The fourth round of the Motul Clubmans Championship heads to Zwartkops Raceway this weekend, having completed three previous rounds that has seen the popular series travel across three provinces already, namely, Mpumalanga (Red Star Raceway), Gauteng (Midvaal Raceway) and the Free State Province (Phakisa Freeway).
Seven classes will again be represented, in what promises to be great entertainment for the spectators in attendance, with the Super Saloon class once again forming part of the Clubmans' grid.
Keegan Pottas, who stole the show in Class A at the last round, is back with his ATPM-backed Honda CRX, while the popular Martini Racing VW Golf Mk1 of George Economedes, dubbed the "Monster," will be absent, with Economedes preferring to enter his FINA BMW E36 328i in Class C. This will most likely be the class to watch as Giles Darroch (GRD/Nepic VW Golf Mk1), who has won five out of six races, competes alongside Roan Ehlers (FEC Racing VW Golf Mk1) and the returning Paul van Niekerk (Turvo Trix/Nepic VW Golf Mk1).
Some other prominant in-class battles will be between Dewald Brummer (Mad Racing/Fuchs VW Polo) and Louis Cloete (AMD Tuning VW Beetle) in Class B; and between David Potgieter (Allwagen/111 Plumbers VW Golf Mk2), Keanu Venter (Acrotek LR Spares VW Golf Mk1) and Roland Hopkins (Rietchard Scrap Metals VW Golf Mk1) in Class E.
Everything is set for an enthralling weekend and Motul, EV Dynamics, Gabriel Shock Absorbers and Big Boss Auto extend a warm invitation to all to come out to Zwartkops Raceway on 17-18 May.
