Stellenbosch (Cape Town) – The action of the 2015 IMPI Challenge presented by Mitsubishi Motors will culminate at the picturesque Lievland and Warwick Wine Estates, Stellenbosch the weekend of 17 and 18 October 2015 in the form of the IMPI Challenge Cape Town #2.

Claude Eksteen and Trish Bahlmann claimed victory in the IMPI Elite Race Cape Town #1 earlier this year in respective times of 01 hour 37 minutes 15 seconds and 02 hours 05 minutes 01 second, with Eksteen celebrating his sixth IMPI Elite Race victory on the day.

Having gone up against top South African trail runner AJ Calitz, Eksteen had the following to say:  “I’ve never pushed so hard in an IMPI Elite Race.  The competition definitely made it more exciting.  Racing against the top guys just gives the win more credibility”.

According to Bahlmann, the Cape Town route is tougher than the Gauteng route.  “IMPI Cape Town rocks!  I love the challenge, the enjoyment and the prize money.  I wouldn’t miss this for the world”.
