Campos, Liebenberg, Mogotsi square up in SupaCup
Zwartkops Raceway is battoning down all hatches as the GTC SupaCup heads to the Pretoria circuit for its third round races Saturday 20 May. With each of the previous rounds delivering differing dominant results, but extreme dicing behind, the racing can once again be expected to be fast and furious.
Hype Energy racer Bradley Liebenberg dominated at Killarney in Cape Town last time out, while Keegan Campos’ Veloce Carello SupaPolo did the same at the opening round at Kyalami. Both of them will also have more than enough to keep themselves busy on the all-Volkswagen SupaPolo grid. Not least of all, second in the championship chase, Volkswagen factory driver Jonathan Mogotsi will be out to prove a point at a circuit he loves at Zwartkops.
Tato Carello has enjoyed a steady start to sit fourth in the title chase aboard his Carello Auto SupaCup, while rookie Tate Bishop will be keen to show what he is made of in his Angri LTR machine. Dark horse Arnold Neveling made a positive return to SupaCup in his Stradale Goscor car last time out and he will be another to keep a close eye on at Zwartkops.
The above trio, as well as Chemi Liquid Energy brothers Dominic and Calvin Dias, and JP van der Walt’s Platinum Wheels machine delivered some frantic action last time out. They will be joined returning duo, Danie van Niekerk and Scottish visitor Paul Luti, while CompCare Polo Cup lass Karah Hill steps up to make her SupaCup debut at Zwartkops. Having considerable experience racing a similar car in SA Endurance Series, Karah’s progress will be watched with interest.
Should make for some most intriguing racing at the Pretoria racetrack on Saturday 20 May. Diarise it now!
