The fourth round of the RCX was held at Meyerton Raceway located about 50km south of Johannesburg, South Africa. Overnight rain affected conditions so it would be a damp start to qualifying. Qualifying saw JQ-Racing/REDS/AKA driver Miguel Haasbroek take TQ and manage to post an overall time 13 seconds faster than anyone else. Tiaan Oelofse was in 2nd and Guilherme de Sousa rounded off the top 3. In the main Tiaan took an early lead as Miguel had not managed to capitalize from the TQ spot, however, Miguel managed to catch and pass Tiaan and never looked back. Miguel took the win with Tiaan in 2nd. A great drive from fellow JQ driver Thomas Schmuck took the final podium spot, and a convincing TQ and win in the E-Buggy class.
