Just two national championship rounds remain for the Engen Xtreme Team – one event scheduled for Zwartkops Raceway in November and the finale set for East London in December. Both Engen Xtreme Audi A3s are in the top three of the championship, with Michael Stephen leading and Simon Moss in third place.
The first four rounds of the season has seen Engen Xtreme’s Michael Stephen amass 511 points and, with just the last two events to go, he is 153 points ahead of his nearest rival. This is at a point in the championship where the Sasol GTC Africa competitors are heading to the circuit where they started the season – and Stephen made a clean sweep, winning both races, claiming both pole position starts and set the fastest lap in each race.
Moss returns to Zwartkops Raceway on a strong footing, with an eye on second place in the championship – which is within reach with more than 200 points still up for grabs this season.
Moss has become progressively stronger this season, recovering from a technically difficult start this year to be amongst the top three racers as the inaugural GTC season builds to the climax.
Between Stephen and Moss, they have successfully campaigned their Audi A3 GTC entries to place a stamp of Engen Xtreme Team dominance on the new GTC series. Ten races have taken place, Stephen has won seven and appeared on the podium in every race and Moss has been on the podium four times, his best result so far in second place.
No other team even comes close to these results and it is going to be tough for anyone to change that with just two rounds remaining.
The Engen Xtreme team contests the Zwartkops event in Pretoria on Saturday, November 26, where they will show what has made them such a force to be reckoned with in national competition. Michael Stephen and Simon Moss will be showcasing their driving talent in the Engen Xtreme Audi A3 GTCs in two races of the Extreme Festival.
