The Audi S4 quattros topped the National Production Car Championship (NPCC) last Saturday at the Sasol Race Day held at Zwartkops Raceway.
Gennaro Bonafede (32 – Audi Sasolracing) was the quickest followed by Simon Moss (38 – Engen Xtreme). Hennie Groenewald (8 – Audi Sasolracing) and Michael Stephen (12 – Engen Xtreme). This also meant the first two rows of the starting grid for race one were all Audi.
For Bonafede, starting on pole meant his first race win for the day, with teammate Groenewald in second place and Stephen in third. Moss brought his Audi S4 quattro home for fifth.
With race two a reverse grid, the Audi S4 quattro racers were faced with having to fight their way through the field. By the chequered flag, Groenewald had worked his way up to second place with Stephen fourth and Bonafede fifth and Moss sixth.
For race three it was Bonafede again the lead Audi S4 quattro across the finish line, winning the last race of the day in the process with Stephen in fourth, Groenewald fifth and Moss ending the day in 15th place.
The NPCC entrants will contest their next round for 2015 at Dezzi’s Raceway in KwaZulu-Natal on Saturday, August 29. This will be a first for the field with none of the Audi S4 quattros having competed at the circuit before.
