    Johan - I am not too sure if the sponsors will be able to sort you, BUT, if you DON'T get right at the sponsors, you can try one of the following:
    You can go DIY route:
    - purchase a 70 watt metal halide starter/control gear and a light fitting (brand: RADIANT) from ie. Aurora Lights (they are everywhere - in Montague Gardens, in the new Business Park between the M5 and the N1, etc. - or alternatively any lighting / electrical shop
    - you can / SHOULD be able to get your globe that you require, at "The Lamphouse". They are in Woodbridge Business Park, close to the Cash-n-Carry in Koeberg Road (Milnerton)

    Good luck in your search. I am quite sure that you would/should be sorted soon!
