Team Serpent South Africa scored an important victory for the S400 as the three man Serpent squad of Dave Wiseman, Mike Wiseman and Tony D’ Oliviera took overall victory in the Nosram Six Series, a endurance series that takes in three 6 hour races run over a two month period.
The Nosram Six Series restricts each team to a single touring chassis running a Nosram 17×2 handout motor with compulsory driver changes every ten minutes.
The first event at the tight Umhlanga Gateway Raceway, saw a tight fight right to the end, with the S400 car of Mike, Dave and Tony Dâ€™Oliviera, taking the win by just one lap, approx 16 seconds, after 6 hours of racing.
The 2nd event took place at another tight track at Camperdown. Unfortunately this event had to be cut short at the midway point when the heavens opened up over the track.
The final round was held at the Southway track in Durban where three S400 cars were running.
Again a tight struggle until the final two hours when the Wiseman/D’Oliviera team moved clear to take the win and with it secured overall series victory. Second in the final went to another S400 in the hands of Shaun & Mike White, driving with Neil Robinson while in the overall standings Serpent’s EP touring car took a 1-2 with Brandon May, Kim Hein and Shane Sudbury taking their example to 2nd in the final standings.
After 18 odd hours of racing this result shows not not just the pace of the S400 but also but outstanding reliability of the car.
