Prepare for an exciting weekend of racing at the Killarney International Raceway in Cape Town when one of South Africa’s top driving talents returns to national competition during the season-opening round of the National Extreme Festival. With an impressive record that includes numerous karting and saloon car championships, Bradley Liebenberg will be looking to add another to the list as he sets out to defend his 2023 SupaCup title. This time, however, it will be in the colours of Toyota Gazoo Racing South Africa and its newly introduced Toyota Starlet.

Since the inception of the SupaCup championship, Volkswagen, with its purpose-built SupaPolo, has been the only manufacturer on the grid. Therefore, the introduction of the Starlet adds another, with TGRSA set to have a second car to partner with Liebenberg soon.

“I am absolutely thrilled for the first race of the year, as there’s always something incredibly exhilarating about it. This year, I’ll compete in the all-new Toyota Starlet, which I’m incredibly excited about. While there’s a sense of the unknown, I’m not one to shy away from a good challenge. It’s going to be formidable going up against numerous Polos as the only Toyota, but I’m confident I have what it takes to come out on top.”

The Johannesburg resident has also been appointed as the driver coach for the GR Cup Development Program, which aims to introduce karters to main circuit racing through a diverse development program that sees the winner receive a fully sponsored drive in the 2025 SupaCup Championship! Liebenberg eagerly anticipates the opportunity to impart his vast knowledge and racing experience to the younger generation.

Liebenberg thanks TGRSA, Fast Developments, and Bucklist Racing for the opportunity and Sparco’s continued support.

The weekend begins with three practice sessions on Friday, followed by qualifying and two races on Saturday. A live stream will be available on the Extreme Festival’s YouTube channel from 10:00 onwards.
