On sunday the 27th January, the southern speedway riders club held their Summer cup challenge, at the Walkerville dirt oval, just south of Johannesburg.

With a mixed bag of classes, the racing was intense, as all classes raced for points to advance into the semi final and finals.

Gio nunes had a brilliant day, winning all 3 of his heats to qualify for the finals. Veteran Bobby Devine, won 2 and got 2nd to get second gate choice in the final. Damien Devine, returnig after writing his matric and Grant Frank, a up and coming future stars rider finished off good day and moved straight into the final. The honors went to Nunes. With Damien chasing close for second, and Bobby getting the 3rd place after a puncture rear wheel on the back straight lost him the 2nd position.

Jason Cole, having won his first 2 heats, lost control on the final bend to finish with first choice in the consolation final, hansie Kleinhans another veteran held off an unlucky Ashley Brill, who suffered 2 punctures in 2 heats to take 3rd, with younger brother Robin Brill, riding a junior 250cc finishing last.

As usual the Aussie sidecars had the crowd on the feet for every second, cheering overall winners Gordon Butler and jockey Donovan. Husband and wife team of Edwin and Michelle scored second place, Johan and Boero Le Roux third, Kallie and Konrad britz, the father and son team coming 4th. Reigning champions Derek Hilliar and Gordon wrath, had troubles getting past the front group in this 10m handicap challenge, with first timers Lyle Kotze and Styles Walton finishing the field in 6th place.

Thanks to Rob Devine.
