyre changing and damage repairs as the race takes its toll on cars and bikes alike.

Entry fee is R50 per vehicle. Sprint races start at 10am, PE200 at 3:45pm and the LUK 3-Hour at 6pm. For more information, contact Adin Wilson at 084-447-0908 or visit www.amsc.co.za
