Giordano honoured to race at Grand Prix Circuit

Giordano Lupini and his Tork Craft Volkswagen are locked and loaded for the East London Grand Prix Circuit’s CompCare Polo Cup races on Saturday 22 July. But while his victorious come from behind charge remains top of mind, there’s another reason Lupini is relishing this weekend.

“The East London Grand Prix Circuit is hugely historically significant, but it also has a very special place in my heart,” Giordano explains. “My great grandfather entered cars in most of the 1960s East London South African Grands Prix, my grandfather often raced there too, as did my dad, who even competed in the first ever Polo Cup races there back in the ‘nineties.

“So this one stands apart, not only for those special reasons, but also for the daunting challenges South Africa’s fastest racetrack holds. “Nian du Toit Racing has my Tork Craft Volkswagen primed for action and I am ready to race. Our previous outing was a bit below par, and we’re keen to put that one behind us, so bring it on, we can’t wait for a bit of Border conflict!”

The CompCare Polo Cup races form part of the East London Grand Prix Circuit’s 22 July Extreme Festival. The racing will also be live streamed via the Extreme Festival‘s social media platforms.
