NO SHORTAGE OF SPECTATOR POINTS ON HUMAN AUTO 400

There is no shortage of spectator vantage points and enthusiasts will be well catered for on the Human Auto 400, round seven of the Absa Off Road Championship, in the Free State on October 22 and 23.

There is also a bonus for motorsport fans - they won't have to travel far to catch the action. Race headquarters, the start/finish and the designated service point are all located at the Windmill Casino with a cluster of spectator points all within 15 kilometres of the complex.

These areas are all parallel to the N1 highway and offer good vantage points. The popular Stuck in the Mud facility is among this cluster of spectator points where fans can also visit an Absa activation area where there will be competitions with great prizes to be won.

There is also a spectator point (SP7) along du Plessis Avenue on the outskirts of Bloemfontein. This section of the course then takes in military areas and there is no public access on the route between SP7 and SP8 on the N8.

There are also spectator points easily accessible from the R706 and two vantage areas located between the R706 and M13. Public access to the start/finish, the designated service point and spectator points is free of charge.

Spectator guides with directions and GPS co-ordinates to spectator points will be available at race headquarters. Further information can also be obtained by visiting the www.saoffroadracing.co.za website.

The Donaldson Prologue to determine grid positions will start at 12:00 on Friday, October 22 and the race at 08:30 on Saturday, October 23.
