2019 Speed Wrap Winner Crowned At Sign Africa And FESPA Africa Expo

Pooven Pillay (Roland), Speed Wrap winner Joey-Lee Erasmus (Wrap My Ride) and Robbie Lambe (Maizey Plastics).

Joey-Lee Erasmus was declared the ultimate winner of the 2019 Roland Speed Wrap Challenge at the Sign Africa and FESPA Africa expos. He has won a trip to compete at the FESPA World Wrap Masters Final at FESPA Global Print Expo, Madrid 2020.

Following close behind in second place was Gareth James from Wrap Formula and in third Vaughn Repsold from Lidicious Helmet Wraps.

The event was sponsored by platinum sponsor Roland, vinyl sponsors Grafiwrap (distributed by Maizey Plastics) and show sponsors Sign Africa and FESPA Africa.

The daily challenges, which took place from 11-13 September at Gallagher Convention Centre, involved participants racing against the clock to wrap a vehicle door to the best standards. The last challenge saw the top three competitors having to wrap a vehicle door with a special triple layer vinyl.

‘I am overwhelmed,’ said Erasmus, ‘I have been trying to win for the last four years.’
