The Phakisa Raceway will host its annual Bridgestone BMW CCG Track Weekend on Friday and Saturday, with the event to feature both serious racing and social events around BMW ownership.

Topping the programme will be two rounds of the season’s Bridgestone BMW Club Racing Series, with competitors tackling practice sessions around the circuit from noon on Friday. Drivers, crews and families will descend on the pit complex on Friday night for the traditional pit braai – an annual social highlight for BMW drivers.
