Louwrens Mahoney (KTM) and Brian Baragwanath (Yamaha) took their second victory of the National Off-road Championship at the Windsorton 400 in the Northern Cape.

Mahoney started the race from pole position, while team mate Ross Branch chased him to finish second – 1m16 seconds behind after the 360km race.

Altus de Wet (Husqvarna) fought a constant battle with the dust as he started way down the field due to not finishing the season-opener. He clawed his way back into the results to finish eighth overall and second behind KTM’s Tyron Miller in OR2.


Quad winner Baragwanath’s competition fell by the wayside as both Jurie Meyer (Yamaha) and Jaco Moller (Yamaha) experienced mechanical problems and  could not finish. Baragwanath beat David Hollis (Yamaha) by nearly 15 minutes while Hannes Saaijman (Yamaha) eventually finished third, a fraction of a second behind Hollis.

There were new female winners in the two categories with Liezel Barnard (Can-Am) winning on four wheels – she beat Chardri Monk (Yamaha) by just under a minute – while Toni Jardine (KTM) won in the motorcycle section where Nanda Swiegers (Yamaha) was second and Taye Perry (KTM) third. Barnard was the winner of the Combined Ladies Championship followed by Monk, Jardine, Swiegers and Perry.

While the female quad racer, Wilmarie Moller (Honda), claimed her second High School Class victory – Ramon Lopez (Honda) finished less than two minutes behind her in second place.

Eduan Bester (Yamaha) claimed his first victory of the season in the High School motorcycle category. The competition was again fierce with just over three minutes separating the podium finishers. Alastair Drennan (KTM) was second with Brendon Fourie (Kawasaki) rounding off the podium.
