10 August 2018 | Sports

Nico Theron Jnr and Herman Theron Jnr have emerged as the overall winners of the gruelling 10-stage Walvis Bay 4x4 Vasbyt event at Dune 7 on Saturday.

The driver and navigator duo also won the event last year.

Herman and Nico set the pace and clinched the C-class competition in their 90 Series Land Rover, equipped with front and back diff locks.

They collected maximum points (60) in eight of the ten obstacles and scored a total of 580 points.

Rico Bothma and Dolf Bothma finished second overall with 560 points in a Range Rover equipped with a 4.3 litre V8 engine.

Jaco Oberholzer and Armand Storbeck clinched the B-class competition in a pipe car equipped with a Land Cruiser chassis and V8 Lexus engine.

They shared the overall third spot with Hanjo and Kristie Horn in Black Betty, a heavily modified Willys Jeep equipped with a Lexus engine. Both teams collected 530 points.

Father and son team, Floris Steenkamp junior and senior, collected 200 points and won the A-class in their standard Willys Jeep.

There is still another two Vasbyt events remaining on the calendar. One will take place on 6 October in Windhoek. The final event is scheduled for 29 December at Dune 7 in Walvis Bay.
