SARR presents the Sasol GTC Africa.

Welcome to Round Two hosted by SARR via Forza Motorsport 6. Cloudy skies and a wet track out at Silverstone (Aldo Scribante). Three planned races for the day as the cars sit in the Pit Lane, awaiting the Safety Cars test of the track. The Safety Car leads the GTC Africa Cars around the track, ducks into the pit entrance at the last second and the cars unleash their full power onto the wet tarmac.

Here is a rundown on what took place on track for Round Two.

Race 1 Qualifying
1st Place : ZAR JerseyRules (Mathew Hodges)
2nd Place : RiSSt11 (Michael Stephen)
3rd Place : SLIDESCIENCE (Gennaro Bonafede)

Round 2 – Race 1

Rolling start as the cars head to the line with ZAR JerseyRules (Mathew Hodges) leading. RiSSt11 (Michael Stephen) takes the lead as the cars struggle for traction with the Apex that is flooded. ZAR JerseyRules (Mathew Hodges) and SLIDESCIENCE (Gennaro Bonafede) exchange paint as they both spin out in with cars avoiding left, right and centre. HyPoXiA ZA (Simon Moss) in the Audi hits a puddle and almost loses it, keeping it under control but losing out to R0B ZOMB13 (Michael van Rooyen) as he takes the inside line overtake. RickyBobby ZA (Graeme Nathan) had the EPS BMW driven by Reiku San (Johan Fourie) all over him, but the VW was making it difficult to past. UmlunguZA (Hennie Groenewald) had his sight on the Audi of RiSSt11 (Michael Stephen) whom almost gave his position up as the wet rumble strips were quite tricky.

1st Place : RiSSt11 (Michael Stephen)

Round 2 – Race 2

RickyBobby ZA (Graeme Nathan) leads the drivers over the line in the VW. Drivers trying to avoid that first corner apex puddle at all cost. ZAR JerseyRules (Mathew Hodges) with the help of RickyBobby ZA (Graeme Nathan) goes into a drift after a light tap. Reiku San (Johan Fourie) and UmlunguZA (Hennie Groenewald) in a battle get a little too close for comfort and the two BMW’s both spin off track. SLIDESCIENCE (Gennaro Bonafede) takes a dive into the inside of RiSSt11 (Michael Stephen) and squeezes by. HyPoXiA ZA (Simon Moss) has UmlunguZA (Hennie Groenewald) all over him whilst he is focusing on the VW of ZAR JerseyRules (Mathew Hodges). R0B ZOMB13 (Michael van Rooyen) in the middle of the pack had all his focus on chasing down the leaders whilst keeping the rest behind him. Mid-Race saw devastation for SLIDESCIENCE (Gennaro Bonafede) as a mechanical failure sends him off track, losing out of his 2nd place and dropping down the last place. SLIDESCIENCE (Gennaro Bonafede) doesn’t give up and gets the injured Sasol BMW back on track and on the attack again.

Round 2 – Race 3

Slightly wetter track as the rain pours down with ZAR JerseyRules (Mathew Hodges) leading. Avoiding the water covered Apex, ZAR JerseyRules (Mathew Hodges) loses out on poll to team mate RickyBobby ZA (Graeme Nathan). Hard on the brakes as drivers push the cars to the limits in the final race of round 2. A massive 4 car pile-up occurs heading onto the back straight. SLIDESCIENCE (Gennaro Bonafede), R0B ZOMB13 (Michael van Rooyen), Reiku San (Johan Fourie) and ZAR JerseyRules (Mathew Hodges) collide and the drivers spin out, but get back on the attack, fiercer than ever. UmlunguZA (Hennie Groenewald) has RiSSt11 (Michael Stephen) all over the BMW, making the rear as wide as possible to keep the Audi behind him. Reiku San (Johan Fourie) and SLIDESCIENCE (Gennaro Bonafede) are in an All-Out battle to the very end.

Race 3 Results
1st Place : RickyBobby ZA (Graeme Nathan)
2nd Place : SLIDESCIENCE (Gennaro Bonafede)
3rd Place : RiSSt11 (Michael Stephen)
