REIGN­ING Pro­duc­tion Ve­hi­cle cat­e­gory cham­pi­ons Leeroy Poul­ter and Rob Howie made it two in a row with a come­from-be­hind win on the Vre­de­fort Su­per Sprint, round two of the Don­ald­son Cross Coun­try Cham­pi­onship.

Poul­ter and Howie led home An­thony Tay­lor and Den­nis Mur­phy but the Toy­ota Ga­zoo Rac­ing SA team-mates had to fight rear-guard ac­tions to hold off PMB’s Neil Wool­ridge Mo­tor­sport/Ford Per­for­mance Ranger pair of Chris Visser and Ward Huxtable. Both Toy­ota crews com­pete in the FIA Class and Poul­ter and Howie fi­nally had 40 sec­onds to spare over Tay­lor/Mur­phy, with the fi­nal podium place giv­ing for­mer South African cham­pion Visser and Huxtable the win in a hotly con­tested Class T. The event, a new en­try on the Don­ald­son cal­en­dar, was run over two 100-kilo­me­tre loops and drew mas­sive crowd sup­port. — Sup­plied.
