“There is already great interest in next year’s JD Rally and we are hoping for a field of at least 150 motorcycles built between 1913 and 1936, when the last of these famous races took place on public roads between the two cities,” said clerk of the course and chairman of the Classic Motorcycle Club, Pierre Cronje.

“Interest is not limited to South Africans and we expect our largest field of riders from outside SA.”

Usually the rally is run from Durban to Johannesburg, but the centenary event will be run in the opposite direction, as the original road race was staged between Johannesburg and Durban from 1913 to 1921. The races held between 1922 and 1936 went from Durban to Johannesburg.

The JD Rally will start at Carnival City, outside Johannesburg, at 7am on Thursday, March 7 and the competitive section will finish in Hillcrest, KwaZulu-Natal, at noon on Saturday, March 9, before a mass ride to the ceremonial finish in Durban. There will be overnight stops in Newcastle and Nottingham Road.
