The Fountains Mall Rally – 50k Challenge took place in and around Jeffreys Bay on Saturday, with the recent rains, the river crossings catching out some of the front runners and reduced the field to 11 finishers.

Consistency and smooth driving paid off for Rufus NeethlingRUFUS and Henry Adams driving a Polo 1600 winning the event,

with Ashley Bezuidenhout and Mark Irvine Volkswagen Golf in second, followed by Denzou Ferreira and Andrew Heine Datsun SSS 1600.

The Jeffreys Bay spectators were treated to a display of car control and navigation skills around the Jeffery’s Bay parking area and the action included a drifting demonstration by Wayne Smith. The gravel stages were rough from the recent rains with rutted surfaces and wash aways. Bryan and Keith Heine, Datsun SSS, set an early lead by winning the first three stages and maintained the lead until Johan and Juane Viljoen, Volkswagen 2lt, took over the lead and then both leaders succumbed to mechanical gremlins. This paved the way for the final three overall winners.

Ian and Kate Roberts won stage 6 of the Fountains Mall tar stages and received rookie of the day award driving a Golf RA5 1400. The Final round of the 50k Challenge will be a two day event on 20 and 21 November, the Heinesport Aloe Rally, which will include Friday Night and Saturday, with annual prize giving at Rangers Outdoors with a few competitors in contention to take the championship.
