CompCare Polo Cup ready to thrill East London

CompCare Polo Cup heads to the East London Grand Prix Circuit with just ten points separating the championship top four and the prospect of more blistering racing between South Africa’s finest young driving talent.

Championship leader, Capetonian Jurie Swart arrives at the Border racetrack in a reduced three-point championship advantage aboard his Bullion IT Racing Polo Cup. Gqeberha driver Clinton Bezuidenhout’s Stu Davidson Construction car and 16 year old Cape lad Tate Bishop’s Angri machine won a race apiece last time out, to narrow the gap to Swart.

Another Cape Town youngster, Charl Visser had a tough previous outing in his Universal Polo but sits just ten points behind leader Swart. It’s just as tight for fifth, with Gauteng pair, Universal lad Dawid van der Merwe, Nathi Msimanga’s Squadra Corse car and another Cape driver, Giordano Lupini’s Bullion IT car fighting it out.

Seasoned VDN Auto entry Dean Venter, rapid Universal rookie Jagger Robertson, and female racer Lonika Maartens’ FP Engineering car round off the top ten. Also keep an eye on rookies Ethan Coetzee and Jason Loosemore, who return after missing the last round to race the Hot Rod World Championship in the UK, Bryce Pillay who impressed last race, Xolela Njumbuxa, Mo Karodia and Karah Hill.

If the seismic last race meeting is anything to go by, the Compcare Polo Cup will thrill East London as part of a full National Extreme Festival program Saturday 6 August.
