Let's take you back

Rally legend Sarel van der Merwe created the original Spirit of Africa Trophy event over 12 years ago, with a view to provide the "every day" driver a chance to test their off-road abilities in a competitive environment. He's won just about every motor racing and rally title on the African continent, and is a household name in South Africa.

The International Spirit of Amarok is plotted and closely overseen by him personally.  From designing each speed stage, to setting the target time for every off-road challenge and planning the point allocation and deduction methodology, Sarel is the ultimate architect.
