The annual “South African National Parks Week” which will be celebrated during South Africa’s Heritage month was officially started in September 2006, and has received substantial support through donated funds from First Na- tional Bank. Reinforcing last year’s message, the theme will remain “Know Your National Parks”, and will focus on three key elements “Educate, Participate and Experience”. The Minister of Environmental Affairs and Tourism, Marthinus van Schalkwyk, will of- ficially launch the start of the South African National Parks Week 2007 on the 17 Septem- ber 2007 at Skukuza rest camp in the Kruger National Park. The Minister will be extending an invitation to all South Africans to visit national parks. Conditions for free access during SANParks Week 17-21 September 2007 Free access will be extended to all South African citizens for day visits only from 17 to 21 September 2007. To facilitate free admission, day visitors must produce a valid South African identity document while scholars will be al- lowed to enter without identification. The free access will not cover tourists on Open Safari Vehicles, tour busses or tour operator groups as these are commercial activ- ities which will not have been offered freely to the end user.

The team had a clean run for the most of the event, except for stage three where the team hit a jump at high speed damaging the little Opel Corsa's fan and leaving the car a bit hot under the bonnet in the scorching Rust te Winter sun. The familiar yellow Corsa sur- vived the ordeal and the team brought it home in fourth place in class S1. The overall winners was Callie van der Merwe and Greg Godrich in the Nissan Exa; followed 70 seconds later by Schalk Burger Jnr and Armand du Toit; Anton Wannenburg and Tania Joubert in third; while Jose de Gouveia and Elvene Coetzee finished in fourth.
