Ticket prices are R47 500 and a supercar is mandatory for entry. Cars so far confirmed include a Ferrari Scaglietti 612, two McLaren MP4-12Cs, a special-edition Nissan GT-R, an Aston Martin Vanquish, a Mercedes-Benz SLS, a Lamborghini Aventador, a Ford Shelby GT500 and a Porsche 911 Turbo.

For those who want to join the Rogue Rally, sms "rogue", your name and the car you would like to enter to 32026, to receive the invitation and entry form.

The rally, which will run from June 16-22 2013, will have special stages (including track days), high-speed runs on Hakskeenpan and a closed-road mountain stage.
