Bridgestone BMW Club Racing Series – Paulo Loureiro
After a long break between races, the enthusiastic Bridgestone BMW Club Racing Series drivers are itching to get back on the track and thrill the crowds in this popular one-make series. With only four rounds to go, the championship race for the overall title and class honours is starting to get interesting. Just 27 points separate the top ten in the overall title chase, with 20 points on offer at this round.
Class A will see current class leader Julian Fameliaris (Tower Crane Services/Lube-Net – BMW E36 328i Turbo) doing his best to hold off the hard-charging Lorenzo Gualtieri (Savspeed/Powermods/L&R Auto Electric – BMW E36 328i Turbo). The pair had a proper ding-dong battle at Midvaal with less than 0.07 seconds between them on race pace. Dino Fameliaris (C-Tech/Afrivalve – BMW E36 M3 Turbo) makes a welcome return while Stefano Martinelli (Dalucon Insulated Panels – BMW E36 328i Turbo) has not confirmed his participation following damage sustained in the previous round.
