MOTORING NEWS - The 24th George Old Car Show, taking place on 8 and 9 February at Eden Technical High School, formerly known as PW Botha College, is the perfect family outing with lots of entertainment for all ages and will, this year, offer a few surprises to boot.
This year's event will feature a special exhibition on bakkies, the Valiant Club will be celebrating 60 years, Foxy Lady from AutoPavilion will again show off her beauty, an auction by Trader Auctions will lure bidders and a special exhibition of muscle cars will get the adrenaline pumping.
Veteran Tour coordinator and Savva chairperson, Philip Kuschke, confirmed that the 2020 Gapp Vettoer Tour will be held in the days preceding the main event.
Eighteen vehicles will take part in the tour. Three cars from the Southern Cape will depart from Cape Town on Tuesday 4 February. They will stop over at Gansbaai and Witsand, reaching Albertinia on Thursday afternoon.
On Friday morning they take the back road to Herbertsdale and on to PetroSA. Along the way the drivers will enjoy lunch sponsored by Gapp Café in George. The vehicles will be on show at Gapp Café at the Garden Route Mall from 13:00. Drivers will be treated to dinner at the Scrib Benzeum on Friday evening.
