Engen Xtreme drivers prepare for Engen National Race Day

Wednesday, 27 July 2011

The mid season break comes to an end on Saturday 6, August 2011 as the drivers from the Engen Xtreme Team make their way to Aldo Scribante raceway in Port Elizabeth for the second Engen National Race Day in the 2011 season.

After their last meeting at Phakisa Raceway, the Engen Xtreme Team look to improve on their performance at upcoming race meeting. ‘With the hopes of winning at Phakisa, the team were disappointed not to bring back the results they had hoped for. With an eight week break in the calendar, the team will be hard at work to ensure that they can fight for wins at their home track in PE on the 6th of August,’ remarked Terry Moss, Team Principal.

Engen Xtreme Michael Stephen completed the day in 4th position overall with Tschops Sipuka coming in at a close 6th. The cars took some strain in Welkom having been knocked off circuit a few times and not forgetting the 2 hour endurance race for the Bridgestone Production Cars. Although the Engen VW Polo Cup team experienced some challenges, they concluded round four with Miguel Pasqualli in 3rd (Masters) and teammate Kosie Weyers in 3rd position.

Weyers lies 2nd on the log, just 37 points behind Devon Robertson but will be looking to bridge the gap when they next meet.
