Killarney Raceway hosted the penultimate round of the National Production Car Championship (NPCC) on Saturday. As per usual, it was the Audi S4 quattro racers that set the pace and dominated the leaderboard.
In qualifying, it was Hennie Groenewald (8 – Audi Sasolracing) and Gennaro Bonafede (32 – Audi Sasolracing) who posted the top qualifying times, setting the scene for the Audi S4 quattros to lead the pack on race day.
Race one saw the pair claim first and second respectively with Port Elizabeth racers Michael Stephen (12 – Engen Xtreme) and Simon Moss (38 – Engen Xtreme) finishing third and fourth, making it a clean sweep for the Audi S4 quattro competitors.
The second race saw Stephen cross the line for second place, followed by Groenewald, Moss and Bonafede and the race three result saw Groenewald claim the chequered flag with Stephen third and Moss fourth. Bonafede finished that race in ninth.
Groenewald, Stephen and Moss claimed the top three finishing positions for the day at Killarney on Saturday, putting three of the four Audi S4 quattros into the top overall positions on the day.
These results see the championship advantage swing from Stephen to Groenewald going into the final round which takes place at Zwartkops Raceway in just two weeks – on Saturday, November 7. The NPCC finale is going to see the Audi S4 quattro competitors battle it out amongst themselves to decide who the 2015 champion will be.
