The (DJ) Durban Johannesburg Motorcycle Race was first run in 1913 and completing it must have been a real feat of endurance. The event runs each year and I have been approached by John Austin-Williams to appeal for any information about the race. He is currently working on a website and hopes to include a page for each year the event was run and a page for each of the motorcycle types as well.

Please leave a comment below this post or get in touch with me, in the first instance, if you have any information, pictures and, especially, if you rode in the race. I’ll put up an alert once the DJ website is up and running.
