DONALDSON CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIP SAVES ON CHAMPAGNE
Milk is the preferred victory lane drink at the famous Indianapolis 500, but competitors in the Donaldson Cross Country championship are made of sterner stuff.
Crews who finish on the podium in the Production and Special Vehicle categories continue to spray the traditional bubbly – with a little help from the Van Loveren Winery in the Western Cape. At each of the eight events that make up the national series the winery supplies the South African National Off Road Association (SANORA) with Four Cousins champagne at a preferential rate.
“The gesture by the winery is a significant cost saver and is greatly appreciated,” said SANORA chief executive officer Richard Schilling.
“They might like their milk at Indianapolis but cross country racers are a rugged bunch and we will stick to the traditional champagne.”
The champagne will flow for the first time next season at the new RFS 450 event in Harrismith on February 28 and March 1.
