On Sunday, 23 October 2016, eight motoring journalists took part in the Volkswagen Media Challenge powered by the South African Guild of Motoring Journalists, backed by Cell-C along with contingency sponsors Engen, Dunlop, Sapphire Logistics, ATS Race Supplies through OMP Race Wear and Oracle Branding.
The journalists were Andrew Leopold, Denis Droppa, Mark Jones, Michele Lupini, Sean Nurse, Mark Smyth, Lindsay Smyth, and Janine van der Post. They each competed behind the wheel of a standard 1.2 Polo.
