Team Afrox F30 are at it again... place 1st and 2nd in 2013 Season opener

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
The Team Afrox/ADF Motorsport F30s are off to a good start for the 2013 Bridgestone Super Production Car season! With new livery to boot!
"And when the dust and noise had settled after the first it was pretty much what the pundits had expected, with the BMWs finishing in the order which they qualified: first and second. Johan Fourie romped away with it, Etienne van der Linde riding shotgun – and keeping a train of Audis behind him."

A pair of no-holds-barred metal to metal confrontations was what Killarney spectators witnessed today, as the Bridgestone Super Production Car fields fought for supremacy in the seven-lap sprint.

Class A

And when the dust and noise had settled after the first it was pretty much what the pundits had expected, with the BMWs finishing in the order which they qualified: first and second. Johan Fourie romped away with it, Etienne van der Linde riding shotgun – and keeping a train of Audis behind him.

There was little they were able to do, and the Beemers led a pair of S4s home, with Hennie Groenewald next in his Subaru WRX STi.

Competitors experiencing problems in the heat of battle included Richard Pinard, whose Subaru ingested its brake fluid, leaving him with seriously weakened stopping power, and Michael Stephen, who had his right rear tyre deflate after a wheel to wheel incident with Groenewald, which saw the Audi’s tyre valve ripped out.

Stephen’s second race also went badly, compounded by starting from the back of the grid and he retired after five laps with rising water temperature after a seized pulley dislodged the waterpump belt. His day can only get better.

In was John Mayer on pole in the inverted grid, but he was soon swallowed up in the rolling start, Groenewald making the most of the early congestion to pull ahead in the Subaru. Sipuka, Bonafede and Priest all soon had their Audis ahead of the E90 3-series, with the works BMWs also rapidly getting ahead of Mayer.

Fourie was on a mission to hunt down the Four-Ring cars, but try as he may there were determined not to let the blue and white propeller past. Less than three seconds separated the first six cars at the flag – Van der Linde at the back of that queue – with Pinard and Mayer as some distance.

I wonder what the rules for this class are? Are these stock cars with safety equipment and tire swaps?
