This weekend the Border Motorsport East London Grand Prix Circuit plays host to Round 6 of the 2019 Falken Polo Cup. Championship leader, Brad Liebenberg, will want to continue his good form and leave the Eastern Cape having extended his championship lead and edge ever closer to his maiden circuit-racing title.
Liebenberg, who didn’t have the best start to his 2019 campaign, has played catch up from the opening round. Several gritty performances in recent rounds, including a hat-trick of wins in Port Elizabeth, has seen Liebenberg take the outright lead of the championship. Six victories from his last eight races has given Liebenberg a 17-point cushion over his nearest championship rival, Jeffrey Kruger.
“We’re happy to be leading the championship heading into East London. The team has worked really hard to get me here and I owe a lot to Freddie (Pretorius) and the team. As for the race weekend, we will continue to focus on each session individually always trying to improve the car. Come the qualifying session I’ll have to be on my best, and try to put my Hello Mobile Polo on pole. That’s my first priority. Then we can strategise as to what’s the best for the race,” said Liebenberg.
Three practice sessions are scheduled for Friday ahead of an early Saturday morning’s qualifying session followed by two races. You can follow his progress on his Facebook page: www.facebook.com/bradliebenbergracing
