The popular BMW CCG Club Racing Series joined the national Super Series Roadshow for their swansong event at Zwartkops Raceway on Saturday 1 November 2014. The penultimate round of the BMW CCG Club Racing Series certainly made all and sundry sit up and take notice with two action packed heats keeping race fans on their feet. The dedicated competitors of this well organised series produced some of the most exciting racing on the day with all four classes producing close racing throughout the field.
Sav Gaultieri (F30 335i) made the long awaited debut of his new racer and promptly grabbed pole position in the process by almost a full second over Kris Budnik (E46 M3 GT). Ricky Giannoccaro (E46 M3 GTR) picked up where he left off at the previous race when he grabbed the class B pole ahead of team mate Thouca Mechanicos (E46 M3 Ti GTR). Lee Jones (E39 M5) dominated the class C qualifying only to break out and receive a 5 place grid penalty. This put Dino Fameliaris (E36 M3) on the front row of the class with Justin Robertson (E36 328i) alongside him. Johan Dreyer (E46 330i) continued his good form and once again grabbed the class D honours with championship rival Mike Salt (E36 323i) lining up alongside him.
The final round of the year at Zwartkops Raceway on 29 November will no doubt see all guns come out blazing! All four of the individual class titles still need to be decided, as well as the coveted Overall title.
