The lake Umuzi National Rally will be hosted on the 28th and 29th September.
The rally promises to be full of excitement as team AC Potgieter/Nico Swartz need to win the last two rallies in order to claim the championship.
The Lake Umuzi rally is very popular with spectators and there are ample spectating spots.
The ever-popular special stage at Kosie van der Merwe’s farm produces some spectacular driving with cars racing against each other in a circuit. Two cars are pitted against each other in two different directions and they race against time. The two tracks are of equal length and cross in the middle.
The quarry at TW Stene is a photographer’s paradise. The water in the quarry produces spectacular photographs with water spraying meters into the air.
It is also the nemesis of a number of drivers as the water sometimes proves to be a car killer. The water sprays into the engine compartment and wreaks havoc with the electronics.
One stage, on a different section of Kosie’s farm, is long and dusty but produces high speeds and a lot of drifting.
The section at Lake Umuzi is also very popular as spectators don’t have to travel to the outskirts of town. The cars always have a small ramp to drive over that should be negotiated with care so as not to damage the vehicle.
The Bulletin is once again sponsoring a prize for two people to have a trip in one of the rally cars. Visit our facebook page and enter!
There is a number of local people that participate in the rally. Please diarise these dates and use the spectator guide that the Bulletin will publish in the week of the rally, to plan your spectating.
