Motorsport SA held their Northern Regions Regional Awards on Friday, December 1, at Usambara Lodge in Muldersdrift.
Champions of the following disciplines were crowned, Rally, Cross Country Cars, 4X4 X-Track, Drag Racing, Oval Racing, Drifting and Spinning.
A Few provincial colours were also awarded with AC Potgieter and Willem Louw the only two to receive honorary colours in the Rally section. What makes this achievement so more special as that no one received honourary colours (in Rally) for a number of years.
AC received his colours for special achievement as a rally driver.
AC was crowned regional champion 2 years running and finished in the top three of the nationals for the last two years as well.
William Louw received his honourary colours for outstanding work in administration. William did excellent work in ensuring that the various rallies took place and everything ran smoothly.
When asked about the shift in Rally classes in particular the shift back to the S16 class from the S2000 class, AC had the following to say, “It was a good thing to shift back to S16 class, the rally is now far more competitive with no dominance from the factory sponsored cars. It is also now easier for anybody to enter a rally.”
The Mpumalanga Highveld have a number of rally drivers currently competing in the various rallies. We even have our own female driver, Lune. The Secunda rally is always a favourite with spectators and competitors alike.
Keep reading The Bulletin for news on our teams and the rallies. And of course, for news about the next Secunda rally.
AC is quite clear about his plans for next year: Win the Nationals!
