This is a “warm up” race in South Africa before the larger National events kick off in March. Think of it as a “regional” event with a decidedly lower key atmosphere.
Still the race brought out some big guns, particularly on the Nissan side of things. Terence Marsh and the Red Line Racing team brought two of their top flight Navara’s out to race while other older Nissan Frontiers and even some old Datsuns were entered as well.
The Red Line Navaras finished 1 and 2 in their class, not much of a surprise given there were only three in their class but more importantly out of 43+ entries of all kinds finished 2nd and 15th overall. Oh, and the old green Datsun here also won its class—please note it leaf sprung front and rear ends…what a joy to race that thing!!
