The MotorMart Racing driver currently heads up the Class B points table with 32 points behind his name while occupying second place in the overall championship. The unfortunate events of Round 2 saw him sacrificing 11 points, but he will not be deterred from delivering a strong performance at Midvaal Raceway.
“Catching up with Rory (Atkinson) in Class A will be a tough challenge, but not impossible.” Says Kriel. “My focus will be on maintaining my lead in Class B. Myself, Deon (Holliday Jnr) and Jacques (Smith) have dominated Class B on track and there’s only 6 points separating us on the points table. My form at Midvaal Raceway has been good throughout my three previous Class A visits, also against stiff competition. I am confident heading into the weekend.”
Midvaal Raceway has built up a reputation for being hard on both the car and driver, but Kriel is remains confident that a strong result is on the cards: “I think every circuit in the country offers its own unique challenges to deal with. That is an aspect that makes them all interesting. At Midvaal you know you will have to ride the bumps; therefore this is something that you can plan for and work on during preparation.”
