I wish to bring to your attention a motor rally happening in the Overberg region of Klipdale on 14th March 2015. As this event is the first round of Western Cape Rally championship under the banner of Motorsport SA it might be of interest to motoring or racing enthusiasts living in the area to come out to experience exciting racing on private farm gravel roads which will be closed public traffic.
The event will be named The Klipdale Rally starting at the Klipdale CO-OP (Overberg Agri) which is situated about 20kms east of Riviersonderend at 10.00am and finishing at about 16.00pm at the same location after completing 90kms of special stage rallying.
The rally comprises of seven special stages which has various spectator vantage points for which route guides will be freely available at the Co-Op start. Rally cars are everyday vehicles that spectators can relate to such as Volkswagen, Toyota, Ford ,Subaru, BMW to name just a few. However these cars have been modified structurally and mechanically for safety,endurance and for competitive reasons. Competing rally cars with their drivers, service crews and supporters will be arriving early Saturday morning and all interested persons can have a close-up view and even a chat to see what it’s all about.
This could be an ideal opportunity for any future budding motoring enthusiast to see more and possibly join the rally fraternity.
