Fountains Mall Rally 2013


Plenty of action can be expected at Fountains Mall on the 12 October 2013 when the Algoa Rally 50k motor vehicle rally challenge will take place. The organisers are expecting about 25 entries of drivers and navigators competing for the R 50 000.00 end of the year prize which is on offer.


The rally known as the Fountains Mall Rally 50k challenge is a prestigious event held on an annual basis in Jeffery’s Bay and what makes this event special for the competitors is the support from business and public from the area who support the event by assisting the organisers and contributing towards the rally. This was rewarded with an appearance of the Volkswagen National Rally event held in Jeffery’s Bay that was televised, promoting business and tourism that was well received.

Local business Gabriel Jewellers sponsors watches for the winning team of driver and navigator which makes this event worth pushing rally to the limits. Last year the rally was won by Neels Vosloo driving a Nissan Sentra and Jan Vosloo as navigator from Jeffreys Bay. What was special about this win was that a few years before Neels was a spectator at Fountains Mall and decided to get involved and within a short period of time gained rally experience competing in rallies around Port Elizabeth and went on the win the 2012 Fountains Mall Rally and hopes to retain the title this year.

Spectators can expect an action packed day with at least 3 stages and servicing of vehicles in the car park area of Fountains Mall. The standard of rallying has improved since last year with many new cars which include VW Polos, Nissans, Toyotas and the ever faithful Golfs and classic Fords.

Supporting events will be included at Fountains Mall to keep spectators entertained between rally stages that will make this an ideal family outing which is free. Many of the competitors have National experience and smoking tyres and precision driving can be expected. The stage at the mall will have a live timing system with a PA system which will announce the stage times as the vehicles exit.
