Audi, the Progressive Partner to the Proteas, has unveiled the Audi Q5 Fast Track, a new development initiative aimed at unearthing the next crop of great South African fast bowlers. The initiative will be run in conjunction with Cricket South Africa (CSA) and will be the first to utilise state-of-the-art technology to assess and identify previously untapped talent from disadvantaged areas. The programme will be powered by a fleet of Audi Q5s which will be taking Audi’s ‘Bowling Lab’ technology to locations around South Africa over the coming month. As Progressive Partner to the Proteas, Audi developed the ‘Bowling Lab’, a set-up which utilises state of the art PitchVision technology to instantly analyse a bowler’s performance by comparing pace, line, length, deviation and bounce to that of a current Proteas bowler. It is this technology which will assist the Audi Q5 Fast Track team in their aim of unearthing hidden bowling gems. The team tasked with identifying and unlocking the potential of talented young bowlers will be made up of some of the most prominent individuals in South African development cricket. They will be led by ex-Protea speedster and development guru Mfuneko Ngam. Ngam will be joined by CSA appointed coaching experts including former Proteas bowler Victor Mpitsang. The Audi Q5 Fast Track will be visiting locations across Gauteng, Limpopo, Kwa-Zulu Natal, Eastern Cape and Western Cape over a one-month period with the first event taking place at Kagiso Cricket Club on 23 September 2017.
