Consistent lap times, combined with misfortune for a couple of his rivals, saw Louis Scholtz (Car Care Clinic Honda Civic) finish as the leading autObarn SuperHatch competitor in a slightly curtailed Phakisa 200 at the Free State circuit on Saturday, 15 September 2018.

As is often the case in longer races, mechanical issues can have a major effect on the outcome. With the two Class A championship rivals, Jonathan du Toit and Brett Garland, teaming up to drive Garland’s autObarn/Total Honda Civic it was difficult to see anyone else taking overall autoBarn SuperHatch honours and, approaching the half-distance mark, they had built up a commanding lead.

Many of the drivers will be sharing their cars with other drivers and one of the more interesting combinations is that of normally fierce rivals Brett Garland and Jonathan du Toit. The pair, who have shared all but one of the Class A wins between them this season, will be hard to beat around the 4.24km circuit in Garland’s autObarn/Total Honda Civic. Andre Dannhauser (Pro Auto Rubber/Jetstik Opel Corsa), who lies second in the Class A championship standings, has teamed up with Tyler Scott to tackle the event and will be looking to repeat the good form he has shown in previous years at this event. Nic Martin will be sharing his Rex Diff & Gearbox Opel Kadett with Morne Human while Chris Davison has enlisted the help of VW Challenge regular, Stuart Mack,… Continue reading
