Raynor Becker and Michael van Geems were the ‘Class of the field’ today in the circuit discipline of the 7 Stars UIM P750 Pro Stock World Championship.
South African teams took the top 5 places, followed by Brits Blìgh Julius and Charlie Hatfield / Team 33 MultiSpark Racing.
The BrandFuel sponsored outfit have had a torrid time in Cape Town so far, today Lady Luck graced the team with an appearance.
Team Manager Glenn Julius told me this evening;
The guys were drawn in competitive heats with major competition from both the Swedish and South African boats.
A ‘mid range draw’ with a great start in Heat 1 from third to second, using intelligent team work and using the extender lap to their advantage in both heats gave us two second places.
Bligh Julius who has been on a strict diet and fitness regime leading up to this Championship, supped a cold pint of Castle beer after today’s racing and has been unavailable for comment since.
Julius Snr explained;
We put Bligh to bed after his first pint in 4 months, Team 33 is solid and well prepared for tomorrow’s final 2 heats.
There is nothing to lose and everything to gain!
