MCFADDEN AND SELLER

SHARE A COUPLE OF THRILLERS

Killarney International Raceway hosted

The Liqui Moly Cape Town Round, the

third in the 2019 SA SuperBike series,

on Saturday, 11 May. A pair of races

that were in doubt until the fi nal metres

saw Cape Town’s David McFadden

power his RPM Centre/Stunt SA Yamaha

R1 to a narrow win over Clint Seller

(King Price Yamaha Racing R1) in the

opening SuperBike heat, while in the next

McFadden had to settle for second after

Seller was able to repel his late charge.

In the SuperSport 600 class, Kewyn

Snyman (Hillbilly Racing Team Yamaha

R6) had a comfortable win in the opening

heat but defending champion Blaze

Baker (King Price Yamaha Racing R6)

bounced back in the second to take a

narrow victory.
