The second round of the Western Province GTi Challenge was hard on the Garage 34 Class C Golf team, but after a lengthy break from race action, the lads are doubly intent on making amends.
Round 1 winner Ebrahim Levy and his #45 Jive Armien Levy Golf 1 GTi had a less than spectacular day last time out and despite crossing the line first in the second heat, Levy was penalised to end up seventh. “Things never went quite as planned last race,” Ebrahim admitted. “At least our woes lost us the success ballast we were carrying so we should be right on it this weekend - we need to try to win both races.”
The kid on the other side of Killarney’s pit garage 34, fifteen-year old Giordano Lupini is also keen to get a good weekend’s racing behind him following a frustrating first two races in the black and yellow #16 Monroe Racing RSA Bakkie & Car magazine Golf 1: “I’m not making excuses, but we have not been where we should be in the races so far this year,” Giordano explained. “So I’m hoping for a clean weekend - we have done a lot more work on the Monroe Golf - now we just need to convert the pace we know we have into some decent race results.”
The WP GTi Challenge is one of the highlights of a spectacular 14 May Power Series bill — see you at Killarney!
