Moroka Swallows Football Club and TOTAL have sponsored a top class driver and car in the TOTAL rally of South Africa.
The rally counts towards the African rally championship and is one of the most prestigious events on the SA's motor racing calendar.
Richard Bem, the current Western Province rally champion will be driving one of only two Mitsubishi EVO Lancer vehicles in the country. It is a two litre turbo charged 4 wheel drive,
The fully branded racer sporting the famous Swallows emblem should be running close to front of the pack which makes the fact that the famous saying "Don't follow me follow the Birds" is displayed on the rear of the car, all the more appropriate.
The "Bird" will be closely watched and sent on her way by some of the swallows players who hope to have a big win of their own in this weekend's ABSA cup semi final.
Swallows officials are saying they want to make it a double this weekend and wish the "Bird" and the "Birds" well.
