The Classic Conqueror title wasn’t the only glory up for grabs, with all of the competitors vying for victory in their respective classes too.
With his record-breaking run in the Class Final, Scribante took the trophy for Class H8. Enzo Kuun claimed the runner-up position with his fastest run for the day, stopping the clock at 46.991 sec, ahead of third-placed Rui Campos (47.2 sec).
Class H5 saw Ian Schofield take a well-earned trophy with a time of 41.175 seconds, ahead of Robert Wolk (46.926 sec). Despite retiring from the Top 10 Shootout, Andre Bezuidenhout was rewarded with the Class H7 win ahead of Graeme Nathan (49.749 sec) and Peter Lindenberg in a 1965 Shelby Ford Mustang GT350 (50.233 sec).
Class H6 went to Charles Needham in the monstrous 8.8-litre Shelby AC Cobra (55.801 sec), followed by Michelle Jean Hambly-Grobler in a 1990 Porsche 944 Turbo (58.083 sec). South African racing legend Geoff Mortimer qualified for the H6 final, but a dislodged steering wheel saw him running off the track at Turn 4 during his run up the hill, fortunately without injury to the driver or significant damage to the car.
Chris Knezovich took Class H4 in the 1967 McLaren M10B (46.605 sec), followed by the similar 1967 Porsche 911 R entries of Johan de Bruyn (49.503 sec) and Kobus Brits (51.620 sec). Clayton Kimber emerged victorious in Class H3 in his 2001 5.0-litre AC Cobra (52.336 sec) over Aaron van Schaik in a 1971 Porsche 911 RSR Outlaw (52.678 sec) and Ivan Marx in the spectacular Shelby Ford Mustang 500 (54.137 sec).
Well-known racer Barry Ingle took his iconic 1955 Porsche 550A Spyder to the Class H2 win with a time of 55.968 sec, ahead of Fred Phillips in a 1964 Morgan 4/4 (59.167 sec) and Dave Alexander’s 1964 Lotus Six (59.668 sec). The golden oldies in Class H1 were topped by Roger Lewis in a 1934 MG Special Hedgehog (1 min 12.606 sec), followed by Gino Noli with a time of 1 min 59.327 sec (1935 Austin 7 Ulster).
