The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

Jarod Black­man (right) and co-driver Mathew English had a great race in the Sug­ar­belt 450, held at Es­ton last week­end, fin­ish­ing eight over­all and third in Class B. Black­man, who jokes he is Africa’s fastest — and only — para­plegic cross-coun­try race driver, thanked his spon­sor: DCB Auto, Agri-Sales, KFC, Pro­gres­sion and Kudu Signs, for help­ing him in­spire oth­ers. Hav­ing spent years in re­hab af­ter a mo­tor­bike crash left him paral­ysed, the young racer pro­vides ex­pert help to stroke vic­tims to help them re­gain mus­cle con­trol at his state-of-the-art gym in Hil­ton.
