Clear winners at Durban July

August 12th, 2019, Published in Articles: Energize, Articles: Vector

This year, the gelding Do It Again was the fifth horse in the 123-year history of the Durban July to win for two consecutive years. In a similar vein, Rand-Air’s Durban team was called on to “do it again” and supply the organisers with temporary lighting for the 2019 event.  In 2018, the organisers rented six units but increased this figure this year to ten. The equipment on hire consisted of Atlas Copco QLV, QLT, and QLB lighting towers and solar lighting. To cater for all the visitors’ vehicles, the organisers made extra space available on grounds near to the racecourse. However, they found that these vehicles and their contents presented an attractive target for the unscrupulous, prompting police to warn racegoers to secure their vehicles. As lighting serves as an effective deterrent, Rand-Air was contracted to provide the necessary equipment.
