30 March 2019 – Race Report conducted by our sponsored rider, Johan Volgelesang – Rider Number #18
After a good result in PE I was really looking forward to round 2 in Cape Town and hoping to build on PE and move up in the championship points. In practice I struggled a little bit I was very surprised to see that my lap time was still somewhat competitive which gave me confidence heading into moto 1.
In race 1 I got off to a mid pack start and unfortunately wasn’t able to improve much on my position I ended up colliding with a lapped rider and going down which left me in a disappointing 9th for race 1.
Race 2 I got off to a worse start then race 1 but made a few passes on the 1st lap rode better then in heat 1 and ended up with a 7th giving me an 8th overall for the day. I was very disappointed in my riding but all in all the day had some positives as I moved up to 6th place in the championship standings.
I will be hard at work to improve on my results from the first two rounds and I am confident I will be able to do so at round 3 which will be my home national in Bloemfontein.
