Caledon Rally - Eric Joseph

Regional Entries ready for Overberg Grand Prix

Two hundred and twenty years ago (1797) travelling 100km East from Cape Town would have seen you arrive at the Bad agter de Berg in a village known as Swartberg. Now named after the first British governor of the Cape (the 2nd Earl of Caledon, Du Pre Alexander) the capitol of the Overberg remains well known for it’s Mediterranean climate and mineral-rich hot springs.

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”.
