Toyota dominate Secunda

The third round of the National Rally Championship hosted by the local community of Secunda provided more excitement than anticipated. 

It was the closest fought battle for first place in a long time.  Going into the final stage, there was a mere 1.2 seconds between Leeroy Poulter and Giniel de Villiers - and this was after the two had traded places a few times throughout the rally.  Leeroy and Elvéne secured the Secunda Rally victory with a fine stage win and a victory margin of only 2.1 seconds.

Guy Botterill and Simon Vacy-Lyle took their Toyota home to victory with a combined time of 1 hour 55 minutes and 53.5 seconds and local, AC Potgieter had his dream come true with a podium finish on home ground.

This rally victory moves Leeroy and Guy to a perfect 48 points from the first three rounds of the 2016 South African Rally Championship.

The Secunda Rally TV programme will premier on SS8 on Tuesday 31 May at 20h00.  The next event in the series is the Volkswagen Port Elizabeth rally which takes place on 15 and 16 of July.
