SA STANNIC GROUP N RACING KYALAMI 1991

South African Stannic Group N race at Kyalami for Class A and B production cars. This race took place near the end of the initial manufacturer-backed era and included the quickest ever South Africa-only production Opel Kadetts and 2.7 litre BMW 325iS Evo cars. Tony Viana lead the BMW attack in the 2.7 litre BMW 325iS Evolution II, while Mike Briggs headed up the Opel attack in the 2 litre Opel Kadett 16V Superboss. As usual the battle between them saw each driver extracting the absolute maximum from themselves and their cars.
