The fourth round of the 2016 Inland Championship saw the Trofeo Challenge and Midvaal Historic categories head to the popular Zwartkops Raceway on Saturday 16 July with the biggest entry of the day. Another impressive entry of no less than thirty entries made for some action packed racing.
Pole man Martin Botha (Datsun GX Coupe) took the lead ahead of Jackie Morrison (Ford Escort) and Brendon Parker (Datsun GX Coupe). Mossie Mostert (Datsun GX Coupe) slotted into fourth position with Johan Prins (Datsun 160U) and Reghardt van Zyl (Alfa GTV) hot on his heels.
A determined Parker was up to second place before the end of the first lap. John Hendriks (Alfa Sud) was the best of the Trofeo Challenge brigade as he slotted into eighth position. Van Zyl picked up one spot when he passed Prins on lap three.
With numerous battles throughout the field there was action aplenty. When the chequered flag came out it was Botha who claimed a comfortable Overall and class E victory over Morrison and Parker. Fourth placed Mostert took the class F honours with eleventh placed Peder Jensen (Datsun 1200) taking class G. Fifth placed van Zyl took the class X win with sixteenth placed Henry Fourie (Alfa Berlina) taking class H. Hendriks held on to take the Trofeo Challenge win in tenth place overall.
