Chilly but Hot Racing at Killarney

9 August 1945 is possibly the date that had the greatest influence on the world as we know it today as this was the day that Bockscart dropped Fat Boy on the Japanese city of Nagasaki, forcing the unconditional surrender of the Japanese and the ending of World War II. That was seventy three years ago, and still the world cannot live in peace.

Peiser wins All Tar Rally

John Peiser (Plattekloof) and Weston Peiser (Plattekloof) showed their class on Saturday 4 August 2018 when they steered the Speed Pro Cycling Components 425 WPMC S5 Subaru Impreza 4x4 Turbo 2.0 to a convincing overall victory on the Killarney All Tar Rally, round five of the 2018 Western Cape Rally Championship, by winning all six stages.

All Tar! With a touch of gravel when you run wide or outbrake yourself, but take note! The scenery at the Killarney International Raceway are fixtures, rather solid concrete fixtures in most cases and you are advised to avoid making contact at all times!

Fun in the Mud

Many moons ago the Pop’s Robert Interclub Championship saw members of the five Rally Clubs in the Western Cape present rally sprints, gymkhana and regularity rallies contest in a fun series where road cars and almost any competition car could be utilised by a variety of drivers and navigators without breaking the bank. Slowly but surely the club element (such as the club award in each regional and national rally), was eliminated, for reasons that can be debated for days on end and the Pop’s Robert series was discontinued.

WMPS5 Killarney

Undoubtedly the focus of the world was on the dramatic Thailand Tham Luang Cave rescue of the Wild Boar soccer team and their coach and though a diver sadly lost his life the efforts of everyone under the guidance of Australian SAAS Med STAR anaesthetist, Richard “Harry” Harris, deservedly received applause from across the globe.
