Josh le Roux is in East London this weekend for round five of the 2022 Investchem Formula 1600 Championship, which will take place at the historic and scenic East London Grand Prix Circuit on Saturday (6 August 2022).


It will be Josh’s second trip to East London and the RDSA driver will be looking to set the record straight. Last year’s event was a disaster after a stone went through the radiator of Josh’s F1600, causing his engine to overheat and leading to his retirement on the warm up lap of the first race. This weekend will be the Sparco ambassador’s opportunity to fully enjoy the 3.9km circuit and take on the challenging and ultra-fast Potters Pass.

“I relish every opportunity to race, but I am really looking forward to this weekend and the chance to compete at one of the oldest circuits in the country. Racing in East London is always interesting, especially considering that part of the track is a public road that gets closed off during race events. It is also the only circuit in South Africa, where you can see the ocean from the track,” expressed Josh.

Josh heads into the weekend with a seven point championship lead over Gerard Geldenhuys. At this point in the championship, every point is vital and this will be weighing heavily on Josh.

“I definitely need to do everything I can to increase my championship lead, but I also need to focus on each race and will be looking to take a race win this weekend,” he concluded.

Racing will be streamed live on the Extreme Festival YouTube Channel and Facebook Page. Spectators are welcome to attend the event and can expected an action packed day of racing.
