G&H Transport Extreme Supercars and National GT at Killarney International raceway

National GT racing returns to Killarney in Cape Town this Saturday 20 March, where the G & H Extreme Supercars plan to steal the show at a jam packed 2021 national championship season opener. The action up front promises to be, well extreme, in the Unlimited class followed closely by the National GT class, which runs to international GT3 racing balance of performance regulations.

Balance of performance rules apply to all international GT3 championships around the world, from the new DTM to the Kyalami 9 Hour. BoP is a universally accepted means of equalising the performance between different racing supercars. The proven BoP system ensures that a mid-engined V10 Lamborghini can compete on even terms with a turbocharged Ferrari, a rear engined Porsche 911 or a front engined BMW M3 or AMG GT, and the rest.

The National GT class competes as part of the Extreme Supercar series showcasing the fastest GT cars in South Africa.

Unlimited Class A+ cars compete in a separate class in G & H Extreme Supercars, outside of balance of performance limitations and those cars can be expected to fight for overall G & H Extreme Supercars glory. Franco Scribante took the trouble to travel to Killarney’s opening WP Sports & GT round to fettle his Porsche 997T for this weekend. He will have local lad Dayne Angel’s Autohaus Angel Porsche GT2 to deal with for the overall win.

The National GT3 race will go down according to balance of performance, between Stradale Into Africa Lamborghini Huracan GT3 duo Charl Arangies and Xolile Letlaka, who will be in action against Scuderia Scribante brothers Aldo and Silvio Scribante in another pair of Huracans. Local hero Marcel Angel will play interference in his Autohaus Angel Ferrari 488 GT3.

Behind them, expect the class A battle to go down between Jonathan du Toit’s Trans Africa Ferrari F430, Ben Morgenrood’s Lexus GT, Ricky Giannoccaro’s G & H Lamborghini Trofeo and Rick Loureiro’s Combined Racing BMW 335i. And Marius Jackson's Megafibre Audi R8 GT4, Ant Blunden in a Sajco GSP CV Porsche 997 and Faizel Coetzee’s A & M Plumbing BMW M3 can be expected to entertain mid-pack.

Saturday’s races will sadly go down behind closed doors in accordance with lockdown protocols, but the day will be live streamed. Find the feed on the Extreme Festival Facebook page.
