Competition in the Bridgestone Production Car Championship has been fierce this season. The on-track battles for position and points has demanded the most from every racer in the series.
The final round of the championship sees the Audi S4 quattro racers head to Zwartkops Raceway for the last two races of the season on Saturday, 1 November. It is at this race meeting that the championship will be decided and the new champion crowned.
Defending champion in this series, Michael Stephen (A1 – Engen Xtreme), has an 11 point deficit to make up at this event to mount a successful challenge for the title. This is not the first time that Stephen has entered the final round behind on points, only to emerge with another championship title.
Gennaro Bonafede (A32 – Audi Sasolracing) needs to produce a consistent performance at the Zwartkops event to consolidate his third place position in the championship. Bonafede’s position in the series means that if he holds his current form he is assured of a podium result for the season.
Hennie Groenewald (A8 – Audi Sasolracing) will aim for another good result at the Zwartkops event, hoping to finish the season with a podium on the day. Groenewald has produced a podium result for his team at each of the Zwartkops race meetings this season so his chances are good for a repeat performance.
Simon Moss (A38 – Engen Xtreme) will be eager to finish his season on a high note. He started his first year in the Bridgestone Production Car Championship at Zwartkops in March this year and will be aiming to finish the year with a good result to cap his inaugural season in the class.
