Duncan Vos and Nissan Win Toyota Dealer 400!

Kind of amusing at this point that year after year a Nissan vehicle keeps winning the Toyota Dealer 400 in South Africa.

Already the ABSA season champion, Duncan Vos and co-driver Ralph Pitchford won yet again this weekend by an oh-so-slim margin of 24 seconds over the Toyota Hilux of Hein Lategan with another Nissan Navara (Frontier) in third and driven by Ivar Tollefsen.

This was Vos's fifth ABSA victory in '09 and he is truly the class of South Africa offroad racing. I am going to put in an inquiry with Glyn Hall (Nissan Motorsports South Africa manager) to see if Duncan is going to run in the Dakar this year as Tollefsen and numerous other S.A. built and maintained Navaras and drivers are already planning on doing so. Will update here when I find out.
