History of Gymkhana

Having achieved virtually everything possible in his Ford Escort 1600 Sport Johann Zulch announced his retirement from rallying at the end of the 1997 WP season. A lack of funding to progress to a more modern and competitive vehicle one of the biggest motivaters but fortunately he remained active in his assistance with the promotion of the sport and organising of rallies under the Witzenberg Motorklub banner. Facing a similar dilemma as navigator “retirement”lasted until approached by a very determined David Louw. Unfortunately our season came to a very abrupt end in August 1998.
