The MotorMart Racing Team will be taking on another double-header race weekend at Zwartkops Raceway’s annual Winter Challenge.
June 28-29 will see them continuing their championship assault in Round 4 of the 2019 MotorMart VW Challenge. Two of the team’s drivers will also be competing in the Car Care Clinic 111 Sports & Saloons category.
In the MotorMart VW Challenge, Mohamed Dangor will aim to improve his results in Class A. The MotorMart Klerksdorp dealership owner has been edging closer to the front of the field; constantly finding himself in podium-position battles. With the Pretoria based circuit also being the regular test venue for the team, he will have his sights set on top-three finishes in Saturday’s two races.
Stiaan Kriel still remains the man to beat in Class B. He will aim to strengthen his position in the championship by adding two more wins to his tally for the season. Robbie da Silva has shown good form in Round 3 which also saw him recording his first double-finish for the season. The return to Zwartkops Raceway could see closer to the front group.
In addition, both Dangor and Da Silva will be competing in the Car Care Clinic 111 Sports & Saloons races. The purpose of this will be for both drivers to increase their amount of track time.
The Zwarkops Winter Challenge will see a different schedule compared to normal provide adequate track time for the third round of the MOPAR South African Endurance Series. Friday will see four timed practice sessions for both the MotorMart VW Challenge as well as the Car Care Clinic 111 Sports & Saloons. Qualifying is also scheduled for Friday afternoon at the following times.
