Hi Wesley Le Roux here from sunny South Africa.


Avid fan of motorsports in all forms. unfortunately i missed the real racing on the times in KZN, but pay homage to the pros and dearly departed.


Billy Scheepers is the father of my best friend William whom I've known over 20 years already.


Billy passed away on New years morning from a heart attack but at 73 had lived a full life and ran his workshop in Durban until the very end.

He was instrumental in many peoples lives imparting pearls of wisdom in what I'm sure to him was just a simple overview of the task or problem at hand.

He raced a Norton and moved on to cars racing Mc Nicols Mclaren M10B and many other well known cars.


As my inspiration for joining this form I plan to host a tribute to Billy Scheepers at The Roy Hesketh circuit in Pietermaritzburg on the 15 February 2014.


I would like to extend an invite to all, also a request that if anyone has owns or knows where any of his cars or bikes are, that you please advise as I would like to build a display area to showcase the days of thunder, when driving was all about driving...


Going to just enjoy a day out on the track where many memories were made with friends and family...
