The 2017 Extreme Festival will end on a high note at the Zwartkops Raceway near Pretoria this Saturday (November 25) with eight separate racing disciplines set to entertain spectators.
Given a bit of luck and two victories, Gennaro Bonafede (Sasol BMW) could emerge as the year’s overall Sasol Global Touring Car champion
Heading up proceedings will be two races for Sasol Global Touring Cars, with the season’s overall championship outcome to be determined.
Fighting for the title will be Michael Stephen (Engen Xtreme Audi) and Gennaro Bonafede (Sasol BMW). There are many permutations, but two third places on the day should be enough to crown Stephen, while Bonafede will need to win both races to give him a shot at the title.
Others, able to interfere with their struggle, will include Simon Moss (Engen Xtreme Audi), Johan Fourie (EPS Couriers BMW), Robert Wolk (Sasol BMW), Mathew Hodges (VW Motorsport Jetta), Michael van Rooyen (RSC BMW) and Daniel Rowe (VW Motorsport Jetta).
Already crowned 2017 category champion Keagan Masters (VW Motorsport Golf GTI) will lead the GTC2 entry, with his closest adversaries people like Trevor Bland (TB Golf GTI), Chris Shorter (Champion MINI JCW), Bradley Liebenberg (Ferodo MINI JCW), Charl Smalberger (VW Golf GTI), Mandla Mdakane (VW Motorsport Golf GTI), Iain Stevenson (Comsol Honda Civic) and Juan Gerber (Comsol Golf GTI).
