Puma Energy Botswana continues in its mandate of fueling experiences. Over the weekend, the fuel and lubricants company, for the sixth consecutive year sponsored the 2018 Khawa Sand Dune Challenge that took place in Khawa from May 10 to 13. This year’s Khawa Sand Dune Challenge saw Puma Energy take their product to the small village. A mobile petrol and diesel filling station was set-up with fuel being sold and charged at local prices.

This allowed all motorists to stop in and fill up with ease at a place conveniently nearby thus ensuring the smooth running of the entire event that drew in masses. Bearing in mind that the nearest filling station is 176km away from Khawa, the mobile filling station certainly brought an undeniable convenience and accessibility for Khawa spectators. Puma Energy’ Convenience Retail Manager, Thapelo Mfosi highlighted the importance prioritising safety and protection of the environment at the temporary refueling facility at the event. “Our focus on safety centres on mitigation of spillages and possibly incidents of fire, for instance, our facility will have a temporary bundwall able to contain 1 000 litres and this is to protect the environment in the event of a spillage,” according to Mfosi. “We have procured 50kg foam fire extinguishers that have longer hoses and can be administered from a distance in the event of a fire,” he said.

The Khawa Sand Dune Challenge attracts over 7 000 motorsport enthusiasts from across the region annually and the numbers continue to grow with the event’s popularity.
