Volkswagen Driver Search is down to two

Motorsport reporter

The overall winner will be announced at Zwartkops a week later at the last race meeting of the year.

After four gruelling days of physical tests, psychological evaluations, media lectures and many stringent driving tests, the judges have been able to cut the original field of fourteen hopefuls down to the two finalists that will now battle it out for the 2017 Volkswagen Driver Search honours.

The test times around Zwartkops with near standard Polos were close, but in the end the names of Talha Moosajee and Raais Asmal topped the scoresheets.

Moosajee hails from an off-road racing background while Asmal has done some karting.

The two finalists will share a car, alongside 2016 Volkswagen Driver Search winner and Engen Volkswagen Cup regular Jonathan Mogotsi in the Port Elizabeth 3-Hour Endurance Race scheduled for November 18.
