Jadwat becomes 2018.1 SA simGT Series Drivers’ Champion after frantic race start duel with Langeveldt at Road America

The 2018.1 SA simGT Series Drivers' Championship hangs in the balance, Jadwat under pressure from Langevedlt at Road America.

GhostworX Racing’s Basheer Jadwat has won Sim Race South Africa’s flagship championship; the SA simGT Series, for the third time. A highly competitive, 57 entry strong, season took Jadwat two victories and two runner-up finishes to seal the 2018.1 drivers’ title.

Jadwat’s closest championship contender, Christopher Langeveldt, tried his utmost to re-pass Jadwat for the lead during the opening three laps of Round 4 of the championship at Road America, resulting in what can only be described as quality wheel to wheel sim racing action (The battle can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/p4T7oNMoY44?t=23m19s ).

As Drivers’ Champion of the 2018.1 SA simGT Series season, Jadwat has won a Simtech X3 Button Box sponsored by SimTech Simulation Equipment.

With just 24 points (100 points remaining) separating GhostworX Racing (Basheer Jadwat, and Markus Steyn) and RedLine Racing (Christopher Langeveldt, and Pieter Geldenhuys), the Teams’ Championship is not yet decided and will go down to the fifth and final round, virtually at the Nordschleife circuit, on 11 June 2018.
