    The pictorial sign is possibly preferred over a verbatim syntax since the local spelling is apparently not that hot.

    Hey, all – big update from our man from South Africa! Also, there are a few other select photos below from Lyndon's recent travels around South Africa and Lethoso :pynd :ricky

    "Let’s go racing! I’m excited to announce that I will be racing the Kalahari Rally here in South Africa starting this weekend ✊️ Sonora Rally was the last time I raced Basil Bike and I will race him again this time. I have 4 days to prepare him, myself and everything for the race and will be sharing that preparation with you on here. Thanks to the Rally organization for allowing filming and sharing of the adventure through my media, I look forward to sharing it with you through my Races to Places series. #racing #racestoplaces #R2PKR18 www.kalaharirally.com"

    The Lyndon Poskitt Racing account (fan page) has been renamed to only say "Lyndon Poskitt." He also has a personal account.
