TEAM SA WIN SPIRIT OF AMAROK
TEAM South Africa has won the fourth edition of the International Spirit of Amarok competition, which is the only amateur 4x4 precision driving championship with international status. Set in Mpumalanga’s unforgiving and rugged terrain from September 30 to October 5, this years‘ International Spirit of Amarok was a test for both man and machine. Team South Africa amassed a total of 4 069 points to claim the gold medals and the pair of JD Kruger and LD Erasmus walked away with the coveted Wolf Trophy as the top performing team overall, having contributed 2 132 of those points for South Africa. The runners up, Team Australia ended the competition with 3 518 points and silver medals and completing the podium positions was Team Botswana that had a total of 3 247 points. WITH no engine sound, the electric Jaguar I-PACE required a new way to warn blind, visually impaired and other vulnerable road users it is approaching at low speed. Jaguar has designed a unique Audible Vehicle Alert System (AVAS) for its first EV that meets and exceeds all forthcoming global legislation. Jaguar’s engineers have developed a sound that can be heard at speeds up to 20km/h and exceeds the 56DB(A) minimum required by forthcoming European legislation – the strictest in the world – for all new EVS from July 2019.
