    Background: PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA

    Go-karting in South Africa, and the finals of the 100 and 250 Intercontinental races were held on January 15 at the Zwartkop circuit, near Pretoria. From start, the 30-strong field was dominated by overseas competitors, with Bernd Schneider of West Germany and Paul Gudel from Switzerland among the early leaders. Schneider and Gudel lead most of the way. Schneider won, and Gudel came second. Third place was not clear-cut, with German drivers, Frank Schmickler (No.23) and Thomas Klaffke (No.14) contesting it. Schmickler took the honors in the 100 class. In the 250 finals, home competitors prevailed, Derick Irving taking first place. But he had a hard struggle with the world champion Lennart Bholin, from Switzerland, before taking the chequered flag. South African Hennie Meyer (No.16) came third.
