Power series takes centre stage at Killarney

The Power Series is back at Killarney this weekend with round 4.

Round 4 of the 2022 Power Series at Killarney is happening this Saturday, June 4, less than three weeks before midwinter, which means there’s a good chance of rain on the day. But that won’t stop the racing, or dampen the spirits of the competitors, although it will make the results all the more unpredictable.

Killarney has a wide choice of covered vantage points from which to watch the action, one of which is the balcony above the Joubert Pits – right outside the Joubert Pits Lounge, home of some of the finest coffee in Cape Town.

The full programme of races will be headlined by Thermo Fires Clubmans Saloons, as well as the Alert Engines GTi Challenge and the combined BEJO Trustees Fine Cars and Laude Classic Cars.

Then there are the hugely powerful Pirelli V8 Masters, where all the cars are identical and it’s all down to driver skill and nerve (the AP347is V8s are seriously difficult to drive on a wet circuit) as well as the fifth running of the Ons Huisie 100 over 31 laps for Spitfire Furniture Sports & GT cars.

But the real heroes are the riders 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. You’ll see astonishing feats of riding skill and machine control on an unpredictable surface.

Spectators are free to move around throughout the day; grab a spot on the free shuttle service and watch the action from different vantage points. The pits are always open to spectators, so you can also see the cars and motorcycles up close.
