PCR drivers Jaki Scheckter of the PCR Liqui Moly, Etana, RAM, Tsogo Sun Ford Galaxie and Paul Gerber of the Etana Formula Ford Ray will be going down to East London for the Midas Historic Tour this weekend of the 20/21 September 2013.
It’s been a rush to prepare both awesome racing cars to get them ready for the long trip. We all are excited to attend something different, going to oldest Grand Prix track in South Africa, away from Gauteng, and see the sea!!!
Also, it’s the hometown of Jaki, as his family been born and raised there, bringing the Formula 1 World Champion of his Uncle, Jody Scheckter, and his Dad, Ian Scheckter, multiple South African Motorracing Champion and ex Formula 1 driver. The last time Jaki raced in East London was in 1992 in the Formula Ford. Now it be the massive tanker of the grey 1965 Ford Galaxie!
It will be a fun weekend, kind of like a little racing holiday! However, we have to focus on ensuring Jaki’s closest rival for the championship, Franco Scribante in his beautiful orange 1965 Ford Mustang, stays behind the Galaxie! Jaki is currently 15 points ahead of Franco, with 36 points still available till end of season!
For those of you who live in or near East London, come over and say hi!
