In General

During old car rallies the accuracy of the driver and the navigator is tested and not how fast the car can go. Speedometers, odometers and rev. counters are sealed and replaced by stop watches and clues en route.

The club also boasts a very active program of social outings / get togethers every second Sunday of the month which are arranged for the whole family to enjoy. This takes the form of a display with a theme, fun run or interesting activity of some kind. This provides an opportunity to drive and enjoy your old car. Non- members or members from other clubs are always welcome at our meetings. Our second Sunday program is normally organised by different club members --- for club members. It is normally a bring and braai, the club bar is open, prizes awarded and fun is had by the whole family and friends and a lovely opportunity to get to know each other..
