Fhatuwani “Rasta” Rasivhenge is no stranger to the whistle when it comes to the icons of the industries close to him, although behind the wheel of his Mitsubishi ASX, it would be from the advantage of his commanding position behind the wheel.
Rasivhenge, who blew the whistle in the 2018 Rugby World Cup Sevens in San Francisco last week, became a test referee when he blew the whistle in the Rugby Sevens tournament in the 2016 Summer Olympics.
Born in Johannesburg in 1986, the 32-year-old became the youngest rugby referee to take charge of a final on National Rugby level when he was given the whistle in the 2015 Currie Cup Premier Division between the Golden Lions and Western Province. He is currently part of the referee squad for some of the nine tests of the Africa Gold Cup that started in June and run until 18 August.
“Driving the Mitsubishi ASX will help me take my game all over the country and other parts of Southern Africa,” he says of the open road abilities of the ASX.
The ASX, which recently got more exclusive with the addition of the top-of-the-range GLS CVT, continued its popularity in the same way as Rasta’s career. Today he is a Sevens, Super Rugby, Pro14 as well as an international referee, while the ASX also reached new heights in global sales. “The ASX perfectly suits my busy lifestyle – not only for manoeuvring through tight spots in town, but also for those weekends when I want to tackle the roads less travelled when I want to unwind with my family at a remote spot somewhere secluded. ”
