Randburg, South Africa. Hennie Groenewald, the driver of the #08 Sasol GTC racing car has stepped down from the team as a result of starting a new business venture in Cape Town after relocating to the Western Cape late last year.
Reflecting on his seven year stint with Sasol, Groenewald said: “It has been an honour and a privilege to be associated with Sasol over the past seven racing seasons, culminating in our 2015 Production Car Championship.
Being part of the Sasol racing team was more than just being a racing driver for Sasol, as I got to meet amazing people and staff at all levels of the organization as well as taking part in various activations at Sasol’s head office and forecourts throughout the country”.
Groenewald took his first victory under the Sasol brand at Port Elizabeth in 2010 and continued to deliver race-winning performances throughout his production car career, culminating in the 2015 championship.
The Sasol GTC Racing Team will announce their second driver and team structure ahead of the first round of the Sasol GTC Championship on 25th March.
