Beyond impressive is all one can say about these incredible machines. They have little contact with the road yet they manage incredible lap times whilst defending positions with elbows, knees and a thin layer of leather. Coming off these machines hurt, yet they will be more concerned about the status of their machine than themselves. SBK catering for the 1000cc machines with the 600cc machines uncomfortably close behind.
David McFadden cruised to overall victory aboard his Stunt SA Yamaha R1 but certainly impressed with his smooth riding. Jacques Ackermann and the South / Barker / Stepp Durbanville Kawasaki ZX10R foun himself under pressure from J-P Friederich aboard the GR Tax / MI Car Centre / Johnny Fox Yamaha R1 but held on to second overall with Malcolm Rapson finishing fourth aboard his Racebase Kawasaki ZX10R. Michael du Toit wheelied his way to fifth aboard his Danie Maritz Racing / Quick Pos Yamaha R1 and 600cc winner Mike Hunter placed the hard charging LLG Properties / HRT Kawasaki ZX6R sixth overall.
