Two new high-level appointments will ease operations

Kyalami-based South African Rally Raid race car manufacturer Red-Lined Motorsport has confirmed two more high level appointments as the company continues to grow on international demand for its vehicles and services. Luke Botha comes in as Chief Operating Officer for Red-Lined International from its South African based head office, while Chris Lanting joins as After Sales Manager at Red-Lined Europe.

“Luke Botha comes in to alleviate pressure on our continual growth in the operational sphere,” Red-Lined CEO Terence Marsh confirmed. “That now affords me more time to concentrate on both our ever-growing international distributor and customer base, where Chris Lanting will now take responsibility for our after sales service within our Red-Lined Europe operation. We look forward to working with both Luke and Chris and their respective contributions as we take our business to the next level.”

Luke Botha is no stranger to the South African Rally Raid Championship where he has proven a worthy competitor over the years. While Botha has worked with Red-Lined Motorsport on various fronts at an operational level in the past, he is also an astute businessman and has a reputation for his knowledge and an experience across different business sectors. Luke is relishing the challenge to work with the team as we embark on this next phase of growth within our business.

An experienced race technician and team manager, Chris Lanting hails from Rolde in the Netherlands. Chris raced Dakar 2014 in his self-built HAN-GO4 race car, before working as part of the Red-Lined technical team in the 2015 Dakar. Lanting was more recently a lecturer at the TT-Institute in Assen, where he designed and built a race car with his students. They went on to race in several events as a team. “Chris has extensive international experience within the rally raid industry as driver, team manager and technician and as such we are looking forward to his contributions at Red-Lined Europe,” Terence Marsh concluded.

Having recently returned from Dakar 2024, where two Red-Lined customer crews defied the odds to come home among the official 37 Ultimate Class finishers and maintain an impeccable record in the world’s toughest motor race, Red-Lined now begins their preparation for the competitive South African Rally Raid championship.
