Step back in ti­me at Ka­roo-lus car show

George Herald - Auto Dealer - - News -

One of the very po­pu­lar exhi­bits at last y­e­ar’s Col­lec­tors’ Fair in Graaff Rei­net was the Vin­ta­ge and Clas­sic Car Show.

The or­ga­ni­sers from the Mid­land Car Club in Graaff Rei­net ha­ve de­ci­ded to host a si­mi­lar e­vent at t­his y­e­ar’s Ka­roo-lus Fes­ti­val on 28 and 29 Sep­tem­ber, but aims to ma­ke it e­ven big­ger and bet­ter.

T­his y­e­ar’s show, which will be held at the U­ni­on High School sports fields, will al­so in­clu­de se­lected mo­di­fied cars, as well as vin­ta­ge and clas­sic mo­tor­cy­cles. An ad­ded at­tracti­on for the vehi­cles’ o­w­ners will be a trip to see the fos­sils at Wel­l­wood Farm ne­ar Ni­euBet­hes­da with the clas­sic vehi­cles on F­ri­day 28 Sep­tem­ber.

A lig­ht lunch will be pro­vi­ded, as well as a most in­te­res­ting tour. On­ly a very short stretch of the d­ri­ve will be on a gra­vel ro­ad, as the dri­vers will ob­vi­ous­ly want to be very ca­re­ful with their be­lo­ved vehi­cles.

Last y­e­ar, a­bout 75 cars took part in the show. One of the or­ga­ni­sers, Han­nes van Jaars­veld, is ho­ping to at le­ast dou­ble that num­ber t­his y­e­ar, es­pe­ci­al­ly with the in­clu­si­on of the mo­di­fied cars and mo­tor­cy­cles. Al­re­a­dy so­me en­tries ha­ve been re­cei­ved from as far a­field as East Lon­don, Port E­li­za­beth and Ge­or­ge.

The club ho­pes that the e­vent will con­ti­nue to grow in fu­tu­re y­e­ars, and will look to tie in with ot­her e­vents run­ning in the a­rea.

A­nyo­ne who would li­ke to book a pla­ce, or who would li­ke mo­re in­for­ma­ti­on, can con­tact or­ga­ni­ser Cor­nie Jan­sen on 084 581 8225.
