South African Endurance Series: African 6 Hours Phakisa, Race Result

The racing debut of the Mountune engined Pilbeam MP100 saw the car finish the Phakisa 6 Hours but well down to the eventual race winning Juno SS3 CN car of Harp Motorsport, the LMP2 car had run as high as second, running 1/2 with the sister Team Africa Le Mans CN class Pilbeam MP989 (with the smaller car leading).

The pair thought were two of several of the prototypes in the field hit mechanical trouble allowing the The Hankook backed #11 car of Steve Humble, Johan Engelbrecht and Colin Plit to come through for the win.

The Porsche SA backed 911 GT3 Cup of Peter Wharton-Hood and Toby Venter came home second overall with the #S45 Black Chrome Shelby Can Am third.
