Simon Moss was just two points adrift, ahead of the final round of the GTC Championship at Redstar Raceway. With the most wins to his name, and leader of the championship for the first six rounds, he was one of the top favourites for the crown. As lady luck would have it, Moss by tack position, had just reclaimed the championship lead when a mistake by another competitor resulted in a huge accident - putting paid to any championship hopes.
The preparations before the last round were less than ideal for the All Power Audi Team, besides the fact that Simon Moss and Tschops Sipuka were the only two drivers that had never been to Redstar Raceway. The four kilometre Delmas Racetrack, which is known for its tight twists and turns, was an extra hurdle to overcome.
Race 1: At the rolling start, Moss was able to put championship leader, Keagan Masters, under pressure and took second position. “The car felt really good and I knew I was able to push the All Power Audi the way I wanted to,” Moss explained. By turn five, Moss showed a strong pace and piled the pressure onto Wolk, who went off the circuit. Wolk’s attempted recovery resulted in the accident that ended Moss’s championship aspirations. Tschops Sipuka saved the honour for the All Power Audi Team with a fourth position.
