Phakisa, 22/10/2014, South African Motorcycle Road Racing Championship
Once again, privateer S 1000 RR rider and Race Trophy participant Lance Isaacs proved to be one of the top riders in the Super GP class – the highest class in the South African Motorcycle Championship (SAM).
The Phakisa Freeway near Welkom hosted the penultimate round of the 2014 South African Motorcycle Championship last weekend. In the highest class, the Super GP category, Lance Isaacs claimed two more podiums with his Black Swan Racing BMW S 1000 RR. In race one he was fighting for the win until the finish line, coming home second only 0.5 seconds behind winner Clint Seller. In race two Isaacs was third.
The rider with the nick name ‘Sir Lancelot’ thanked his fans by posting a wheelie video on Facebook, commenting: “I might not have won the race, but I certainly won the best wheelie of the weekend on my Black Swan Racing BMW S 1000 RR!” With the Race Trophy points he received for these results, Isaacs improved from 12th to ninth in the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy standings. His teammate Brent Harran (ZA) finished fifth in both races on his RR.
In the first Super M class race, South African Nicolas Grobler celebrated a dominant victory on his BMW HP4. He crossed the line with an advantage of 7.6 seconds over his closest rival. South African Janine Davies was sixth on her BMW S 1000 RR. In race two, Grobler was second on the podium, while Davies finished a strong fourth. The 2014 season finale will be held on 30th November at Red Star Raceway.
