Duncan Vos was born in Barberton on the 30th November 1960. In his late teens he showed both a keen interest and the promise of real talent in motorsport.
That talent translated into success when Duncan was crowned as South African Formula GTI champion in 1993. Following this success Duncan moved on to saloon cars and the popular South African Touring Car series. In 1995 he won the Class B championship in this hotly contested series.
The demise of the popular but hugely expensive touring car championship left a void in circuit racing that forced a number of successful competitors to migrate to non-circuit competition. Duncan joined Glyn Hall’s off-road venture together with Giniel de Villiers and went on to win the South African Off-Road championship in 2002.
He followed this up with consecutive championships in the series in 2007 and 2008. Today Duncan is a benchmark competitor in the ABSA Off-Road series in his Castrol Team Toyota Hilux.
Duncan won the 2010 Carnival City round of the series. A number of other strong finishes during the year took him to third place overall in the Production Car category.
These multiple championships in different motorsport disciplines mark career highlights for Duncan. One regret is that his early success came with very few opportunities for South African’s to move into international competition.
Duncan runs his own building materials supply business. He is married to Ammon. They have two sons. He lists golf, mountain biking and running amongst his favourite hobbies. When it comes to going out for a meal. A good curry is at the top of his preferences.
Duncan is teamed with Rob Howie as his navigator.
