Tough Polo day for the guys & girls

Campos Racing endured a day to forget at Killarney’s Falken Polo Cup races. All three team drivers - Keegan and Jason Campos and Tasmin Pepper, who made a return to the series, struggled to find the right set-up through the Cape Town weekend, which led to a fraught fight for all three among the squabbling mid-pack.

Keegan Campos was not on his regular pace at Killarney as he struggled to get on top of his Campos Transport Polo. “That was a weekend I need to forget as soon as possible,” Keegan admitted. “We worked so hard to get it right, but just could not get the car to work as I needed it and after qualifying deep in the bunch, it was always going to be a tough weekend and all I could do was scrounge a point or two. “Now we must prepare as best we can for the season finale at Red Star in a month's time." 

Jason Campos and his Turn1 Insurance Polo struggled through a weekend to forget, that ended unceremoniously in the Killarney Turn 4 tyre wall at the end of race 2. “Thank you to Tazz for helping us once again as her data showed that we were lacking low end torque, which affected us out the corners. “Nevertheless, the racing was hard as always and I fought to try get something from the weekend. 

“I struggled to qualify 16th, but drove my heart out to get up to 11th in the opening race and was on the way to doing the same in the second heat, when I was taken out of tenth. “Not sure why guys drive like it’s dodgem cars and I was furious at the time, which cost me too, but he was excluded from the results. “Not that it helps at all — my car is wrecked and I'll miss the last race before moving up to another class, so that's probably my final Polo Cup race.” 

Tasmin Pepper likewise endured a weekend to forget on her Polo Cup return aboard her Plastomark Polo. “It was a tough day, that’s all!” Tasmin summed it up. “I struggled with the car all weekend.” The team now prepares for the Falken Polo Cup finale at Red Star near Delmas in Mpumalanga on 26 October, where Keegan will chase to make up that championship lost ground.
