Team Kobra had a great practice session at the Gerotek Test Track west of Pretoria on Saturday. The focus was to check if the new Trail Gear steering pump (Lynton Swatton at Ultimate Offroad) combined with a revised steering cylinder (Haydn Rawlins & Jaco Beukes at Pro-Hydraulics) worked as planned. Besides the steering system, we also wanted to make sure that the uprated brake system performs as intended and I'm really glad to say that I got a thumbs-up in both departments form Arno, yeah baby!

Bit-by-bit we are improving Kobra and we hope to be back on the podium this coming weekend at the Maxxis SA National 4XTR event at Malonjeni Lodge in the Midvaal area. This event coincides with a 4x4 and Outdoor Expo, so there's loads to see and do for the whole family, even helicopter flights! The GPS waypoints to the event are S26° 36' 09.5" E28° 09' 41.3".

The action starts at 09H30 and carries on till late afternoon, see you there!
