Michelin Cup Event

Round 6


Michelin Cup Round 6 Skidpan


Round 6 of the Michelin Cup took place at Zwartkops Raceway. This was a great day weather wise, by mid-morning, it felt like a summer’s day!

The wet and slippery skidpan levels the playing field, where the high-powered cars and those with a bit less torque, can run the same times on the 2 separate courses that were set up. This course allows drivers’ skills to trump power, the winners on these tracks not necessarily those with the fastest cars!

As expected, fastest on the day was Anton Wannenburg in his black Iwheelssa Subaru, with a total time of 02:54.310, the all-wheel drive being exploited properly. He could have been even faster, as his runs also included a bit of an awesome show! Another impressive one to watch was Haydn Von Imhof in his S3 Sedan (on Michelin tyres of course) with a fast time of 02:57.910, netting him a 4th place overall. A total time of 03:03.660 saw Wikus Dippenaar beating many bigger and more powerful cars into submission, showing that his front-wheel drive Delarey Racing Developments VW Caddy is a force to be reckoned with. Fastest lady of the day was Nasmee'a Christian-de Oliveira in her Audi S3 with a brilliant time of 03:06.220, again exploiting a great drivetrain.

It was another smooth and successful event, with a few familiar faces missing, but there were some new day entries too. The coolest of the new entries was Nico Swanepoel in his automatic, 43 year old Ford Escort… it was like seeing an antique on the skidpan.
