Round 3 of the South African simSS 3 Series takes place this evening at the Magione circuit in Italy.
The tight and twisty nature of the track makes it exceedingly difficult to pass. Qualifying will be vital to a good race result, more so than ever in this championship.
Denis Mitchell (SH Racing) is expected to be challenger at the sharp end of the field. The two time pole setter is yet to win a race this season although a podium finish at Imola is certainly encouraging. Steven Pelser (Revlimit Racing) enters Round 3 hot off his double win at Imola.
Little is known about the pace of newcomers Benjamin Wheeler (NAV Gaming) and Ken Hunter (Xtreme Racing).
A number of drivers have expressed concern about the bumpy surface at the high speed turn 6 corner where during practice a number of cars landed up stuck in the gravel trap not able to re-join the track. It will be one of the more exciting places to watch the race as after the long back straight it offers one of the few chances for an overtaking manoeuvre.
Championship leader Jason Absmeier (Revlimit Racing) will be looking to consolidate his slender championship lead of just 2 points from Basheer Jadwat (Squadro GhostworX). The top 4 drivers separated by just 8 championship points.
The races will be available for viewing this week. Keep an eye on simracesa.co.za
