The South African Motorsport fraternity has suffered the lack of a Volkswagen Motorsport truck which was concerned in a deadly accident over the weekend outdoors of Colesberg. The truck was returning to Johannesburg with the Volkswagen Golf 8 GTI racing automobiles as cargo when it was apparently concerned in a head-on collision.
The aim-built GTI fashions had been in motion at Spherical 3 of the GTC collection at Aldo Scribante Raceway with Daniel Rowe and Jonathan Mogotsi behind the wheel all through the weekend of racing. The fashions aboard the truck had been engulfed in flames after the collision and had been presumably destroyed within the wreckage.
Little info has been offered to the motoring press at this level however an official Volkswagen Motorsport South Africa assertion reads: “As Volkswagen Motorsport we are able to verify that there was a deadly car accident outdoors of Colesberg involving our truck carrying the Volkswagen Golf 8 GTI racing automobiles.” Extra particulars will likely be printed as soon as they’re made out there.
We at CAR Journal wish to convey our heartfelt condolences to the lack of life that has been suffered by the Volkswagen Motorsport group.
