Twenty drivers and navigators competed in the 2019 edition of the Shell V-Power Rally, which took place on Saturday in Walvis Bay.

Wilro Dippenaar, with navigator Riaan van der Westhuizen, won the rally in a time of 59:55. Jaco Redelinghuys and his navigator Dries Booysen came second in a time of 1:01:35, while Hanre Myburgh and his navigator Tara Myburgh finishing third in 1:10:30.

The rally included five different classes - S1, S2, S3, S4 and off-roads.

Coastal driver and local favourite Allan Martin, along with his navigator Maretha Olivier, did not finish the race as they experienced mechanical problems that caused them to pull out of the race in stage three.

Although he did not finish the race, Martin clocked an impressive 5:07 and 7:59 in stages one and two, which saw him taking second place at the time. There were six drivers in total who did not finish the rally.

All pre-race activities, which included scrutinising the rally cars, took place at the Walvis Bay Express service station.

The action commenced with the first car leaving at 10:00, en route to the Rooibank reverse stage, the first of the 10-stage event, covering a distance of 124.8km.

Most of the stages (eight) were located on the outskirts of the harbour town, with a special stage in the industrial area and the final stage hosted at the Walvis Bay civic centre.

The three previous rallies of the 2019 championship were hosted in Gobabis, Tsumeb and Swakopmund.



The results per class were as follows:

S1 - Etienne van der Heever and navigator Willy van Wyk (1:10:39).

Oswaldo Mendes and navigator Kes Naidoo (1:15:09).

Pieter Greef and navigator Jean Pierre Robinson (1:18:48).

S2 - Hanre Myburgh and navigator Tara Myburgh (1:10:30).

Jan Everson and navigator Fanie Botes (1:12:37).

S3 - De Wet du Plessis and navigator Campbell Connan (1:11:41).

S4 - Wilro Dippenaar and navigator Riaan van der Westhuizen (59:55).
