Day 1 - The journey starts at the RS Autosport address: 212 Bram Fischer Drive, Kensington B, Randburg, Johannesburg, where a warm cup of coffee and rusks will await you. The Clark of the course will make a few announcements for the day to advise on anything you might need to know along the route. You will be handed a roadbook where information such as where to turn and keep you on route to designated destinations, including road hazardous conditions such as potholes etc., are indicated.
Numbers and sponsor branding will be placed on vehicles. Once all the formalities have been concluded and Covid requirements finalised, car number one will leave at 8 am, followed by a 30 seconds gap between vehicles.
We will be using WhatsApp and Zello as the form of communication between guests during this event. Special instructions will also be identified along the road, such as sponsors flags. We will head towards Pretoria from Johannesburg, where we will pick up the N4 direction Dullstroom, where a local restaurant will receive us with a refreshment, quick coffee before we leave to Lydenburg.
At Lydenburg Engen garage, we will do a snack pit stop, a stretch of the leg and some entertainment provided by Mr Mohammed and his team.
The road through Long tom pass will definitely be an exciting challenge and breathtaking views should there be no fog. On arrival at the hotel we will be welcomed by its fantastic staff, and once again as per requirement a covid inspection will be done.
Day 2 - After breakfast, you will challenge Sabie and Pilgrims Rest's windy mountain passes with a compulsory fuel stop at Engin Sabie. Pilgrims rest will be a two hour stop for a lunch snack and a visit to this historic village. All arrangements have been made with the local authorities, including the tourism representatives of the area. The journey through Graskop, Hazyview will also be something to see.
The motor museum in Casterbridge will be our final stop for the day where you can enjoy a cold beverage before arriving at your accommodation for this evening. This gala evening will be hosted with the theme '70s, '80s, back to school dress code (Prize for the best dressed)
As we are not sure how long the previous night's party was, car number 1 on day 3 will only leave at 8.30 after breakfast.
These vehicles will challenge their ' performance once we have found the adequate and safe piece of tar on route to Kaapse Hoop, where we will be spending some time over lunch hour.
We will then be returning to Nelspruit to show off these beautiful machines at the local roadhouse for about an hour. We will have a relaxed evening for the last night before heading home the next day, the 27th of April, a public holiday.
