Team 418 - Living a Dream

Going back to 1972 John and Cecile Clift started rallying in Natal before moving to Paarl, joining the Wellington Motor Club in 1973. Contesting club rallies until 1975 and navigating for amongst others Addie Vervaart, Gawie Steyn and Ted Venter. Ted was deaf and they developed their own sign language, which apparently worked quite well! Does anyone else have any recollection of the Wellington Motor Club?

Team 432 gaining momentum

If the true value of a sportman is determined by what he has contributed towards a particular sport then Andy Haigh-Smith deserves to be amongst the very best in rallying. Respect is earned, not commanded, and over more years than he cares to remember this 69 year old have set an example to all who have taken the time to notice.

Team 467 Ettiene du Toit

Back in 2006 Serge Damseaux requested a test venue for a youngster who wanted to try his hand at rallying in the ex- Dean Sanders Gp N2 Toyota Corolla RXi 1.6 and shortly afterwards I found it quite impressive to see Serge sitting in the suicide seat. Only one run before Serge explained his intentions in typical elaborate fashion by pointing his finger at me with a self explanatory “you go”.
 

All Tar - All Action

The Freightmore All Rally at the Killarney International Raceway lived up to it’s fearsome legacy of being a true test of man and machine when only 13 of the original 28 entries were classified as finishers of the 28-29 July 2017 event. This event demands good preparation, exceptional concentration and the smallest error normally results in dire consequences as the scenery at Killarney is normally concrete in construction.
