The annual Volkswagen Rally which consists of 10 stages always excites citizens of Nelson Mandela Bay.

Most of these stages consisted of mixed stages which tested both drivers’ and navigators’ skills as they had to contend with tar and gravel surfaces. On the Friday evening the participants also had to showcase their night driving ability during the two night stages.

The Daniel Pienaar THS team with driver JP Smit (17) and his navigator and teacher Martin Kleingeld again made the school proud when they managed to finish 2nd in class. This is truly a marvellous accomplishment as only 24 of the 35 cars managed to complete the rally – an indicator of the gruelling nature of this rally.

The success of any rally team depends on its sponsors and pit crew – the team would like to take this opportunity to thank the few sponsors as well as their pit crew under the leadership of Martin Kleingeld Snr and consisting of Daniel Pienaar learners.
