The first rally gravel stage is at Jacht Vlakte next to the industrial park in Uitenhage starting at 10h00, then on to Motherwell adjacent to Daniel Pienaar Road, and return to Daniel Pienaar School at12h00, where the rally cars will take part in a stage consisting of tar and gravel. The school grounds will be transformed into a rally stage using approach roads and around class room buildings in a display of car control and navigation in the quest to beat the clock and produce the fastest stage times.

These stages will be repeated during the day, finishing at the Ocean Basket in the late afternoon. Competitors competing for the 50k challenge have honed their skills and fine tuned rally cars to compete within seconds of each other witnessed in the last few rallies

Neels Vosloo and Kevin Futcher driver and navigator Toyota Yaris are expected to lead the pack after winning the last Algoa Steel Rally, Bryan Heine Datsun SSS, Johan Viljoen Volkswagen Golf, and Ross Bartle, Nico Smith, Rufus Neethling, driving Volkswagen Polos, are all within a chance of producing an overall win.

Class contenders who score equal points for class wins and championship contenders are the Volkswagen Citi Golfs of Rikus Schmidt, Ashley Bezuidenhout, Stephno Pieterse, Melissa Hayman, Gavin Murphy and Ruan Gerber. The Toyotas of Jan Vosloo and Chris Johnson may just spoil the Volkswagen party.

Spectators are welcome to follow the rally where spectator areas have been created, free of charge, including at Daniel Pienaar School.
