naamsa releases December 2021 New Vehicle Stats

 

A challenging year characterised by more waves and variants of the Coronavirus as well as several domestic socio-economic challenges has come to a close as naamsa releases December 2021 New Vehicle Stats.

naamsa says it was inconceivable that during our lifetime a virus such as COVID-19 would radically and precipitously change the world we live in and bring global economies to an upsetting slowdown. The year 2021 was a year characterised by further waves and variants of the Coronavirus as well as several domestic challenges. The South African automotive industry like many other businesses, had to learn to quickly adapt to constantly changing regulations at the different alert levels. We had to embrace remote and flexible working environments and we had to find new ways to operate in a dynamical digital economy. Many of our companies had to reimagine and reinvent themselves to remain relevant and as a result, they managed to remain resilient in recouping some of the losses in new vehicle sales, vehicle exports and vehicle production compared to the severely COVID-19 affected 2020 levels.

F1’s 1997 world champion to race in the US?

By Graham Duxbury @TheRealDux

 
 
 

At age 51, the 1997 F1 world champion Jacques Villeneuve is gearing up to once again enter a high-profile international racing event. He intends to compete in the upcoming Daytona 500 NASCAR race scheduled for 20 February 2022. He will make a final decision this week following a test at the legendary Speedway driving a Ford Mustang proudly carrying his (and his late-father Gilles’) famous number 27.

Villeneuve, who is an FIA Hall of Fame inductee, left F1 mid-way through the 2006 season. Since then, he been generally unsuccessful in sportscar, GT, NASCAR, rallycross, Brazilian stock car, Porsche Cup, Formula-e and other forms of racing in which he has competed. His last major international victory came in 2008 when he won the 1000km sportscar race at Spa in Belgium driving for Peugeot.

That said, in 2021 he competed in the Whelen Euro Series, a NASCAR-sanctioned European-domiciled regional series using earlier-generation NASCAR-style stock cars limited to 400 horsepower. Villeneuve achieved two victories in the final round in Spain and finished ninth in the overall points standings.

The Whelen champion is Dutch driver Loris Hezemans who also won the title in 2019. Loris is the son of Toine Hezemans, the well-known touring car and prototype racer of the late sixties and early seventies.
