The Engen Volkswagen Cup finale at Zwartkops Raceway on Saturday, 26/11/2016 provided some nail-biting action that saw the championship go down to the wire. The eventual winner and new Engen Volkswagen Cup Champion is Turn 1 Insurance Brokers very own Christopher Shorter.
Christopher had this to say; “We did it! 2016 NATIONAL POLO CUP CHAMPION! I really still cannot believe it, but it’s started to sink in.”
A season that saw Christopher experience a few ups and downs and as you would expect, multiple race winners, throughout the season meant that the championship would inevitably go down to the last race, which it did. Christopher clinched the title in the final race by 1 point from a fiercely competitive and talented field of drivers.
Christopher Shorter is also the son of an immensely proud Craig Shorter, a Director here at Turn 1 Insurance Brokers. As expected, Christopher Shorter was ecstatic with his achievement and he was quick to thank all those involved for helping across the line; “A huge thank you to my team Signature Motorsport, who also took a clean sweep in the championship, my sponsors, my team mates who pushed me the entire year and of course my family.” Christopher said.
There are some exciting prospects that lay ahead for Christopher and his racing career, all will be revealed shortly, however 1 thing is certain and that is Turn 1 Insurance Brokers will continue to support Christopher Shorter.
