Toyota Gazoo Racing SA's Michael van Rooyen is tied in second place and just two points behind log leader Keagan Masters heading into this weekend's final round at Red Star Raceway in Delmas.
He is tied with Audi’s Simon Moss in a three-way championship tussle.
Tight at the top
Van Rooyen says there is only one thing to do and that is to stay ahead of his rivals for the duration of the race.
"The formula is really quite simple. As long as I finish ahead of both Keagan [Masters] and Simon [Moss], I’ll be sitting pretty. But to do that, I really need to nail qualifying on a track that I’ve never raced on before,” explains Van Rooyen.
"In the meantime we’ve gone through the Toyota Corolla with a fine-toothed comb again, checking and making sure that absolutely everything is ready for this weekend’s race," concludes Van Rooyen.
Race action will get under way with practice sessions on Friday, 25 October; with the qualifying session and two races on Saturday, 26 October.
