This past weekend I travelled up to Oranjemund on the border of Namibia to take part in the annual Desert 300 rally. It's a 300km off-road through the desert around the town. I haven't raced in more than eight years, and the two races before that most would laugh at. I was joined by my brother, who is a seasoned racer, along with my father and mother.
It turned out to be a great weekend for the Ellis family. My brother took first in the Open Class and first overall, I suprisesed us all including myself with a third in Open Class and my father, accompanied by my mother as co-driver, took first in the Sand Master Class and second overall amongst the cars.
