Hankook Formula Vee Round 4 – 16 June 2016 – Zwartkops Raceway – Race Report

A Dominant Performance From Van Den Berg

The 4th Round of the 2016 Hankook SA National Formula Vee Championship, produced more than it’s fair share of drama.

Hankook Formula Vee Round 3 – 21 May 2016 – Zwartkops Raceway – Race Report

The Hankook Formula Vee Series took to the Zwartkops Raceway in Pretoria for the third round of the 2016 season on Saturday 21 May. Qualifying couldn’t have been closer with the top eight all within the same second of each other. Peter Hills (Rhema 2) claimed pole position by 0.059 of a second ahead of Symm Grobler (Rhema).
Jaco Schriks (Rhema 2) would start from the second row with series rookie Lendl Jansen (Rhema 2) putting in an impressive performance to line up alongside his more experienced opponent.

Hankook Formula Vee Round 3 – 21 May 2016 – Zwartkops Raceway – Race Preview

The Hankook Formula Vee Championship will head to the Zwartkops Raceway in Pretoria for the third round of the 2016 season on Saturday 21 May. If the first two races of the year are anything to go by one can expect yet another action packed event on the cards.
Once again this popular single seater category will join the Extreme Festival Series for a bumper day of motorsport.

Peter Hills (Rhema 2) currently leads the National Championship standings with Gert van den Berg (Rhema 2) a further ten points behind him. Jaco Schriks (Rhema 2) is not too far behind the leaders and will no doubt be looking to gain a few points on the opposition.
The battle behind the leading trio is just as close with Lushen Ramchander (Rhema 2) a single point ahead of series stalwart Symm Grobler (Rhema). Greg Wilson (Forza) finds himself in sixth position and will most certainly be looking to make up for lost ground.

The second race meeting of the year saw us all at Phakisa Raceway, Welkom in the Freestate. Qualifying again proved to be really tight, with Gert Van Den Berg on Pole, followed by Peter Hills (Lube Fusion Rhema 2), and then the standout qualifying performance of Luschen Ramchander (Miami Products Forza).

Unfortunately young Liam Pienaar missed the apex on the second sweep due to the 7am rising sun, ran wide and rolled his car on the exit. A big shunt […]
