IT is all sys­tems go for the first rally in SA to pit some 40 driv­ers af­fil­i­ated to ei­ther Mo­tor­sport South Africa (MSA) or the World of Mo­tor­sport ZA (Womza) against each other in a trib­ute rally at Dal­ton on Oc­to­ber 27.

Or­gan­iser Dean Redel­inghuys told Wheels the race is a trib­ute to KZN rally racer and all round gen­tle­man Zane Rencken, who died ear­lier this year in a work-re­lated ac­ci­dent.

The event will live stream ac­tion from the eight stage to a screen in the club house — a first for SA. Fans will also be able to buy white-knuckle rides in two rally cars over a short stage to raise funds for Reach for a Dream as well as the New­ton School Rally Car Pro­ject.

Redel­inghuys said the rally en­tails eight “in­vig­o­rat­ing stages” over some 100 km through sugar cane fields and plan­ta­tions, thanks to the pa­tron­age of the lo­cal Dal­ton farm­ers.

The main ser­vice park will be ac­com­mo­dated by the Dal­ton Farm­ers’ Club, pro­vid­ing a great venue with all the ameni­ties and KZN’s best farm fare.

“This is the best event for rally lovers — and novices to the sport — to ex­pe­ri­ence first hand why all mo­tor­sport fans agree, rally rac­ing of­fers the most thrills per minute,” said Redel­inghuys.
