LM Radio comes on board for TRACN4 National Rally

Trans African Concessions (TRAC) and the National Rally Championship (NRC) are delighted to announce LM Radio as the official media partner for the 2019 TRACN4 National Rally.
The international commercial radio station, which is based in Maputo, Mozambique, and broadcasts to South Africa, committed its support to the event last week. This will ensure that the rally gets the mileage it deserves along the entire N4 Toll Route and across South Africa and Mozambique.


The 2019 TRACN4 National Rally will be held in Bronkhorstspruit, Gauteng, on 27 and 28 September and is the sixth leg of the South African Rally Championship series. The organisers are already hard at work with preparations for the thrilling event, which will see some of the country’s top rally drivers in action. In addition, the TRACN4 Rally is the penultimate leg of the seven-leg series and competitors will go all out to make the most of the race and ensure that they enter the final stage in the best possible position.

The event will start at 14:00 on 27 September at the Willem Prinsloo Agricultural Museum, where Rally HQ and the service park will also be located. Day two will see a spectacular gravel stage, that promises some adrenaline-filled spectating.

Some of the SA Rally Championships’ Class R2N top drivers, who’ve confirmed their participation, are Guy Botterill and his navigator Simon Vacy-Lyle in their Toyota Etios R2, Chris Coertse and Greg Godrich in their Mazda and AC Potgieter with Nico Swartz as his navigator in a VW Polo. The Classic and the Open Class categories will also see some talented duos take each other on, ensuring that this rally is one to be remembered.

TRAC’s sponsorship of this exciting event is in line with our corporate social investment commitment to communities along our route. The rally will not only bring fun and entertainment to the town, but will also boost the local economy.

TRAC will also add a road safety element to the event, through our child-minding station situated at the rally’s headquarters. This facility is free and will operate from 10:00 to 15:00 on Saturday 28 September. It will be manned by TRAC’s promotional team, which has vast experience in children’s activities. There is also no entrance fee for rally spectators.

LM Radio Group CEO Chris Turner says he is stoked that the station will play such a significant role in this momentous rally, which he believes will go from strength to strength. “We are equally passionate about the communities along the N4 Toll Route and we are very proud to be part of this rally,” said Turner. “Not only will the rally liven up the quiet, quaint town of Bronkhorstspruit, but it will also have remarkable economic spinoffs for the area.”

Details of the rally will be posted on the SARallying Facebook pages in the run up to the event. It’s time to get Rally ready!
