Team Ultimate 4x4 (Barrie Drenth and Brendon Gird) managed to snatch a third position again at the Maxxis SA National 4XTR event near Rustenburg on Saturday! They had a consistent day and are now very well placed in the Championship due to their consistency.

The fairy tale start to the season for Team Kobra (Arno Drenth and Koos Zietsman) turned into a fat old toad on Saturday! At one point it felt like nothing turned out the way we planned it, Kobra was biting back and we ended up in a lowly 10th position, obviously lots of hard work ahead for us! We managed to pinpoint a number of shortcomings and the list of improvements before the Wesvaal event near Fochville on 11 April is quite comprehensive, watch this space...

You can check out some great action pictures of both teams here, thanks to my son Jimmy Stonehouse for the pictures. We also compiled a really exciting video of Team Kobra hissing and spitting and biting back, thanks to my darling wife Sanette for the video footage.
