Following a break of six months, the 2020 Liqui Moly INEX Legends Championship resumes at Zwartkops Raceway on 11- 12 September 2020, with six drivers all within a one-race-win margin of the lead.
The national lockdown brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic also sees the current season reduced to four rounds, effectively making Round 3 the penultimate round of the 2020 championship.
Reigning champion Jagger Robertson (1100 Points) took the Championship lead in Round 2 following a strong performance at Zwartkops Raceway and is poised to consolidate his position. Early leader Gerhard Roux and Justin Robertson are tied on 1045 points, while Richard van Heerde (1000 Points) slid down one position to fourth place.

Three races, one day
Charl Roux (990 Points) and Ian Upton (940 Points) found themselves in a host of front-end battles in the early part of 2020 already and could well be causing a few upsets to find themselves in the lead of the Championship at the end of Round 3. Johann de Venter (780 Points) has also steadily been gaining ground in Round 2 and will be eager to diminish the deficit even further at Zwartkops.
Former South African and World Champion Devin Robertson is set to make his first 2020 appearance, as well as Anton Repsold - who last competed in the penultimate round of 2019. Other drivers who will be making their first appearances for 2020 are Johan and Neels Jooste, Jordan Larsson and Seef Fourie.
Round 3 will form part of the Extreme Festival with three races scheduled for the Saturday. The provisional times are:
• 09:50 - Race 1: 10 Laps
• 12:05 - Race 2: 10 Laps
• 16:45 - Race 3: 10 Laps
Due to the agreed regulations between Motorsport South Africa and the National Government as well as the stipulations for Level 2 of the Risk-Adjusted Strategy to ease the lockdown, no spectators will be allowed at the event.
