Zwartkops Raceway was the setting for the seventh round of the 2016 Inland Championship this past weekend with non-stop action highlighting another brilliant race day.
As usual the INEX Legends series kicked off proceedings with an action packed first race. Divan Myburgh (Pro) took an early lead ahead of Clinton Bezuidenhout (Young Lion) and Seef Fourie (Pro). Fourie took the lead on lap two with Lonika Maartens (Semi-Pro) and Myburgh hot on his heels. Maartens grabbed the lead on the penultimate lap of the race and only just held on for the win ahead of Fourie and Myburgh.
The second race picked up where the last one left off as Maartens took an early lead ahead of cousins Divan and Llewellyn Myburgh. Divan gained the lead on lap two with Fourie coming through to claim second by lap six. A last lap tussle with Divan handed the victory to Llewellyn with Anro Stadler taking second ahead of Bezuidenhout.
The third and final race continued the non-stop action with Fourie taking the lead early on. Determined to make up for the lost points in race two he put his head down and went on to take a comfortable victory ahead of Stadler and Divan Myburgh.
