The event was
organised by Karl from Surf Zone, and Simon from
Wildfire tattoos. Pieter Annandale came down from
Gauteng and won the luge, but otherwise it was
largely a Cape Town race.
The course was very
technical, and although not very fast, had very
fast accelleration and lots of scary corners. (Note
how this contrasts was the previous track.
Due to the technical
course there were some surprises and lots of fun
crashes. The course started with a nice drop into
the right turn 1. But just before the turn there
was a nasty speed bump which managed to upset your
line into the corner. Then it was a long steep
straight, then onto the brakes and into turn 2
which was a gentle but scary right, As you start
straightening it was up and over the next speed
bump. This gave some air and as you landed it was
time to be turning for turn three, a long left
Turn 4 was an almost
hairpin which was the cause of many crashes due to
it being counter cambered. Then it was a drop into
turn 5, a left hairpin and finally turn 6 a gentle
left and over the finish.
What made the course
interesting was the fact that it was not ideal for
skating, the road had rough patches in the braking
areas and the speed bumps were in horrid positions.
But fun was had by all, even the many who crashed.
There were fortunately no serious accidents,
although the medics were busy patching scraped
fingers especially Donovan Coetzee who snapped his
buttboard landing after the speed bump, and scraped
off one of his nails.
