Round 6 of the MOTUL Clubmans Championship is set to return to the iconic Phakisa Freeway, Free State Province, on 17 August, with the championship still very much up for grabs. Fielding a smaller grid than usual, the Clubmans will join the BMW Car Club Gauteng at their third Bridgestone BMW Track and Race Day, for what promises to be an entertaining day of motorsport.
Heading into Round 6, the Class A battle will see Keagan Pottas (AIPM Honda CRX), who scored a double victory at the previous Phakisa round earlier this year, battle it out with Wayne Crous (Toshiba Tech VW Vivo). Class B honours will be contested between Dirk Lawrence (LDM Tuning/Vaal Timber Honda Ballade) and a spectator-favourite, the FAS Racing-backed Alfa Romeo GTV6 of Bjorn Gerbert.
In Class D, overall championship leader, Duane Brown (Brown’s Auto Ford Fiesta), who has had a good run of form in recent races, will be difficult to beat. Trying to unsettle Brown will be seasoned-campaigner, Roland Hopkins, in his Rietchard Scrap Metals-sponsored VW Golf Mk1.
Ralph Kearnes, competes as the sole Class F runner in his beautifully prepared Big Boss Auto-backed Renault Clio.
In what has become customary for the 2019 season, a four-car Super Saloon grid joins the Modified Production Car field on the day. The Cockerams, Amos and Jo-Anne, both running Opel Tigra space-framed cars, will be joined by Richard Berner (Gabriel Shock Absorbers) and Marius Jacobs (AAA Recovery Centre), the latter having competed at every round of the championship thus far.
The Clubmans Association, along with MOTUL, EV Dynamics and Big Boss Auto, would like to invite everyone to join them for what promises to be an action-filled weekend of racing at Phakisa Freeway.
