Tschops Sipuka is back home with the Audi South Africa Motorsport team and Terry Moss racing. On Wednesday, 27 February 2019, the 2019 drivers line-up was revealed at a press conference held at our dealership. Terry Moss Racing announced the return of Tschops Sipuka to the Audi team alongside Simon Moss.
6 years have passed since Sipuka last drove but is glad that he is back with the Audi team and says that it is a unique experience that he never planned and has brought back a lot of good memories for him. “I was privileged to previously drive alongside Simon in single seaters and back then it was mind boggling on how fast he was. We’ve come a long way since then and so to be teamed together in 2019, it will be exciting.” Says Sipuka.
2019 will bring new opportunities for Simon, following the teams success in previous years as he leads the team this year.
“When Tschops first raced for my father I was only in school, so I’ve watched his whole career unfold in front of me, but I’m excited to have him as my teammate,” said Simon Moss. “We’ll both be out there to take the championship, it belongs with the Audi team. After finishing second last year, it’s my goal to be right up there and win the championship and for us to get a 1-2 finish again. It’s a privilege to have Tschops next to me, having won the Polo Cup titles that he has and while I’ll help him where I can, I think I’m going to be learning a lot more from him.”
Audi South Africa continues their official sponsorship with Terry Moss Racing for 2019. The Duo will defend the brand and team in GTC Africa Championship for the fourth consecutive season and will compete in Audi A3 race vehicles at Dezzi Raceway in Port Shepstone this weekend (1-2 March 2019). Good Luck from Audi Centre Port Elizabeth.
