Red Square Kawasaki ZX-10R Masters Cup

The first round of the Red Square Kawasaki ZX-10R Masters Cup 2017 Championship season kicked off this past weekend at the Zwartkops Raceway in Pretoria. Part of the annual Day of the Champion, it promised to be an unforgettable day. The days leading up to race day were dogged by miserable rainy and cloudy weather. However, come race day the racers got greeted by a typical hot and sunny Highveld day.

Superpole got off to a fantastic start with Graeme van Breda (IVID Kawasaki) taking pole position. Second on the grid would be Sven Grune and locking out the front row in third was Jaco Gous. Gareth Bezuidenhout qualified in fourth with Teddy Brooke (Brooke Refrigeration) alongside him. Brian Bontekoning rounded up the top 6 starters on the grid.
