- John Weir-Smith and Geoff Minnitt will contest class A (unrestricted Special Vehicles) in their BMW-engined Jimco. The pair finished third in last year's championship after winning the Nissan Sugarbelt 400 in Kwazulu Natal and the Queen Motor Spares Tarka 400 in the Eastern Cape.-

- Father-and-son team Rob and Gareth Wark will share the drives in their single-seater Mighty Mag in class B (two-litre four-cylinder Special Vehicles).-

- Scott Abraham and Richard 'Ouboet' Carolin will share the familiar black Jeep Cherokee in class F (unrestricted two-wheel drive Production Vehicles), with both experiencing a debut, the 22-year old Abraham as a driver and the veteran Carolin as a navigator.-

- Andre Botha, managing director of Kopanong Hotel, and co-driver Beans Heydenrych make their off-road debut in class F in the ex-Walker Evans-built Chevvy truck that won the Parker 400 race in the United States a few years ago.-

- Rounding out the five-car Superteam is the Porsche-engined Raceco of Nic Gosler and Glen Steyn, which will contest class S (for older specification Special Vehicles). The pair won their class in the 2002 Carnival City Casino 400 in their debut year.-

- The team is aiming for championship wins in each of the four classes contested. Support comes from Goodyear, Castrol, Hausberger & Associates, Volvo Trucks, Red Heart, Tydek Auto, National Signs, Chicago Pneumatic and Atlas Copco.
