We are planning a “fun rally type” excursion on 19th & 20th March. Who would be interested?
Prizes are on offer. Depart Shongweni to Sierra Ranch, Mooi River. First prize is a free weekend at Sierra Ranch valued at R3,000.00 for the lucky couple/team. We are limited between ten and fifteen vehicles with driver and navigator. This is a fun event to be enjoyed. Route is suitable for all sedan type vehicles and SUV’s, 4×4, etc.
Competitors will be leaving Polo Pony Hotel at 2 minute intervals and following a route schedule through the back roads of the Valley of a Thousand Hills. A very scenic route on both tar roads and mild gravel roads.
This is not race, you have as much chance of winning in your Toyota Tazz as you have in your fully kitted Land Cruiser. The emphasis is on maintaining an average speed over the whole course. As we leave at 2 minute intervals you won’t be able to follow anyone, they should be 2 minutes ahead, and someone else 2 minutes behind you.
There will be a minimum of 2 checkpoints along the way and you will be scored on how close you are to the projected time as if you could average 40 kph. Penalty points will be awarded depending on the time you are away from the projected time at that specific point. The team with the lowest points will be the winner.
It is a 160km route and we have a compulsory 20 minute lunch stop along the way, this will also be a checkpoint.
The cost is R 1950 per team (2 people) and wait for it, this includes breakfast at the Assagay Hotel, lunch on route, supper – prize giving (possibly a lamb on the spit) and breakfast on Sunday morning at the hotel. Please note that this price is for the whole team (2 people)
This is a family affair, bring granny and the kids along, we have negotiated a very good rate for all and sundry.
On Sunday after breakfast you can stay on for the whole day, they have an enormous swimming pool, tennis courts, putt putt, etc. if the kids want to they can go for horse rides on the farm. Well behaved horses.
For the Dad’s in their we have 2 4×4 tracks, one for the shinies 1-2 and the other a 4-5 graded track and you can play all day. There are some dongas for the real players too.
Come on guys, where can you have all this fun for the whole family, away from home and all those responsibilities for this reasonable price.
