Regent Racing at ABSA Carnival City Event

The Regent Racing duo of Terence Marsh and Buks Carolin followed up their win at the Sun City event a few weeks back by piloting their Nissan Navara to a 6th place finish at this past weekend's 4x4 Mega World 400 in South Africa.

In 4th place in the overall ABSA off-road standings coming into the event, they likely did little to improve on that position though also likely did not fall out of contention. With three events left on the season they still have a more than legitimate shot at a year end podium spot.

Not so lucky at this event was the Barden Nissan Navara of Thomas Rundle and Juan Mohr who were a DNF with overheating problems.

As the former Nissan factory machines in South Africa these two vehicles can be winners at any event they enter but without a coordinated effort and factory technicians/funding, it will always be a uphill climb against the Toyota and Ford efforts in South Africa.
