Deon Ebel so nearly took a tumble during morning practice, but it proved to be the motivation he needed to take overall victory after some extremely entertaining racing which saw legend Danie “van Killarney” Maritz keeping the youngsters honest aboard his 1985 Suzuki GSXR1100.
Following his heart stopping moment in Turn 5 Deon Ebel rode extremely well to take overall victory aboard his Maui Jim / Ebel Bro’s Racing Honda CBR1000RR but it was the mand in second overall that really impressed. Making his debut at Killarney in 1978 makes Danie “van Killarney” Maritz a true legend of motorcycle racing in the Western Cape and clearly the “old Man” was still more than capable of teaching the youngsters a few tricks.
Deon Ebel beating the veteran by 0.097 seconds on combined times for the two heats! Without a doubt the closest result of the day.
