A PIECE OF PASSION ….WRITTEN BY REGHARD ROETS

INTRO BY LEON BOTHA In the world of motorsport you do not easily find much more than criticism, no matter on what level you participate or think your wisdom fits in. After reading this piece written from Reghard Roets’ heart – from the same room in which he stores his love for motorsport and people, […]

THE DAKAR 2018 – AS EXPECTED, PREDICTED AND GUESSED BY LEON BOTHA

The toughest rally adventure in the world. An adventure so many people dream about and never do – simply because they do not really aspire to anything more than watching a Sevens Rugby game. There is one program on TV that made me think of many things, even in my life – and goodness knows […]

A-TEAM “I like it when ….

“I like it when a plan comes together” the famous phrase used by “Hannibal Smith” in the A-team series.  I can repeat these words today after speaking to one of the organisers of the Secunda Rally that will take place 19-20 May 2017. A thousand and twenty seven seven-hundred and one hundred as our beloved […]

KLIPDALE RALLY

KLIPDALE RALLY Fresh from a win in Gauteng Jacques and I were quite confident that we had a chance to pull off two wins in two weekends. Confident but rally-wise, not absolutely sure. Unlike on the Hall Speed Rally we sported brand new helmets and goodness knows that was a relief as during the first […]

2017 HALLSPEED RALLY

2017 HALLSPEED RALLY I have been looking forward to this “come-back” for a long time, despite making a promise many years ago, not ever, never, ever to navigate for Jacques – that’s my son, again, after he almost wiped us both out during a Sasol Rally. Late last year Jacques acquired one of the most potent […]

THE WORLD’S BIGGEST TV SHOW HAS JUST BEGUN

2017 DAKAR RALLY Stage 8 After I wrote my Dakar report before the start of the event I decided rather not to publish it – for the simple reason that I did not predict the outcome in an acceptable, South African way. There was no reason for my predictions other than being based on experience, […]

MATRIEK AFSKEID EN SO AAN…

Dalk ‘n finale vaarwel? Ek is tans (vir ‘n ruk al) besig om ‘n boek te skryf met die titel: “I killed my child!” Dit klink natuurlik soos iets wat elke skoolvakansie in die verbeelding van baie ouers afspeel, maar hierdie titel is ongelukkig in baie gevalle die reine waarheid. Dit gaan oor jongmense wat […]

THE RALLY OF 2016

The 25th Sasol Rally will without a doubt be the rally of the year. From an organiser’s point of view I have always envied the Sasol for the area – the panoramic scenery – the roads and of course the options to use. Pretoria Motor Club organised an almost similar rally with Total as sponsor […]

POLOKWANE RALLY AND ONE OR TWO OTHER MATTERS

HOW BAD IS BAD REALLY?

The yet to be officially confirmed announcement by Volkswagen of their “withdrawal from all motorsport” in official capacity in South Africa this week, sent shock waves through the sport and for a moment or three all seemed lost. The question however is, “How bad is bad really” Let us assume that sanity and good marketing […]
