Most SA racers yet
THIS weekend will see what is believed to be a record number of South Africans racing in several top series across the world.
The action starts in Germany and England on Saturday afternoon when SA duo Kelvin van der Linde and Jordan Pepper race in the opening round of the ADAC GT Masters at Oschersleben, while young Jonathan Aberdein makes his ADAC German Formula 4 debut at the same meeting.
In England Eugene Denyssen and Sisa Ngebulana will be racing in British Formula 3 at Brands Hatch. At Long Beach, California, Stephen Simpson will race in IMSA sports cars. The SA A1 GP driver from Cape Town finds himself at the top end of the U.S. IMSA Prototype Challenge championship following victory in the Daytona 24 and fourth place in the 12 hours of Sebring.
The classic street circuit in Long Beach, California, is the most popular weekend race in the state, and his team is in a close fight for the IMSA Prototype Challenge championship lead.
In the UK, Pepper is set for his first race for Bentley in the German Adac GT Masters series opener at Oschersleben.
The experienced Van der Linde said he is ready for his third year of racing in the German ADAC GT Masters series. The 2014 champion in his rookie year in the series shares his 440kW V10 Audi R8 LMS with Spanish driver Isaac Tutumlu-Lopez.
