It's Lamborghini vs. Porsche vs. the Rest in Pretoria

The first two rounds of the G+H Extreme Supercar championship have seen visiting drivers show the locals up each time. First, Cape Town lad Dayne Angel’s turbocharged Class A+ Autohaus Angel Porsche GT2R dominated the opening round at Zwartkops’ Passion for Speed. And then Pretoria driver Jonathan du Toit's naturally aspirated Trans Africa Racing Lamborghini thrived in the thick coastal air to return the favour, as he emerged victorious at Killarney’s second round in Cape Town.

Not that either Angel or du Toit is guaranteed of a result when the G+H Extreme Supercars return to Zwartkops for the second round Extreme Festival races Saturday 23 April. Not only do they have to deal with the likes of A+ pair, Franco Scribante’s mad Porsche 911 GT2 coming back on song, and Ben Morgenrood in Ben Morgenrood Motors Lexus V8 to deal with, but the South African GT3 brigade will be out in force too. And any of them are capable of winning at a heartbeat.

Killarney winner Jonathan du Toit indeed races in the balance of performance GT3 class in his Trans Africa Racing Lamborghini Huracan. But expect Gianni Giannoccaro to make all their lives difficult in his new turbocharged G+H Transport Nissan GTR GT3. Never discount champion Charl Arangies' Stradale Into Africa Audi R8 LMS GT3 or Lamborghini duo, Greg Parton Drizit Environmental Huracan and Ricky Giannoccaro's G&H Transport Lamborghini Supertrafeo either.

In the classes, Damian Hammond's Trinity Lamborghini Supertrafeo will have Nicky Dicks' Stradale Into Africa Porsche 997 GT3 Cup to deal with in A, while word has it that Ant Blunden has a latest spec SAJC GSP Porsche 997 GT3 Cup at his disposal. Marius Jackson is also up a class to B in his MJR Audi R8 LMS GT3, with Kwanda Mokoena a new face in an Amandla Coal Into Africa Audi R8 LMS GT4. Johan Hatting's Stradale Nissan 350Z will take on Ryan Quan-Chai and Uli Sanne’s BMW Z4Ms in ‘baby' Class D.

The G+H Extreme Supercars race alongside a full program of national racing at Zwartkops' National Extreme Festival. Adult entry is R130 per person, students get in for R90 and kids under 12 are free. Sounds like an excellent way to spend your Saturday 23 April!
