SAES

SAES Structure

In 2021 SAES acquired the successful South African Endurance series from its founder Roger Pearce. The intention of SAES is to grow the sport and take it to a next level.

SAES (Southern African Endurance Series) is the first black Motorsport Promoter in South African, registered with MSA (Motorsport South Africa)

In 2022 SAES ran two series in South Africa. Firstly, the SA GT Championship. SA GT Racing is a National GT3 championship that was founded in 2021. During the 2021 year, the GT3 series ran a successful season and obtained national status from MSA. In 2022, SA GT crowned it first National GT3 Champion, Silvio Scribante.

Secondly SAES runs the SAE class, previously known as the South African Endurance series. The SAE class will had 5 rounds in 2022 with multi class champions

It’s the intention of SAES to extend its number of series and expand its business to other African countries. Beside being a promoter, SAES invests heavily in the endorsement of South African racing talent under the banner of Africa Race Together Foundation, ART.
