The 2022 Power Series at Killarney roars into action on Saturday February 12 with a full programme of races – and fun for the whole family.

Expect big fields for the headline Clubmans Saloons, as well as the Alert Engines GTi Challenge and BEJO Trustees Fine Cars Races. Then there’s the new Thunder Saloons class, an anything-goes category that’s all about big, nasty engines in wildly-modified saloon car bodies, which has proved to be just as big a hit with the fans as it is with the competitors.

The one-make V8 Masters and Makita Formula Supercars, where all the cars are identical and it’s all down to driver skill and nerve, always deliver close racing, while for purists there are races for Sports & GT cars and Formula Libre single-seaters

The two-wheeled heroes of the South Superbikes/Superbike Challenge/Masters/600s, the Strato Technology Clubman/Classic/Breakfast Run Motorcycles and the Bridgestone Super Twin Cup 650 and Super Sport 300 Motorcycles provide some of the closest, most exciting racing to be seen anywhere in the world.

There’s action-packed racing to suit everybody, kicking off with qualifying at 8am.

There’s ample parking all around the circuit, so take your beach umbrella or gazebo, picnic basket and cooler box, light up a skottel braai or park next to one of the brick braais – which are cleverly located at some of the best view spots around the racetrack.

There are a number of outlets around the facility serving hot snacks and ice-cold beverages, as well as children’s play areas where the youngsters can burn off their excess energy, including the famous Kiddies’ Korner, which is available for hire year-round; on race day children get to use it for free.

Tickets cost R80 for adults, R20 for pupils under-16 and children under-12 enter for free. Western Province Motor Club members also get in free.

Book through Computicket or pay at the gate. A mask must be worn at all times.
