Team 431 wins Darling Rally

Ismaeel Davids (Rondebosch) and Yusuf Ganief (Surrey Estate) made their S5 debut in Darling in 2018 but this year they returned as outright favourites for overall victory in their ex-factory ID Paving 431 CCMCC S5 (S2000) Toyota Run X 4x4. It was wet in 2018 and very dry and sandy in 2019, both favouring the 4x4 and as expected they dominated.  

2nd Darling Rally - Preview WP1

It is somehow fitting to see the second oldest motor club in South Africa organise the opening round of the Western Cape Rally Championship scheduled for Saturday 2 March 2019. Back in the 18th century some 29 farmers lived in an area named Groenkloof and the town of Darling was eventually established on the farm Langfontein in 1853. No, I am not a historian of note, you are welcome to find all this information on Wikipedia.

4/10 for Peiser

Motorsport consists of a multitude of disappointments topped by extraordinarily intense occasional highlights that somehow manages to allow the brain to forget about all the negative aspects.

Who will it be?

Fantastic to note the water levels in the Western Cape reaching the 75% full mark and the world around us turning green, not to mention the splendour of the flowers and the snow capped mountains. The Swartland is a wonderful area to visit and the seventh, and final, round of the 2018 Western Cape Rally Championship offers you the opportunity to enjoy it’s Spring colours on Saturday 6 October 2018.

The Swartland beckons!

Leading the challenge for overall honours during the CEJ Plant Hire Malmesbury Rally on Saturday 8 September 2018 will be Llewellyn Jones and Christophé Pichon in their CEJ Plant Hire 434 CPMCC S5 Subaru Impreza 4x4 Turbo 2.0. Having won the REACT Night Rally Malmesbury on debut they most certainly would enjoy winning the penultimate round of the 2018 Western Cape Rally Championship!
