Almost sounds like an offer there Rog!
I think if we can afford it, I'd like to go - race or just report. But, it would be nice to race for a change.

Pretoria used to be my home town (city) too. My mom still lives there, so accomodation would be nothing for me too.....that is if she'll let me stay there again - lol

Default 1/10th Off Road in South Africa

Good morning gents,
Yes, the Worlds will be held in Pretoria, the event will be held at TRAP on a purpose built track, check out www.trap.co.za, the track is still under construction, but we race 1/8th off road and all the on road classes there.
The 1/5th on road worlds will also be held there a week before the Off road.

Hey Elvis,

I use to race with a chap called Pieter Janse Van Vuuren from Pietersburg... I believe he still races. Do you know perhaps how he has done?

Nolan
