Saturday, 25 March, sees Aldo Scribante Raceway in Port Elizabeth host the second round of the Algoa Motorsport Club’s Eastern Cape Regional Championship. The event will include motorcycle and car racing.
The motorcycle riders will tackle five categories, the Historic, Powersport, 600s and Unlimiteds. The car racers will divide into the Eastern Province Regional Saloons, Historic and Classic Saloons, Street and Fine Cars and Sports and GT for this event.
