Darling was Hot!

Darling was hot. No, Darling was extremely hot. No-no, Darling was bloody hot. Actually no, Darling was almost unbearably hot as temperatures soared to 41ºC at the second spectator point – turning every rally car into an uncomfortable oven!

Darling starts 2020 Western Cape Rally season

Twenty crews registered during the 27 February 2020 Entry Function at the CPMCC Rollbar, Killarney International Raceway. It is anticipated that there will be a number of late entries as cars are being prepared.

REACT Blind Navigators Rally

Few realise that Blind Navigator Rallies originated in South Africa. Born blind, Graham Pitt, was educated at the Pioneer School for the Blind and upon completion of his studies in 1947 he joined the second oldest motoring club in South Africa, the Cape Peninsula Motorcycle and Car Club, persuading the organisers of the Western Cape Regularity Rally Championship to print the Route Schedules in Braille so that he could compete with his wife Cedie driving.

Riebeek a champions podium!

Llewellyn Jones (Somerset West) and Christophé Pichon (Welgemoed) are the 2019 Western Cape Rally Champions! When the CEJ plant Hire 434 CPMCC S5 Subaru WRX STi 2.0 Turbo AWD entered Parce Fermé at the Pulpit Rock Winery in Riebeek Wes on Saturday 5 October 2019 the crew secured their fifth consecutive victory in hot, dry and dusty conditions. A left front puncture on SS2 their only minor handicap whilst completing the 55th Western Cape Rally Championship.

The heat is on!

Just one week until the 2019 Western Cape Rally Champions will be crowned. Rozario “Sonny” Bonafede and Ralph Behm won the inaugural championship in 1964 with an ex-works French Simca 1000 and both would become legends of the sport in their own right. Few would argue that Sonny Bonafede was the standard by which rallies were organised as he knew routes that maps did not know about whilst Ralph Behm would lead the sport from the top seat for almost 27 years before retiring in the year 2000.
