WBMK Gymkhana 99

Saturday, August 16, 2014
8th Lions Vredendal, Matzikama, West Coast

At the time of writing 50 provisional entries were on record for the 8th Lions Vredendal Gymkhana. A magnificent entry in tough times. The Coathangers had their stategy meeting tonight and there are fourteen entries confirmed for Mykonos - with more good news soon to be announced!

Road between Clanwilliam and Citrusdal have bad potholes, please drive carefully! Ten stop-go roadworks so please be patient and be prepared to wait.

Few would argue that this is one of the most popular events on the annual calender and the 8th Lions Vredendal Gymkhana promises to be another stunning event in the Matzikama district. Nico van Zyl and his team have been hard at work behind the scenes and now the time has come. An advanced thank you to Vredendal Toyota, Koelbly (Coca Cola), Matzikama Municipality, Maskam Hotel and EDK Besigheidsmasjiene for their support.

With the AHI Racing Mini trio set to receive LS treatment their first venture to Vredendal will undoubtedlay attract much attention. Rafique Firfirey have basically owned class B this season in his AHI Racing VW Golf GTi but as the defending Vredendal champions, Günther and Louise Appelgryn, will be determined to take the Spiderman VW Golf back into the winners circle.

Izak van Zyl Jnr is somewhat undecided about his focus for 2014 as he is currently third on points with normally dominant Dynotech class G VW Golf GTi 2.0 Turbo and Vredendal is a happy hunting ground for this combination, but he is having so much fun in the 4.0 V8 Lexus powered Toyota Corolla that this could well become his regular steed. Do not underestimate the potential of this car as he may possibly prove to be quicker in the rwd at Vredendal.

Leading on points is that indecently quick FM Civils Mazda Rustler LDV 2.0 16v of Fanie du Toit and he plans on remaining top of the log. Brent Laurings quietly snuck into second place with the 1984 Opel Kadett GTE 2.0 to prove that one does not always require a super modern machine to win events. Add Nashrené Schloss to the scene and the fight at the front of the pack will be intense.

Not an event to miss as everyone would like to arrive at Mykonos in September with some form of reserve in hand.



Returning to the Matzikama district for the 8th Lions Vredendal Gymkhana will see the best Witzenberg Motorklub drivers and navigators presently competing in the sport go head to head for overall honours on Saturday 16 August 2014. Günther and Louise Appelgryn have missed two events in 2014 but will be making a concerted effort to defend their 2013 Vredendal victory in the always...

Not even twelve stop and go roadwork delays discouraged gymkhana enthusiasts from turning the Vredendal Toyota supported 8th Lions Vredendal Gymkhana into a resounding success. The annual Matzikama event attracted a stunning 55 team entry and on course it would produce the tightest result to date in the 99 event history of the Witzenberg Motorklub Gymkhana Championship. The weather was great,...
