Johan Niemand and Brendon Langeveld were the overall winners of the Long Haul discipline of the 7 Stars UIM P750 Pro Stock World Championship today in Cape Town.
They were closely followed by Dreyer and JD van Niekerk in the Moku Racing / Marshmallow BobKat.
Moku Racing’s other team, driven by Brit Darryn Harrison took a worthy 15th place overall.
Harrison drove through the pain barrier after suffering a knee injury on Sunday.
The other British team, Bligh Julius and Charlie Hatfield felt the pain 50 m after the start.
Julius told me this evening;
We were hit by another boat which burst our starboard tube. Bang race over!
The team put in a protest after the race in the knowledge that the boat that ‘took out’ the BrandFuel sponsored Team 33 was disqualified for dangerous driving.
The protest was rejected and thrown out by the race officials.
I had to leave it there.
The South African teams are tough for sure but have helped us to get the boat rebuilt today to compete in the flat water racing.
The silverware is out of site now!
