At the Cape Town RX event Giniel and a couple others did some laps around the track and man, those Hiluxes sound great! The Navaras as well!

Not often you see a bakkie powerslide all 4 wheels around a bend  :drif:

We asked Giniel what happened with the RWD Hilux and he said it was a budget thing. And that basically the 4WD bakkie is good, fast and pretty much sorted. And I think it's got more power this year.

Holding thumbs for him, but those Peugeot's are very quick..that is if they can keep all 4 wheels on the ground.

And the new Mini buggy looks nice!
