Coetzee confirmed as 2023 VW Challenge B champion

Ethan Coetzee has been confirmed as PABAR Volkswagen Challenge Class B champion for 2023.

While another driver was initially declared champion, a series of MSA hearings made that provisional, before an MSA National Court of Appeal this week declared Coetzee champion.

Coetzee’s rival’s car was found to have illicit chassis modifications in the Aldo Scribante round in the mid-season. The competitor was excluded from the results of the day and protested the findings according to his rights. That led to a series of hearings that culminated in this week’s findings.

JRT Racing teenager Ethan Coetzee is therefore confirmed 2023 PABAR VW Challenge Class B champion. He now officially joins Class A champion Rory Atkinson, and Overall and Class C champion Yotti Nousias. The 2024 PABAR VW Challenge championship has already commenced.
