Team Lunetic Introduction
Their Team is called “Team Lunetic’’ after Lune’s first name.
Team Lunetic consists of (Lady Driver) Lunè Snyman age 27 and her father (Navigator) Edward Strydom, Age 51, competing in a Toyota Tazz 1600cc 20 Valve Twincam.
Lunè is a Pharmacist Assistant at Medico Pharmacy in Secunda and Edward is in the Oil selling industry residing in Ermelo.
The Strydom’s also own the “Ons Winkel” in Ermelo.
Lune’s career started with spectating at the Sasol Rallies and led to buying and rebuilding a rally car. Luné Snyman’s passion turned out to be a big showcase for her. Yes she is a women but a very good rally driver indeed. She bought and built her own car with some help from her dad.
Luné’s career as a rally driver is at the point that skills and potential is growing with a great pace. She is putting herself out there to attract partners and sponsors to benefit from her achievements and future endeavours in Rallying. She would love to get into business with a partner in rallying and give this Partner a great reputation.
The highlight of Team Lunetic was winning the National Rally Open Class Championship in 2017 and the ability to grow in the rally motorsport industry. They were up against tough competition in much more powerful cars, but they stayed loyal to their game plan and it all paid off. This was the first time in history that a woman driver won the Open Class Championship in South Africa.
It is a big privilege to compete as a father-daughter team. Without the community, local sponsors and supporters this team would have never existed. A big thank you to all our sponsers for making this dream a reality. Please make contact if you are interested in future sponsorships.
The annual running costs for Team Lunetic is between R350 000 and R450 000 which includes 7 or 8 rallies. Please follow the National Rally Championship Calendar at www.sarallying.co.za .
Lunè Snyman is one of South Africa’s upcoming rally stars in the National Rally Championship. Lunè is searching for a partner and sponsor to end off the 2018 Rally Championship season and also a permanent partner for the 2019 rally season.
