The traditional start of the 2014 VWSA Rally took place at the Auto Pavilion in Uitenhage at on 11 June 2014. It is from this point that the Volkswagen Rally cars headed to stage one opposite the Uitenhage hospital on Mission Road.
Stage one was 16km of loose surface gravel rallying with three spectator points.
