The driver of the Monitor Net Volkswagen Polo has accumulated 31 points heading into the third round of the 2019 championship. This sees him occupying third place on the Overall points table while trailing Class B leader Stiaan Kriel by 1 point.
“It is certainly a very close battle at the front at present. Granted, Stiaan’s misfortune at the end of Round 2 gave all of us a chance to close the gap a bit. We now however must make the most of it. Second place is a good position to find myself in for now, but it’s not where I’m planning on finishing the season” says the reigning Class B title holder.
A factor to contend with will be the nature of the anti-clockwise circuit in Meyerton: “Midvaal will be bumpy and tyre preservation will be a key aspect. The right setup will be also be vital in our aim to be competitive at the front.”
Supporters of Deon Holliday Jnr are also invited to follow his progress throughout the weekend on the RacePics.co.za Facebook page: www.Facebook.com/RacePics.co.za.
