Audi S4 quattros bring the action to PE
information supplied by: Audi South Africa 02 April 2013

THE Audi charge in Port Elizabeth will be led by defending champion and local racer, Michael Stephen (A1 – Engen Xtreme). Stephen has claimed the Bridgestone Production Car title in 2011 and 2012 and is the championship points leader after the first two rounds of this season.

The PE event, which takes place at Aldo Scribante Raceway on Saturday, 6 April, will see Stephen compete on his home track in front of his biggest fans. Along with Stephen will be his teammate, Tschops Sipuka (A2 – Engen Xtreme).

Sipuka claimed the overall victory at round two of the Super Series which took place in Cape Town. From this high-point Sipuka will be aiming to produce an even stronger result on his home circuit.

Gennaro Bonafede (A32 – Ferodo Racing) won his first race of the season in the Western Cape, a just reward for the hard work his team has put in to reach the competition level they have been aiming for. Bonafede will now aim to build on that victory and keep competitive in order to claim maximum points in the coming rounds.

The Audi S4 quattro of Melvill Priest (A7 – Mueller Sports Medicine) has yet to cross the finish line for a win this season, but he has been on the podium more than once and claiming the chequered flag is just a matter of time. For Priest a good qualifying result in PE could play into his hands and provide that race win he is looking for.

As the Aldo Scribante circuit is quite short and narrow, overtaking is notoriously difficult and can be extremely risky. This provides a definite incentive for the racers to aim for a very quick qualifying time in order to start as far forward as possible. In the Bridgestone Production Car championship there is a reverse grid system in place, so racers will have to consider their options very carefully in order to maximise their points haul on the day.
