Drivers Profile

Brandon Harcus is one of the iron men of offroad motor racing.  Like his legendary father, Arthur, he has an uncompromising approach to the sport and attacks races with single-minded determination. 

‘Winning is everything, finishing is something’is a saying associated with the great Australian off road adventure called the Kickstarters Gascoyne Dash, an epic race across Western Australia that Harcus completed in fourth place in 2009.  It sums up Harcus perfectly.

It’s an approach that has seen him win fewer races than he would have liked, but a highlight of his motor sport career was winning the 2003 national off road championship for special vehicles in his own creation, a BAT space frame special.

The son of the legendary off roader racerArthur, Harcus knows a little about the hard world of off road racing.  Since he conceived and oversaw the building of the first BAT in 2002, he has won some of South Africa’s top off road races,both as a driver and co-driver, and finished the toughest of all – the 1 000-km Desert Race in Botswana and the Lesotho 400 in the Maluti Mountains of Lesotho. 

He was a member of the victorious Motorite Racing team in 2006 that took the top three places in the national championship, with the legendary Alfie Cox winning from Evan Hutchison and Harcus.  All three drove BATs and each won two races in the eight-round series.  

Although no longer involved with the production of the BAT, he remains justifiably proud of the phenomenal record of these proudly South African vehicles, which have won

16 national championships in classes A (seven), B (six)and P (three) since 2002.
