Capetonian Harold Durnez has defeated all odds and won the Cars.co.za Fortuner 4x4 Challenge to stand a chance of winning a new Toyota Fortuner 2.4 GD-6 4x2 manual.
In September 2016, Cars.co.za took to social media in search of the ultimate multitasker to represent us in the Toyota Next Level Freedom Fortuner 4x4 Challenge. To be eligible for selection, applicants were required to submit a 20-second video showcasing their multitasking skills plus physical ability (running, swimming, cycling etc.) and provide reasons why they should be selected as a finalist.
The team at Cars.co.za had the tough task of selecting the 5 best submissions and after much deliberation, we decided that Harold Durnez, Tshiama Kekana, Roger Westbrook, Saleha Mohideen and Obadiah Naidoo would be our finalists in the Cars.co.za Fortuner 4x4 Challenge.
Harold Durnez excelled in the physical test to win the Cars.co.za Fortuner 4x4 Challenge.
All 5 finalists joined us in Cape Town for a day of fun-but-difficult challenges to determine who would represent us in the final Toyota Next Level Freedom Fortuner 4x4 Challenge taking place on 15-16 November 2016 in Knysna.
Harold Durnez came out on top on the day and he will team up with one of 4 celebrity sportsman in Knysna including Dakar Rally driver Giniel de Villiers, Cheetahs rugby player Ryno Benjamin, Bafana Bafana star Siphiwe Tshabalala and cyclist Andrew McLean from Toyota Cyclelab. Harold and his celebrity teammate will compete against 3 contestants for the ultimate prize, a new Toyota Fortuner 2.4 GD-6 4x2 manual valued at R454 000.
The Toyota Next Level Freedom Fortuner 4x4 Challenge will be recorded and televised on Supersport. Follow @ToyotaSA on Twitter for more updates.
