We have always strived to pioneer champions, and we have been key to the foundation of many tallented drivers.

The VW Challenge Racing Series has rapidly become extremely popular with the competitors, circuits and public alike, showing significant growth with each event enthusiastically staged around South Africa.  The Series for VW manufactured vehicles has evolved into the premier Regional tin top forumula in the country, with four distinct classes and up to fifty cars competing at any given time, the racing is extremely competitive and a delight to watch.  
 
Piazza Motorsport has broken into the  fun and exciting world of the VW Challenge racing series.  The Racing Team's purpose and objective is to introduce the drivers from Karting into main stream racing.  Piazza Motorsport feels that the VW Challenge is the perfect platform for this type of transition.  Piazza Motorsport will be in a sense, pioneering this concept for the first time in 2011.
