The African 6 Hour Endurance Race

Phakisa Raceway, Welkom, Free State, South Africa
23 February 2013.

Endurance Racing. A serious business.

The African 6 Hour Endurance Race will be the longest circuit event in South Africa for a great number of years. For many potential entrants this will be their first taste of a long distance race. It will produce a winning team that can be totally proud of their achievement.

The organisers, CCE Events, are asking for entries as soon as possible as the race is limited to 60 cars only and from as many categories as possible.

The spirit of endurance racing is about durability, The African 6 Hour is not a series of interconnected sprint races but one long gruelling event. It will require solid investment in the car and crew and equipment required to complete the event.

Team Management is a key factor. For those of you who have watched Le Mans and similar races either live or televised will recall how organisation, equipment, strategy and meticulous attention to detail both on the part of the drivers and team, can make the difference between finishing, winning or losing.

CCE will be making every effort to attract overseas competitors but it is primarily an event for South Africans to enjoy, so get your entries in early, prepare your team and vehicle to the highest standards and let’s make The African 6 Hour an event to be proud of, both now and in the future as, we aim for a World Endurance Championship race in the near future. There is great interest overseas in having a WEC race in Africa.

Let’s be sure it is in South Africa.
