Joe De Gouveia, SAMBRA Chair for the Northern Region (Middelburg), participated in the Sasol Rally, which took place recently in the Sabie, Whiteriver and Nelspruit areas.
This was the rally's 23rd anniversary and it was once again well supported, with large crowds lining the streets and venturing out to the countryside to cheer the participants on.
Joe had a great run on the first day, but sadly had to withdraw during the second stage due to mechanical problems. The good news is that Joe will be participating in a number of other rallies during the course of 2014.
The Sasol Rally was eventually won by Leeroy Poulter and co-driver Elvéne Coetzee in their Castrol Team Toyota Yaris. Enzo Kuun and co-driver Rikus Fourie in their Enzo Kuun Racing Ford Fiesta came second.
