After their outing to the Free State for the annual Phakisa 200, the Car Care Clinic 111 Sports & Saloons drivers return to Zwartkops Raceway for the third round of their 2019 championship on Saturday, 29 June.
After two round of the championship, Marius Lotz (VW Golf) leads the way in the overall standings, three points ahead of Louis Scholtz (Car Care Clinic Honda) with Danie Deysel (Tyre City Honda CRX) five points further back.
Deysel heads the Class A standings from Wouter Roos (Nathan’s Motorsport VW Golf), Bertus van Jaarsveld (Photizo VW Polo) and Wayne Masters (Performance Masters Polo). The leading quartet should face competition from Lenard Archer (ACD Welkom Hyundai Elantra), George Economides (Wealth Avenue BMW 328i) and Ismail Peck (National Hotrods Mzanzi Honda Civic). Others who could feature include Harry Arangies (Stradale Motorsport Nissan 350Z), Lucas Bezuidenhout (Pretoria Noord Toyota Lexux), Dirk Lawrence (JDM Tuning/Vaal Timbers Honda Ballade) and the father and daughter duo of Kevin (Ford Focus) and Kalyn Miller (Kia).
After a great performance in the Phakisa 200, Scholtz has opened up a 16-point lead at the top of the Class B log. His main rivals at Zwartkops are likely to be Phillip Meyer (LSC Group/Imperial Logistics Porsche 924), Johan van der Vyver (Devlaw Subaru WRX), Veritie-Anne Joubert (Honda Spares Balade) and Waldo Swiegers (Waldo Swiegers Photography VW Golf).
The Class C field is somewhat depleted, with many of the competitors being bumped up to Classes A and B. This leaves Andre Diedericks (ELF Trans Mini Cooper S) and Lourens Taljaard (Loutal Renault Megane) as likely contenders for the win.
Class D should be a battle between Almero van Eck (Taurus VW Polo) and Chris Smit (Captive Toptrans Porsche 924) while the Golfs of Mark Gregory, Marius Lotz and Mark Kingsmill together with the similar car of Richard Hodgson should be at the front of Class E.
About 40 cars will line up for the first race, which gets underway at 08h35 on Saturday with the second race scheduled for 12h00.
