21 August 2021 RACE DAY Cancelled
It is with deep regret that we would like to inform you of the cancellation of the 2021 Unique Raceway Winter Classics Event, which was due to be held on the 21st of August 2021.
The decision to cancel was based on the national COVID-19 level that we were in during the month of July and the current adjusted level that we are in currently.
These unpredictable times have made it difficult for our sponsors to be properly engaged in events, making our targets with sponsors tremendously challenging. Covid-19 did not only keep the sponsors away unfortunately, it also impacted on the amount of entries. This is understandable due to the increase in fatalities and infections on the rise caused by the new Delta Variant.
We recognize that the timing of this decision significantly inconvenienced many. However, this decision was made out of deep concern for the health and well-being of our registrants, staff and sponsors. We understand that choosing to cancel our event is a difficult decision, especially when we have spent time and effort into planning and promotion of the event. However, by doing so, we will be keeping our attendees safe, helping to flatten the curve of the pandemic, and affecting positive change. And while cancelling our event may inconvenience our guests in the short term, in such challenging times they’re likely to understand and agree with our decision.
We endeavor to try again in 2022, and we hope that the pandemic would’ve been significantly curved by that time.
We thank you for your support and wish you well.
Bringing oval racing back to Polokwane
Car racing in all its forms, has always been seen as an exclusive sport for the privileged few as it was regarded as too expensive for the normal person. In many cases this is true and without deep pockets or massive sponsors it will be impossible to race in most classes.
Over the years Oval Racing was developed in many towns by local enthusiast in partnership with the local municipalities but due to limited funds and lack of inclusion has most of them fell by the wayside.
This also happened at Polokwane Show Grounds, the end of 2018.This year during Covid 19 lockdown was a club formed to open the track in early 2021.
Unique Raceway AcademyOval Racing 101 vs Open Days
How we want to change an experience into a sport.
Our plan is to have an oval racing academy with few cars in the entry class, that will be available for rent for training purpose or just as a bucket list experience. We will also approach high schools, so we can promote this as a sport and stepping stone to faster classes in motorsport.
We want to attract people of all ages that just want to feel the excitement inside a racecar for a few laps, by driving with an experienced driver for a few “hot laps” as a passenger. This might encourage a person to either invest in his or her own car or never to do it again, but belief that it will be memorable.
We will be operating under the strict rules and procedures of World of Motorsport South Africa (WOMZA) which are governed by Department of Sport and Recreation. Following strict safety guidelines, will ensure the safety of the attendees at all our events and training sessions.
What an exciting way to introduce speed lovers or adrenaline junkies to a way to experience real racing.
