The FIVEDRIVES campaign combines five Iconic locations across South Africa with five TGRSA ambassadors - putting the GR Yaris through its paces, while giving the motoring public their 'off-the-cuff' feedback on the vehicle.

Part 1: Aldo Scribante & Michael van Rooyen

The iconic Aldo Scribante Raceway located in Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth), played backdrop to the first instalment of the FIVEDRIVES campaign. With multiple high-speed sweeps, off-camber kinks and a fast, flowing design, Aldo Scribante is an excellent test of a vehicle's chassis, transitional behaviour and 'off-corner' grip.

Michael van Rooyen is no stranger to speed, usually found behind the wheel of the TGRSA Corolla Global Touring Car (GTC), high-speed grip-driving is the "Rustenburg Rocket's" speciality.
