The final showdown of the Algoa Rally 50k championship for 2016 will be decided at the Heinesport Rally to be held in the Uitenhage area tomorrow and on Saturday.

It starts tomorrow evening at 20:00 at the Aldo Scribante race track and finishes at Jachtvlakte near Uitenhage on Saturday afternoon around 16:30 with the prize giving at Rangers Outdoor Game Lodge.

The 50k championship started in April with the first of 7 events which have been held in Port Elizabeth, Uitenhage and Jeffrey’s Bay, including the Volkswagen national rally and Baywest and Fountains Mall shopping centre events which have been well supported by spectators and shoppers.

VW Polo to win

Algoa Rally Club competitors compete for lucrative prizes at the end of the season which include a Volkswagen Polo Rally Car, racing suites and accessories, rally tyres supplied by ATS Automotive and Cape Fabric Engineering branded Gazebo for first place, all valued at over R100 000. Second and third prizes are R15 000 and R7 500 with cash amounts for points scored to last place sponsored by Heinesport.

The Heinesport Rally will consist of night and day stages at Aldo Scribante race circuit, Motherwell farms, Spiders Web and Jachtvlakte. These stages will be repeated over two days as the final challenge for the championship known as the 50k challenge.

The championship will be closely contested by the leading championship contenders of Johan and Jaune Viljoen, Rikus Schmidt and Sherilee Pieterse (fathers and daughters) currently in third place, Stephno and Lario Pieterse, all driving Volkswagen Polo 1600cc rally cars with 24 points separating the trio.
