Engen Audi Xtreme team ready themselves for Kyalami

Tuesday, 24 March 2009

After the event filled first race day in the WesBank Super Series in Port Elizabeth earlier this month, the Engen Xtreme team outfit based in PE is feverishly preparing for the trek north to the hallowed Kyalami track for the next instalment in the series on 28 March 2009.

Kyalami has always been a successful track for the Xtreme team, having proved happy hunting grounds for all drivers, but most favourably for Engen Polo Cup driver Miguel Pasqualli. Miguel in his last outing at Kyalami qualified first on pole for both his heats, and then went on to win both races in fine style. It also proved to be successful for Shaun and Michael both winning their respective heats.

The team is hoping to recreate some of that magic at the weekend. Also after the damage caused to the Audi's, team principal, Terry Moss and his technical team have had to do extensive panel beating to both vehicles at a cost of approximately R50 000. Fortunately the drive trains of the cars were not damaged in any way, which is more than can be said for Richard Wolk in his BMW, who has been banned for three races as a result of his 'reckless' driving in Heat 1.

This weekend the team will however be squarely focussed on winning all heats, so as to capitalise on their good start and attempt to score maximum points to further the gap on their nearest rivals.
