Competition will be tough among the 20 rally cars expected to participate in the Algoa Rally Club 50k rally challenge, which offers a Volkswagen Polo as the winning prize.

The challenge will be held at the Fountains Mall in Jeffreys Bay on October 29th.

Local farmers have supported the rally by allowing the event to take part on farm lands in the Jeffreys Bay and Kouga area.

Action starts at Fountains Mall shopping centre, with early documentation at Global Junction coffee shop. The first car will enter the parking area at 10:00 and then move to Jubilee and Boplaas farms.

Zuurbron and Melon Spekboom will also be visited with special stages. The rally will finish at the Fountains Mall at around 16:30. The prize giving will be at E-Street restaurant, with a final stage that will include a route behind the mall.

Gabriel Jewellers will once again sponsor Tissot Watches for the winning driver and navigator.

This is the penultimate round and the organisers have arranged the special stages of tar and gravel with a mixture of rough and smooth surfaces with challenges of fast and hairpin corners.

Drivers and navigators have to work as a team with pace notes called to guide the driver over blind rises and sharp corners by calling instruction over the crash helmet intercom systems.

The ARC 50k challenge has attracted competitors from Cape Town and Bloemfontein as regular supporters who enjoy what the Eastern Cape has to offer
