Zwartkops Race Weekend Recap: A Success!

Friday:
The focus was on regaining rhythm, driving hard, and keeping the car and myself intact to avoid past mistakes. We consistently ran in the top 6, with times over a second faster than our previous test session, thanks to new tyres.

Saturday Morning:
The cold track on Saturday morning affected everyone’s pace, with times 2 seconds slower than Friday. Despite a late mistake landing me in the kitty litter, I was thrilled to learn I qualified 3rd—my first qualifying session in over 11 years!

Race 1:
A great start had me briefly in 2nd through turns 1 and 2. However, being 35kg overweight hindered our straight-line speed, and I was overtaken by three cars by turn 5. Despite this, I finished 6th after some exciting battles.

Race 2:
Another strong start in Race 2, but early position losses ensued. I regained a position a few laps in and narrowly avoided a spinning car. A late misjudgment while passing a backmarker caused me to oversteer and collect several kilos of stones, but I recovered to finish 9th. A solid result considering our progress since Kyalami.

The dream is within reach. We need to shed weight to make the car a race winner. With the right weight adjustments for the next Zwartkops race, we should be competitive enough for 1st place.

A huge thank you to everyone for their support and motivating messages, and to our friends, family, supporters, and amazing sponsors who cheered us on at the track. Your support means the world to us.

I wish I could have seen my dad’s reaction at the finish line. I’m sure he shed a tear or two seeing his creation, a car he’s spent over 10,000 hours on, showing its potential as a fast and competitive racecar.

Two and a half weeks have passed since our ill-fated debut at Kyalami. The memory of crashing the car on the very first lap of race one still stings. What was supposed to be a magical weekend where the world is in awe of the JForce Formula Vee race car, its design, and track capabilities, instead turned into a nightmare, leaving our weekend in ruins.

The worst-case scenario I planned for was not being able to crack the top 10, not crashing the car with enough damage for it to be irreparable for racing the next day. It was a bitter pill to swallow.

Reflecting on our misfortune, it’s clear that we entered the race unprepared. We should have invested more time in testing before committing to a race weekend. However, the allure of Kyalami, with its rich history and challenging layout, proved too tempting to resist. Unfortunately, our lack of preparation came back to haunt us as we spent valuable practice sessions ironing out niggles that should have been addressed beforehand.

I felt like I let everyone down, especially my dad after he basically spent 10,000 hours building the car only to see it bent in its inaugural race. So many people were watching us, rooting for us, and cheering us on, our story of chasing the dream being followed by many, only to end with disappointment.

It was difficult for me to not keep blaming and resenting myself for what happened, but this is motor racing and these things happen.

My wife reminded me of the following: “Success is Not Final, Failure is Not Fatal: it is the Courage to Continue that Counts.” These words ring true as we pick ourselves up and prepare for the next challenge. The outpouring of support and encouragement from friends, family, fans, and sponsors fuels our determination to push forward.

So, while our dreams may be momentarily delayed, they are far from over. With each setback, we grow stronger and more determined to chase our passion. The track awaits, and we’re ready to write the next chapter in our racing journey. The dream is not over, just slightly delayed. 🏎️🏁😀

Pictures from Kyalami last weekend. We still think the car looks 👌🏻 on track! 🏎️🏁🏆
Our weekend started with promise, anticipating the opportunity to showcase our car and its capabilities to promote Gouws Motorsport’s JForce Formula Vee Race Car. The goal was clear: demonstrate its prowess and sell the car to build more race cars and grow the business. However, what ensued was far from what we had envisioned. Life, in its unpredictable nature, dealt us a heavy blow—a dream turned into a nightmare.

Throughout the day, we faced a myriad of challenges. From handling issues to faulty batteries, each hurdle seemed insurmountable. Yet, by the time race one arrived, we had overcome them all. As we left the pit lane onto the warm-up lap, I began to smile, confident that we could pass at least 10 cars. Unfortunately, it was not meant to be; our race lasted only half a lap. The feeling of driving the car, even for just half a lap, was exhilarating. It embodied the vision my father had for us—a vision that materialized in race one. Despite the challenges, we were poised for success until fate intervened.

The incident unfolded swiftly as we entered the esses, a high-speed section of the circuit. A competitor ahead spun unexpectedly, initially veering towards the inside of the track. Anticipating his trajectory, I committed to the outside line, only for him to careen backward across my path. The car in front narrowly avoided him, but I wasn’t as fortunate. The impact was jarring, bringing our race—and our aspirations—to an abrupt halt.

I reserve a special place of gratitude for my father. Our time together at the track—working on the car, sharing laughs, and enduring struggles—is cherished beyond measure. Dad, your dedication, hard work, and unwavering support are the pillars upon which our endeavors stand. Thank you for everything.

In the realm of motorsport, dreams may turn into nightmares, but it’s the pursuit of those dreams that defines our resilience. 

Together, we’ll navigate the twists and turns, on and off the track, fueled by passion and unwavering determination.
Only 2 more days, then we race at @kyalamigrandprixcircuit 🏎️🏁🏆
