The country’s first national motorsport championship race, which is the nation’s premier motor racing event, returns to Donnybrook this Sunday and is expected to feature top drivers and riders battling for top honors.

More than 25 cars and 12 motorcycles have so far confirmed their participation.

Sables Motor club president Jim Perry told NewsDay Sport that everything is in place for the Turbo Solutions Africa sponsored race.

“It promises to be a great day of racing and with entry at just $ 10 per person, we hope to have a full house of spectators. We have everything in place to host the main circuit motor and motorcycle race in Donnybrook this Sunday. This is the last national race for 2019 and promises fast races as many categories are very close to the points, ”he said.

In the sedan A cars there will be Bond’s Mazda RX8, Robinson’s Toyota Supra, Whyte’s Subaru and Perry’s two BMWs competing against each other.

Turbo Solutions owner Mano Zevgolis will also compete in his Honda 2L in Sedan B against the VW 2L Polos from Bulawayo.

The Saloon C 1600 class will see top Toyota Corollas from Murton Green Exton and Berkau take victories, while the Saloon D class is a battle between Kerwin Datsun from Harare and Beavers Mini from Bulawayo.

The sports car category will see Gary Kirk return in action after an engine rebuild and take on Exton’s Yamaha powered car.

The father / son Cameron duo will mingle with the Van Reenan brothers, all behind the wheel of Toyota-powered cars.

Gary Blueit and Dez Morris will also be in the lead and Steenkamp will be behind the wheel of his fast Formula Ford.

Additionally, motorcycle racing will have both superbikes and the 250cc class.

Thorne on his Kawasaki Z1R hopes to win, but Mellor and Olsen on their Yamaha 600s are ready to challenge him.

Young Ricky Whyte hopes to win the 250cc, but awaits competition from his father Shaun.
