Miguel Haasbroek TQ’s and wins S.A nats Rd4, claiming his 3rd title!

The 4th and final round of the South African championships took place at Mandalay Raceway located in Pietermaritzburg, about one hour north of Durban.

Qualifying took place and JQ-Racing/REDS/AKA driver Miguel Haasbroek took an unexpected TQ ahead of South African legend Dean Steenmans in 2nd. Warren van der Merwe would round off the top 3.

In the main Dean failed to start the race as he suffered from a technical issue in the warm up. The race got underway and Miguel took an early lead with Warren looking very racy.
Miguel and Warren swapped places for the first half of the race, however, Miguel managed to pull away from Warren and never looked back ending up a lap ahead of the field. Justin van Biljon took the final podium spot.

Miguel’s successful weekend would see him become South African Champion for the 3rd time. Tiaan Oelofse would finish 2nd overall with Warren van der Merwe rounding off the top 3 for 2014.

    JQRacing - THEDriver Funding

    There is something that bothers me in this ranking, does it bother you? It stings my eyes .... This ranking shows the 25 best drivers in the world, but only car brands that can afford these drivers, and those brands are always the same. If it is only a question of money now, why don't we, the JQ customers, team drivers, and supporters, help to pay a driver for this list?
