first_img0Shares0000Khan wins 2WD NT Class ChampionshipNAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 13 – Former multiple Safari Rally Coupe des Dames navigator champion Safina Khan is at it again, this time clinching the 2018 KCB Kenya National Autocross Championship 2WD Non Turbo Class title.Safina wrapped up her 2018 championship campaign in second overall position but achieved her fairytale feat after Hamza Anwar failed to meet the 75% requirement as stipulated in the national competition rules. As per the KMSF NCR’s 2018 Clause 10.5, a competitor should have competed in 75% of the events prescribed in the national motorsports calendar to be entitled to be recognized as national champion if he/she has the most number of points that would make them the national champion. If the competitor has not achieved the75% events threshold, then the next driver with the highest number of points but meets this criterion will be declared the national champion.Following this Clause, and the fact that Hamza Anwar only managed 70% of the events as of the belated WKMC Round 4, compared to Safina’s 90%- she becomes the new champion. Safina takes overvghe title from another retired KNRC female navigator Gillian Bailey.Here’s what she had to say in an interview: “It has been a very adrenaline spiked, fun-filled and sensational Autocross Season 2018 for me. I’m overly excited to be the new champion in the class despite my underpowered machine. It hasn’t sunk in yet. We started off in the last quarter of the Autocross 2017 Championship in a small, cute, well-prepared Toyota Vitz which had been previously left to rust in some showroom. My husband (Adil Khan) took the Toyota Vitz and decided to upgrade it into an autocross car set to participate in the 2WD Non-Turbo class. This car was actually meant for my firstborn son, who co-incidentally was by then, almost sitting for his IGCSE Cambridge Exams. So, the decision to make the car an under-powered 1500c.c was a deliberate one, to suit my son and get him accustomed to racing in the Autocross.”Safina competed in the last two autocross events for 2017 to get a feel of the car. Although she found it seriously lacking in speed and sprint, with a 1500 c.c engine and drivetrain, she nevertheless pushed onwith it to get some 2WD experience. “I was at this point pitted against much faster and superior machineswhich were 1800 c.c and even up to 2.6 liters in my class – 2wd Non – turbo challenge.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgDingaan Thobela established himself as a charismatic, gifted fighter and a favourite of the South African public.Former boxing champion Dingaan Thobela is known as “The Rose of Soweto”.(Image: Cara Viereckl, via IOL)Brand South Africa reporterDingaan Thobela has proved himself as one of South Africa’s most talented boxers, although perhaps not the most hardworking fighter. The charismatic Thobela started his professional career in 1986 as a junior welterweight, but has since moved up to the light heavyweight ranks – representing a rise of almost 16 kilograms.He has even spoken of possibly campaigning as a heavyweight whether he was serious or not remains to be seen.After an amateur career that saw him win 80 times and lose just three bouts, Thobela’s first professional fight pitted him against Quinton Ryan, a bout he won in four rounds. The slick-punching Thobela was held to a draw in his fourth fight, but proceeded to win 25 fights in a row over the next five years, registering 19 wins by knockout along the way.Dingaan Thobela starts his professional career in 1986 as a junior welterweight, but later moved up to the light heavyweight ranks – representing a rise of almost 16 kilograms. (Image: African Ring)Fighting outside South AfricaAs he scored more and more wins, Thobela became increasingly marketable and began to fight outside of South Africa. In 1990, three of his five fights were in the United States and all three ended in victories, two by knockout over Pascual Aranda and Mauricio Aceves who he both disposed of in the fifth round.In 1991, Thobela’s three contests were all won on points, and in 1992 he fought only twice, defeating Tony Foster over eight rounds and stopping Peter Till in nine rounds.At the beginning of February 1993, “The Rose of Soweto” took on Tony Lopez for the WBA lightweight title. Lopez had previously fought twice against South African boxing legend Brian Mitchell. Mitchell, who retired as WBA champion after 13 successful title defences, had fought Lopez in Sacramento on both occasions. The first bout ended in a controversial draw and Mitchell left the matter in no doubt the second time around.Controversial lossThobela discovered how difficult it was to win in Lopez’ backyard when he lost on a controversial points decision. Four months later he faced Lopez at Sun City, and this time he captured the title.Thobela made his first defence in October, but came up against a superior fighter in the unbeaten Orzubek Nazarov, who claimed a convincing 12-round decision. Thobela challenged for the title again in March 1994, but Nazarov had his number and won over 12 rounds in a repeat of his previous victory. Later in the year Thobela faced journeyman Karl Taylor in England and was surprisingly knocked out in the eighth round of their contest.In 1995 Thobela got back on track with five victories, all of them by knockout, and added a further two KO victories by June 1996. However, matters went haywire again for “The Rose” when he faced Geoff McCreesh in November. McCreesh, who came into the fight with a record of 15 wins and three losses, mostly against little-known British opponents, stunned Thobela in the second round, sending the South African to the canvas for a huge upset victory.Beaten by a journeymanIn his next fight, in March 1997, Thobela was beaten by American journeyman Willy Wise, who came into the fight with 21 wins – only six by knockout – three losses and four draws. The South African was favoured to win, but Wise secured a points victory.Questions were being asked about Thobela’s commitment, but he secured a big win later in the year, defeating fellow South African Gary Murray on a fourth-round TKO. In 1998 he fought only once, drawing against Carlos Baldomir over 12 rounds. Thobela looked rusty and out of shape and doubts grew about his boxing career.However, he returned for two fights in 1999. He won in seven rounds against Walter Danett, but was beaten on points by Cornelius Carr for the WBF middleweight title.World title winIn early 2000 he won a points decision over Soon Botes to earn a crack at Glen Catley’s WBC super middleweight title. The Briton was heavily favoured to retain his crown, but Thobela, way behind on all three judges’ scorecards, staged a strong finish, dramatically knocking Catley out with only seconds remaining in the bout. He was once again a world champion.As had happened previously, Thobela was unable to defend his world title, losing to Canada’s Dave Hilton on a controversial points decision in Montreal. Shortly afterwards, Hilton was jailed for rape and Thobela was given another crack at the title against Eric Lucas in November 2001. He struggled to make the weight, however, and Lucas dominated the fight before winning on a TKO in the eighth round.Thobela was a natural: a gifted boxer who, at the the height of his career, established himself as a charismatic, gifted fighter and a favourite of the South African public.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

first_imgThe increasing usage of BitTorrent services has been a living nightmare for big industry publishers. The RIAA is one of the most notable opponents of BitTorrent sites due to most users using the service to pirate music among other things. Some of these opponents fail to see the upside to using BitTorrent technology as a great marketing tool. However, a Program Director at the University of Seattle has chosen to use BitTorrent to generate buzz and spread his latest eBook to the masses.Pirate My Book PleaseIn an extensive guest post on TorrentFreak, a well known BitTorrent blog, Dan Morrill told his experience with offering his latest eBook, ‘Selling Books On Amazon, Tips and Secrets‘ on popular BitTorrent tracker Mininova. Dan explains that his initial reason for releasing his eBook using BitTorrent was not for marketing purposes, but “to control the release and gather good stats on the process.” We don’t think he could’ve picked a better service. Within the first 24 hours, Morrill’s eBook had been downloaded close to 700 times. Based on the stats he received from Mininova, Morrill was also able to pinpoint the countries in which the eBook was being downloaded the most. Africa ranked high on the list, which is understandable because of the relatively large amount of e-commerce businesses that are set-up in Africa. Morrill was surprised to see India contributing to 5.2% of the overall downloads.Operation BitTorrent a SuccessMorrill rated his overall experience as highly satisfying and recommends using BitTorrent as a great content distribution channel for those that don’t mind. The expansion of the BitTorrent network will only increase in the next few years. In doing so, we think this may be a tool that publishers will eventually start taking a lot more seriously than they do now. It’s undeniable that BitTorrent can prove to be an effective marketing tool for a cheap price when used correctly. Nine Inch Nails concluded the same in March of this year when they uploaded part 1 of their 4 part album Ghosts I-IV to numerous BitTorrent sites. It became the #1 most downloaded album on The Pirate Bay, which helped to increase their sales tremendously for the rest of the album. We can only wonder when others will catch on to the effectiveness of using BitTorrent sites to market and distribute content.
