On Saturday, a full day’s racing will give East London fans non-stop action starting with another SAES first; a predawn start for the second four-hour endurance race, which gets under way in the dark at 6am, racing into the early morning light, something that mimics the Bathurst 12-hour in Australia.
Racing action comes thick and fast, with a quick warm-up session for the SAGT cars ahead of qualifying for the regional Modified and Historic Saloon Car races which also feature on the action-packed bill.
The second SAGT race of the weekend starts at 11.50am, followed in quick succession by two races each for the regional Modified and Historic Saloons.
The third and final SAGT race of the weekend starts after the lunch Hot Laps for lucky draw winners at 3.55pm, followed by a third race for each of the regional Modified and Historic Saloon cars.
Spectators will be able to follow the SAGT and SAE races on live-stream, as well as download a free electronic race programme which features qualifying results, driver profiles, behind-the-scenes articles, images from the previous round, photography tips for spectators and much more.
