Datsun Parade

Acknowledging 90 years is quite a challenge. Having his first racing car present was indeed very moving and to many viewing the 81 year BMW was an unexpected bonus.

Ewold van Bergen will however always remain a Datsun / Nissan legend. He drove his Datsun 310 at Monte Carlo before most of the current motorsport supporters were even born and that was after he had become the 1st South African rally drivers champion in 1960!

The Van Bergen legend

The oldest surviving Springbok in motorsport, Ewold van Bergen, and the only female rally Springbok, Minota-Ann van Bergen, accepted an invitation by the Western Province Motor Club to attend the sixth round of the regional championship Wingfield Motors Power Series at the Killarney International raceway on Saturday 10 August 2019.

Comeback victory for Leon Engelbrecht

Leon Engelbrecht and Quinton Phillipson had to dig very deep for victory in the L&M Automotive Performance VW Golf MkII GTi 2.0 16v Turbo having broken a driveshaft on the opening run and then having to be both cautious and aggressive o the remaining three. But then, this is Lightning Leon and a challenge is why he competes.

Jones and Pichon make it three

Tarmac Rally Preview

It might be the shortest special stage distance of the 2019 Western Cape Rally Championship but the seven stages of the CPMCC Tarmac Rally will undoubtedly test each team when the fourth round of the championship takes place at the WPMC Killarney International Raceway on Saturday 13 July 2019.
