Fountains Mall Rally includes school participation


The Fountains Mall 50K Challenge rally will start in the mall parking area on Saturday morning the 12 October 2013 and this includes an interschool Supaquick Trolley race around part of the same special stage as the rally cars. This is an Algoa Rally Club initiative to introduce youngsters to Rally Motor Sport and give something back to the community which supports this annual event in Jeffery’s Bay.



Documentation and scrutineering will take place from 8h00 and the first car will enter the special stage around 10h00 in the parking area. Spectators can view the cars in action around this tar stage which will be challenging for drivers and navigators and stage times will be broadcasted after each car finishes the stage.


The rally cars will enter the service park for tyre changes and then move on to the next gravel stage at Smithtown (Kabeljouws) to Zuurbron on the Humansdorp/Hanky Rd.  The next stage will start at Hankey and is called the DKP Motor Spares stage (22 Kilometers). The cars will return to Fountains Mall for a 45 minute lunch time service and do another stage before and after lunch around the parking area then move on to repeat the morning stages with an additional gravel stage at Spekboom Lapa in Melon. This stage is worth watching from the Lapa which has a view of the cars at speed with mountainous terrain and water splashes.
