The fourth race of the 2018 Sand Marble Rally was hosted in Klimduin Brechtdorp. The conditions of the weather were partially cloudy, with the temperature at 19 degrees Celsius and the sand in moderate condition. This race marks both Superball's first step on the podium and first race win of his rally career.
After a strong start by both Blue Moon and Phoenix, the battle for the lead was looking to be a 5-horse race between Phoenix, Crazy Cat's Eye, Blue Moon, Lollipop and Superball. Crazy Cat's Eye was very competitive in the beginning half of the race, jostling with Phoenix for pole position. However, his downfall would come in a disastrous split entry, where he dropped just below the top 5. Meanwhile, Blue Moon and Superball took the lower lane and slingshot past Phoenix for the lead. A short battle for the lead would occur, but Blue Moon would fall to the pressure of Superball's high-speed corner attack. Meanwhile, Red Number 3's trademark surge through the field was present once again, fighting from the back towards the top 5. With the end of the race coming to an end, Red Number 3 would accelerate as hard as he could through the long straight to propel him towards the top of the table, but Superball's consistent performance kept him in front to secure his first taste of victory, despite Red Number 3's efforts.
