Kwanda stuns GT3 racing

The South African was already a local champion but his recent debut in the GT3 class sunned the racing world with the 22 year old getting two podiums.

Mzansi racing sensation, Kwanda Mokoena has caused a stir in the international racing world with 2 podium results in his debut race in the GT3 Racing Series. According to Motorsport Media, Kwanda Mokoena who races for Haupt Mercedes-AMG GT3, scored a double podium on debut at the fourth round of the European GT Winter Series in Valencia over the past weekend.

According to the Motorsport Media, the weekend started on the front for Kwanda, who put his AMG GT3 third on the grid for the opening race before delivering an exceptional debut third. While Haupt teammate Finn Wiebelhaus cleared off for the win, Mokoena was left to do race-long battle for the final podium spot under pressure from Michael Kapfinger’s Porsche 911, which the young South African duly held off to the flag.  

“That was a bit of a tricky race!” Kwanda beamed as he celebrated a stunning debut podium. “I felt like we had the pace, we just have a little fine tuning to do with the car, but overall I have to be super-happy. A podium in our first race, I couldn’t ask for more!”. “The perfect end to an almost perfect weekend!” Kwanda concluded. “Huge thanks to my incredible Haupt Mercedes team for a dream debut and to my family and all my supporters who have helped make this happen!”
