Brandon Harcus drove the "race of his life" to win the Special Vehicle category on the Nissan Dealer 400, the opening round of the Absa Off Road Championship, which ended in Darling today.
What made the Harcus win all the more memorable is that he was out in a singleseater Motorite BAT, and had to contend with both driving and navigation duties. In a car he built himself Harcus, the son of the legendary late Arthur Harcus, surged to victory over reigning Special Vehicle champions Terence Marsh and Mike Whitehouse in the Nashua Mobile BAT, to also take the Class A honours.
The magnitude of Harcus's performance can be appreciated by the fact that he finished just over 23 minutes ahead of Marsh and Whitehouse. The champions, in turn, were 10 minutes ahead of third placed Colin Matthews and Juan Mohr in the Century Property Development BAT.
