Holliday Jnr accumulated 31 points during the first two rounds of the season. This sees him occupying third place on the Overall points table while trailing Class B leader by 1 point.

During both his previous outings at the circuit he suffered from mechanical difficulties which brought his weekend to an early end. “It will be nice to shake off our fortunes at the circuit and focus on a strong finish. We know that the circuit will be notoriously hard on the tyres so this might be a good circuit to play the long game while staying focussed on scoring a good host of points. After all, this strategy won us a title last year as well.”

Holliday Jnr is also excited about his maiden endurance race campaign. He will be partnered by MotorMart Racing’s Stiaan Kriel for the race with the drivers sharing the Monitor Net Volkswagen Polo.

“I’m looking forward to my debut in this race. As previous class winner, Stiaan will be the ideal driver to share the car with. We don’t want to make any predictions, but we’ll be aiming for a good finish.”
