Seller takes his first win at Kyalami

Clint Seller (MiWay Yamaha Racing R1) claimed his first win at the new Kyalami layout when he took the flag at the end of a tough race at round 4 of the 2017 DEOD SuperGP Champions Trophy. Seller and pole-sitter Lance Isaacs (SupaBets / Sandton BMW Motorrad S1000RR) pulled away from the rest of the field with Isaacs sitting on the former champion’s back wheel.

The dice between the leading pair looked like it was going to go down to the wire but, with just a lap and a half to go, Isaacs crashed out in spectacular fashion at Clubhouse corner. While he was able to walk away, he has left his pit crew with a lot of work to do to get his bike, which flew over the catch fence, ready for tomorrow’s race.

With Isaacs no longer in contention, Seller was able to take a comfortable win from Greg Gildenhuys (Autohaus Towing Kawasaki ZX10R) and Michael White (Consortium Shipping Yamaha R1). While Gildenhuys had a relatively easy run to the podium, things were a lot more difficult for White. A disappointing qualifying session left him ninth on the grid and he had to fight his way through the traffic to a well-deserved top three finish.

Behind the leading trio, Brandon Goode (Linex Yamaha R1) led the rest of the pack home. He was followed over the line by AJ Venter (Team Hygenica Yamaha Racing R1) and David McFadden (RPM Centre / Sandton Auto BMW S1000RR).

Dylan Barnard (Consortium Shipping Yamaha R1), Garrick Vlok (Diamond Core Drilling / Shop #74 Yamaha R1), Nicolas Kershaw (Tsunami Beach Bar Yamaha R1) and Morne Geldenhuis (Hi-Tech Racing Yamaha R1) rounded out the top ten.

SuperMasters championship leader Hendrik de Bruin (Yamaha R1) has been the model of consistency this season, but he was eliminated early on in the race when his bike had a rear tyre problem. This left Heinrich Rheeder (Rheeder Racing BMW S1000RR) to claim the win from Justin Gillesen (SupaBets / Sandon BMW Motorrad S1000RR) and Johnny Krieger (Lekka Racing Hygenica Yamaha R1).
