RISE OF THE ROOKIES

With a clear mandate to dominate the field at the 2024 Dakar Rally, held in Saudi Arabia since 2020, the Toyota Gazoo Racing team rose to the challenge with Dakar-stalwart Giniel de Villiers and a duo of rookie drivers setting the pace.

UNBREAKABLE GRIT

In rally racing, few experiences are as exhilarating and eye-opening as witnessing the action live. Last month, we were invited to immerse ourselves in the heart-pounding world of rally racing during the NTT Tzaneen Rally. This pivotal event encompassed Rounds 5 and 6 of the 2023 South African National Rally Championship. Nestled against the stunning backdrop of Tzaneen in the Limpopo province, this rally was a test of skill and determination.

CHASING DUST AND DREAMS

Chasing dust and dreams became the theme for the last June weekend when Africa hosted two major rally events. We joined the Toyota Gazoo Racing South Africa team at the TGRSA 1000 Kalahari Desert Race held again for the first time since 2018 in Jwaneng, Botswana.

FERRARI TRIUMPHS IN CENTENARY 24 HOURS OF LE MANS

KINGS OF THE DESERT

The Toyota Hilux has earned its crown as the ruler of the desert, after the awe-inspiring display of might by Toyota Gazoo Racing and Toyota Overdrive teams at the 2023 Dakar Rally in the scorching sands of Saudi Arabia. Long live the King of the Desert, the Toyota Hilux!

FARCIAL FERRARI FAILURES FAVOUR VERSTAPPEN

A busy month of July, with four scintillating Grands Prix, featuring a series of farcical Ferrari failures, has afforded Max Verstappen and Red Bull a distinct advantage, while the Mercedes Star continues its ascent. Climb into the cockpit to experience all this season has to offer...

Double Redemption

While reports are mounting on South Africa staging an F1 Grand Prix again, the momentum in the current championship chase has swung firmly in favour of Max Verstappen and Red Bull. Winning in Baku redeemed the Dutchman’s heartbreak of last year, and his first victory in Canada made up for the disappointment he suffered there in 2019.

TRACK POSITION

Inopportune tyre graining, unexpected reliability problems, and terrible strategy calls – those are the factors leading to frustration at Ferrari, with Charles Leclerc losing the championship lead with a third of the season run. Meanwhile, with three race wins on the trot, resurgent Red Bull and defending champ Max Verstappen now have track position.

LEISURE DRIVE

HEADING NORTH

We couldn’t think of a better way to spend a recent special celebration than with a little Zululand “surf n turf” – scuba diving and beach fun at the beautiful Thonga Beach Lodge, before heading inland for some time in the bush and unbeatable hospitality at Mkuze’s Ghost Mountain Inn.
