Robyn Kruger with her VW Scirocco
Female drivers are now found in one-make series for any number of different cars, around the world. South America has quite a large number, and one-make series in Asia and India are on the increase, so this post will expand in future. Drivers from outside Europe are also moving over to compete there.
Elna Croeser – normally races a VW Golf or Polo in South Africa. She has been involved in one-make series for Volkswagens for at least five years. She won her class in the Goldwagen Challenge in 2008, and has challenged for race wins in the Golf since, on many occasions. Previously, she raced single-seaters in Formula GTi. She took part in the African 6 Hours in 2014, not in a VW for once. Her car was a Shelby Can-Am, and she and her two team-mates were fourth. For the rest of the year, she raced a Polo in the Comsol VW Challenge. She continued to race the Polo in 2015. At the end of the year, she took part in the African 9 Hour endurance race.
Robyn Kruger - South African driver who usually races in Volkswagen one-make series. She began karting at five, and moved into circuit racing at fifteen, in the Super Hatch series. She won her class championship in the category in 2006 and 2007. The following year, she moved into the Engen Volkswagen Cup, and was fifteenth overall. In 2009, driving a Polo, she improved her finishing position to tenth, then ninth in 2011. In 2012, she was eleventh again, but achieved her first podium position, at Zwartkops. In 2013, her career went international. She travelled to Buddh in India for a guest appearance in the VW Polo R Cup, in which she was second. She was also selected for the FIA Women in Motorsport Commission’s VW Scirocco-R Shootout, and got to the final stage, finishing fourth overall. Her brother, Jeffrey Kruger, also races, and they sometimes compete directly against each other. In 2014, she raced less than previously, taking part in club Superhatch racing in the Polo. She scored at least one second place.
