Intimate knowledge of the Aldo Scribante Raceway will stand the Engen Xtreme Team in good stead as the Sasol GTC Africa heads to the Bay for round five of the 2017 championship on Saturday, July 15th.

Engen Xtreme Team drivers Michael Stephen and Simon Moss currently lie 2nd and 3rd respectively in the race for championship honours. The duo will be hoping a strong showing on their “home” track will help close the gap on leader Gennaro Bonafede.

“The home event is a highlight on the national calendar for the Engen Xtreme Team,” says Terry Moss, team principal of Terry Moss Racing.

“Simon and Michael enjoy racing in front of their home supporters. Most of their passionate fans come out for this race day – the only opportunity in the season they have to see the national racing locally.”

Defending Sasol GTC Africa champion Stephen has bounced back from a challenging start to the season. He takes his Engen Xtreme Audi A3 to Scribante fresh from overall victory at Zwartkops and as winner of four of the last five races. The Engen Xtreme Team will face a challenging yet exciting race day as they navigate the narrow circuit.

Cheered on by their hometown fans, Stephen and Moss will be looking to make a real statement of intent as the Sasol GTC Africa hits the business end of the season.
