G&H Extreme Supercars thrill at Aldo Scribante
Charl Arangies put in a dominant performance to take a triple G&H Extreme Supercars victory at Port Elizabeth’s Aldo Scribante racetrack on Saturday. Ricardo meanwhile beat Gianni to Balance of Performance GT3 class honours in the battle of the Giannoccaro Lamborghinis.
Arangies made his intentions fully clear when he circulated Scribante in a stunning 57.140 second lap to put his Class A+ Stradale Into Africa Lamborghini Huracan GT3 onto a formidable pole position. He lined up alongside Dayne Angel’s Autohaus Angel Porsche 911 GT2 on the front row, while Kris Budnik headed up the second row in his delightful rumbling Bucketlist Racing Dodge Viper alongside top tin-top qualifier, Benjamin Morgenrood’s Morgenrood Motors Lexus V8.
Paulo and Rick Loureiro shared row three in their former Class A Production Racing Combined Fast BMW 335is with Jonathan Du Toit next up in his Trans Africa Racing Ferrari F455 GT3. Gianni Giannoccaro was the quickest Balance of Performance qualifier in his G&H Transport Lamborghini Gallardo Supercup from Xolile Letlaka's Stradale Into Africa McLaren and Ricardo Giannoccaro in another GT3 spec BISC Transport Gallardo Supercup.
Ant Blunden topped Class B in his Stradale Motorsport Porsche 911 GT3, Marius Jackson Class B in his MJR Audi R8 GT4 and Uli Sanne Class D in his BMW X3 M Coupe. Mark du Toit’s BoP GT3 Trans Africa Racing Ferrari F430 GT3 and Giacomo Giannoccaro B BISC G&H Lamborghini had both qualifying sessions to forget on a fine, flowery Nelson Mandela Bay spring Saturday morning.
Arangies’ Huracan then made short work to control the opening of the three races and cruise home 3.7 seconds ahead of Dayne Angel’s Porsche and Kris Budnik in the Viper. There was action at the head of the tin-top field as Morgenrood’s Lexus split the Loureiro BMWs, with Paulo for fourth as he diced Rick for sixth as Letlaka, Gianni Giannoccaro, Jono du Toit and Rick Giannoccaro entertained ahead of class winners Blunden, Jackson and Sanne.
Race 2 delivered the dice of the day as Angel made Arangies fight for his second win, while Paulo Loureiro put one over Kris Budnik for third. Letlaka was next up from Jonathan Du Toit as the Ricardo got one back over Gianni in the Giannoccaro battle of the BoP GT3 Lamborghinis. Blunden, Jackson and Sanne took the classes in a race of attrition that saw the demise of Rick Loureiro and Benjamin Morgenrood, who joined Giacomo Giannoccaro and Mark du Toit in the stands.
Angel’s early final race exit left Charl Arangies to trot to victory over the tussling Paulo Loureiro, Morgenrood and Rick Loureiro, and Kris Budnik, while Gianni Giannoccaro took GT3 honours back by under a second from Ricardo. That meant Arangies took the day from Paulo Loureiro and Kris Budnik. Ricardo took GT3 for the day from Gianni Giannoccaro by all of two seconds, Jonathan Du Toit took Class A, Ant Blunden B, Marius Jackson C and Uli Sanne Class D.
All of which leaves it down to Zwartkops' 13 November finale to determine who will be both the Balance of Performance GT3 and overall G&A Extreme Supercars champions for 2021...
