World Superbikes

On the subject of international sport, Joahnnesburg hosted the world superbikes this past weekend, at Kyalami. Dave, being an accredited photographer, had an absolute blast! It was fantastic to watch, and also to hear the commentary of our own star, Lance Isaacs. We’re proud of Sheridan Morias, South African rider who did well in both races, despite this being his first appearance in the series. Two of our nephews participated in the 600’s support race, Bjorn especially having a great ride, so well done to them! Unfortunately Regis Laconi had a serious accident. We were relieved to hear yesterday that things are looking much better for him. Our wishes go out for his swift recovery.

Dave raced professionally for nine years, representing South Africa at home and abroad, and still races motorbikes off-road. So does our friend, Tom Claasen, who’s done the Dakar Rally twice. His wife Sonja and I are thinking of writing a handbook for the wives of guys like these. It seems the need for speed, once in the blood, never recedes!
