Visser comes from behind to take a last gasp victory
CompCare Polo Cup champion elect, Charl Visser and racing girlfriend co-driver Kelsey Davidson delivered some late meeting thrills as Visser came from behind to steal victory in Aldo Scribante racetrack’s 45 minute endurance race on Saturday. Forming part of an enjoyable Gqeberha regional raceday, Visser took the win with a last lap pass for the lead.
“Kelsey and I thought we’d have a little fun, so we made a late entry in the 45-minute endurance race at the end of the day in her dad’s Stu Davidson Racing Volkswagen SupaCup,” Charl explained. “Kelsey had a good start and enjoyed dicing with Daniel Bright for second, and I was third when I took the car over at our pit stop after eleven laps.
“I came out third behind Daniel, who still had to make his compulsory stop, and a fair gap behind Deon Slabbert in second. I was a bit closer to Deon by the time Daniel finally stopped, so I put my head down and slowly but surely closed him down. I was close enough to make my move and steal the win on the final lap!
“What a race!. That was so much fun and more good time behind the wheel of a Polo SupaCup, so special thanks so much to our race engineer uncle Fred Ballinger, Nick and the Stu Davidson Racing team for the opportunity. Now it’s time to focus on Polo Cup – I can’t wait for that!”
Multiple South African National karting champion Charl sits a handful of points away from his first National circuit racing crown as he leads the CompCare Polo Cup championship to the season finale at Zwartkops’ Extreme Festival, Saturday 14 October.
