Steenkamp duo crowned Vasbyt kings

02 January 2019 | Sports

Vasbyt 4x4 driver and navigator duo Floris Steenkamp Snr and Floris Steenkamp Jnr with the mean machine 'Bobjaan' emerged as the overall winners of another gruelling ten-stage Weskus 4x4 Vasbyt Club event at Dune 7 on Saturday.

Team Steenkamp managed to complete seven of the ten extremely demanding stages successfully. They amassed 520 points at the end of the day and also won the A Class category of the competition.

Nico Oberholzer Jnr and Nico Oberholzer Snr with 'Goggo' finished second in the A Class with 480 points. Ben Lange and Francois Lotter in 'Kadaffi' finished third with 460 points.

Twenty-five contestants - 20 Namibians and five South Africans - competed in four different classes at the event watched by hundreds of spectators.

The weather played along and the crowd was treated to some adrenaline-pumping performances. As is the norm, participants were required to manoeuvre their vehicles through six sand pits, two dune-climbing stages, a tyre pit and finally a mud pit.

Chris Bruyns and Fran Scholtz with 'Slakkie' shared the second overall position with Hanjo Horn and Mia Horn in 'Black Betty'. Both teams finished on 501 points.

Rico Bothma and Dolf Bothma with 'Farm Truck' finished in third position with 290 points.

Chris Bruyns and Frank Scholtz also won the B Class, followed by Jaco Oberholzer and Portra Dias with 490 points and Morne Oosthuysen and Niels Gartner in third position with 430 points.

Hanjo and Mia Horn also clinched the C Class with 510 points. The teams of Rico and Dolf Bothma and Nico Theron Jnr and Herman Theron Jnr and Francois du Plessis and Liezel du Plessis fished on 500 points.

Snyman and Bothma were awarded second place. Nico Theron Jnr and Herman Theron Jnr earned the third spot.

Izak and Annelie Maritz clinched the category contested by the South Africans with 480 points. Peet Schutte and Henlo Venter finished second with 430 points. Johantjie van Wyk and Louis Jordaan finished third on 430 points.
