Engen Motorsport Press Release
The Engen Xtreme team opened their 2014 national racing season on a strong note. The brace of Audi S4 quattros contested the first round of the Super Series at Zwartkops Raceway on Saturday, claiming second and fourth overall on the day.
For three-time Bridgestone Production Car champion, Michael Stephen (A1), the first round saw him claim a third place finish and a race win. While the other drivers managed a fast pace during the opening race on the day, when the heavens opened, and on a wet surface, it was Stephen's experience and talent that saw him take the chequered flag in the all-important feature race which had double championship points on offer.
Alongside Stephen was his new teammate, Simon Moss (A38). The Zwartkops event was Moss' first national outing in the Engen Audi S4 quattro and limited seat-time in the run-up to the 2014 season has seen him working hard to master the new car and top tier championship race category.
Going into round two at Killarney at the end of March, the Engen Xtreme drivers currently hold second and fourth overall in the Bridgestone Production Car Championship and with seven rounds to go in the national season, they are in a strong position to build on a solid start.
