Despite missing the opening round of the season, he trails Jacques Smith by four points heading into Round 8. Along with his second place on the Class B table, he’s also occupying fourth place on the category championship table. In both, the battle will be between Smith, Holliday Jnr and fellow Class B competitor Chris Dale; the trio respectively on 89, 85 and 82 points.
“2018 has been an exciting season in Class B.” says Holliday Jnr ahead of Round 8. “It’s quite good that the battle in our class in going down to the wire. Granted, this was hugely helped on by Jacques’ not scoring points in the previous round. Being in with a chance means that we’ll be working towards making the most of that chance.”
The previous round, also hosted at Zwartkops Raceway, saw Holliday Jnr taking two second place finishes for the day: “We know we’ll have to push quite a bit harder this time around, but it’s a challenge that we’re ready for.”
Round 8 of the championship will form part of the final Extreme Festival for 2018. Tickets for the event can be purchased at the venue on the day for R120.00/adult, R90.00/student and with children under the age of 12 entering for free. Fans of Deon Holliday Jnr are also invited to follow the RacePics.co.za Facebook page for updates throughout the weekend.
In addition, he would also like to acknowledge and thank the associate sponsors of the MotorMart VW Challenge for making this exciting category possible: Norbrake Distribution, ATE Brakes, Dicktator Engine Management Systems, Yaskawa, Pozidrive and BPM Engineering.
