The Tzaneen Rally is on again.
The Northern Regions Rally Committee has agreed to a new date for the Tzaneen Rally, Saturday 29 June 2013. The SAHRA Rally will move to a later date, still to be announced. The Tzaneen Organisers will use the exact same route as originally planned. The land owners have completed repairs and with the winter already set in there will be no more heavy rain to damage the roads.
The Rallyesport Committee has sponsorship in place and are working on new ideas to soften the financial hardships of rallying so far from home. There has been a big gap since the last event and plenty of pay days to save up the extra cash needed. So get your rally cars prepared for the most challenging event on the Northern Regions calendar.
Volkswagen Crew, Henk Lategan and Barry White will be competing in a Skoda on the Adriatic Rally in Italy this coming weekend. Go to here to see some more awesome pictures of them testing in Austria this past week. Here's wishing the lads the very best for the event from all of us!
