The race-winning Engen Xtreme Team will be in East London on Saturday, December 3, to wrap up their 2016 national motorsport season. The team has recorded more race wins, fastest laps and podium finishes than any other and will be aiming to add more at the season finale.

For Simon Moss the goal will be to end the year on the overall podium with his Engen Xtreme Audi A3, putting both of the Engen Xtreme Team competitors on the final podium for the season.

A few technical gremlins have haunted Moss at stages this season, but he hasn’t allowed that to hold him back, progressing up to third place overall before the penultimate round at Zwartkops Raceway on Saturday.

Stephen and Moss are confident they will deliver the action for all three of the races scheduled to take place in East London on Saturday. The combination of high-speed racing and the tight corners means lots of late braking and finesse in the handling department to ensure momentum.

The GTC championship has taken the Engen Xtreme team from Zwartkops Raceway in Pretoria, to Killarney Raceway in Cape Town, Aldo Scribante Raceway in Port Elizabeth and up to Kyalami in Johannesburg. The final round of competition sees them back at the coast, this time entertaining crowds at one of South Africa’s most historic circuits.
