Iain’s kids ready to star in the Cape

Pepper Racing heads to the Killarney International Raceway with a spring in its step for the seventh round of the Engen Volkswagen Cup, which visits the Cape Town Race Track as part of the circuit’s Extreme Festival races Saturday 9 September. The racetrack at the foot of Table Mountain has proven a happy hunting ground for the team over the years and team boss Iain Pepper is hoping for a lot more success there next weekend.

“Killarney has mostly been good to us so we are hoping that's the muti we need to turn the corner following a few races without a win this year. “Shaun and Tasmin have the place taped and Daniel likes it there too.”

Tasmin Pepper has been a regular winner at Killarney over the years and the Campos Transport/Alpine Motors Pepper Racing Polo lass is keen to return to her winning ways there come next Saturday: “We’re heading to my favourite circuit on the calendar!” Tasmin warned. “Cape Town has always been good to me and I’m looking forward to some close racing — it’s time to bring some wins home — the boys have had enough chances!”

Pepper’s Masters class teammate Shaun La Réservée is likely to be the biggest thorn in her side though — the Durban Alpine Motors Pepper Racing Polo pilot being another regular Polo winner in the Cape. “I’m Really looking forward to getting back into the car at the Mother City!” Shaun admitted. “Cape Town has always been good to us as a team and I can’t wait to get back to winning ways under that mountain.”

Pepper Racing Junior driver, Ballito youngster Daniel Duminy has had a tough year in the SMD Pepper Racing Polo but he’s keen to harness more of the excellent pace he has shown when all went well. “I’m looking forward to a good race week,” Daniel confirmed. “Thanks to the team for the hard work — let’s go get a good result!”
