Tankwa Karoo spider i.d

I found this spider on the dirt road in the Tankwa karoo. It was super fast across the ground, would love to know what species it is. http://i154.photobucket.com/albums/s272/fruitcakelou/Tankwaspider1.jpg http://i154.photobucket.com/albums/s272/fruitcakelou/Tankwaspider2.jpg Thanks
