The North West Province community will benefit from the Oven Fresh Biscuits 500, round four of the SA Off Road Championship for Production and Special Vehicles – presented by Absa – which takes place in the Mafikeng area on July 25-26. -

- Cornbake Foods, who daily manufacture 70 tons of bulk biscuits at their Johannesburg factory and of which 40 percent is sold in the North West Province, has agreed to donate 1,5 tons of Oven Fresh Biscuits to worthy causes in areas through which the event passes. -

- “We will embark on a road show before the Oven Fresh Biscuits 500 and visit the communities that will benefit from our donation,” said Sam Moolla, managing director of Cornbake Foods. “The North West Province community is a major consumer of Oven Fresh Biscuits and this is a small token of our appreciation for their support.” -

- The Mafikeng Motor Club is working closely with Tribal Chiefs in the Disaneng, Mokgobistad, Barolong, Dinokana, Motswedi and Gopane to identify schools, clinics, old age homes and the like to ensure that the biscuits are fairly distributed. -

- “As organisers we are very dependent on the Tribal Chiefs who annually allow us to set the route through the areas under their control,” said route director, Mike Kinnear. “We have always had enthusiastic support from the Tribal Chiefs and are grateful to Cornbake Foods for assisting us in giving something back to the community.” -

- The Oven Fresh Biscuits 500 will be held on July 25 and 26 with race headquarters at the Mmabatho Tusk Hotel. Proceedings get underway with a 42km Prologue at 13:00 on Friday, July 25 to determine starting positions for Saturday’s main event, which starts at 08:00 and will consist of two loops of 224km. -
