Round three of the National Production Car Championship (NPCC) sees the four Audi S4 Quattros set to compete at Aldo Scribante Raceway in Port Elizabeth on Saturday June 13. Just two rounds into the season, the Audi S4 Quattro competitors have already taken the top three spots in the series.
Hennie Groenewald (8 – Audi Sasol Racing) currently holds the leading position in the series, with two race wins amongst his total of four podium finishes so far. In true Audi style though, it wouldn’t be exciting if things weren’t close.
Second place is held by Michael Stephen (12 – Engen Xtreme) who, also with four podium results and two race wins, is just a single point behind. For Stephen the Scribante event is on his home turf and he will be using this to his advantage wherever possible.
Round three sees Gennaro Bonafede (32 – Audi Sasolracing) heading to Port Elizabeth with the focus on closing the five-point gap which currently separates him from second place. While Bonafede has a single race win to his name so far, he has been consistently finishing on the podium.
Simon Moss (38 – Engen Xtreme) is another PE racer in the series hoping to make the most of his home-ground knowledge. For Moss the season has yet to deliver a podium result but his laptimes keep him on pace with the leading racers.
Three races of fast-paced, close racing action will take place at Scribante on Saturday, with the Audi S4 Quattro competitors leading the championship chase.
