Saturday’s instalment of the Sahara Production Car Championship at Kyalami will host the biggest entry of any meeting in this year’s Vodacom Power Tour.

The BMW 330i trio of Anthony Taylor, Hennie Groenewald and Etienne van der Linde will have a power advantage over other Production Car Class A cars in East London, but the good handling of the A4 3,2 V6 quattros could be decisive in Rounds 11 and 12.
