Jonathan Mogotsi and Charl Visser lead SupaCup way to Aldo

It’s a big weekend for the team as Volkswagen Motorsport prepares for its home round of the 2024 National Extreme Festival at Aldo Scribante racetrack in Gqeberha on Saturday 29 June. 

“Aldo Scribante is Volkswagen Motorsport’s home Extreme Festival round and we plan to make it one to remember for our loyal Gqeberha race fans,” Mike Rowe, Head of Volkswagen Motorsport promises. “Our headquarters are just up the road at Kariega and Aldo is always a great weekend with all the support from the guys at the plant, so it's great to come home in a dominant position in the SATC SupaCup title chase and with our rookie top of the first year drivers in Astron Energy Polo Cup.”

Jonathan Mogotsi leads the SATC SupaCup championship six races into the season, with 2023 Polo Cup champion teammate, rookie Charl Michael Visser sitting a strong third. While Visser earned his Volkswagen Motorsport drive by winning the 2023 championship, team Astron Energy Polo Cup driver, brother Kyle Visser won his seat by taking the inaugural Volkswagen Rookie Cup title in 2023. All three drivers are keen to impress at the team’s home races on Saturday.

“Aldo Scribante is always an important race weekend for Volkswagen Motorsport,” Jonathan Mogotsi confirms. “It’s our home race and we have an awful lot of fans and colleagues coming to support us there, which adds as much pressure as it does pleasure to our weekend. That’s why we will put our best foot forward, but this year we arrive in a strong title position and ready to fly the Volkswagen flag with pride. I can’t wait!”

Charl Micheal Visser is no stranger to Aldo Scribante. He plans to use that to his advantage on his first visit to the circuit as a Volkswagen Motorsport driver. “I love Aldo Scribante!” Charl Michael admits. “I scored a double victory there in Polo Cup last year, and I have already had some success driving a SupaPolo in endurance and regional races at Aldo too. So I’m more than ready to treat it as my home race this year, and to thrill the Volkswagen people and other Gqeberha race fans.”

Astron Energy Polo Cup rookie Kyle Visser likewise cannot wait to impress the Aldo Scribante crowd in his first national championship outing there. “I have raced at Aldo Scribante before when the Cape GTi Challenge visited, so I know my way around, which is an advantage,” Kyle elaborates. “It’s also so exciting to come to Gqeberha as a Volkswagen factory driver, so this is one race I have already long been counting the sleeps for.” 
“Aldo Scribante is always Volkswagen Motorsport’s most important race of the year for obvious reasons,” Mike Rowe concludes. “That’s what makes our home race so special, so we’re looking forward to thrilling our fans with great action on Saturday 29 June. See you at Aldo.”
