Both Heritage Day and Tourism Month are feted in grand style by a diverse group of car enthusiasts, when the Southern Cape Old Car Club’s (SCOCC) Heritage Tour, proudly supported by Recollection Rides, hits the road for a three-day tour.
The tour party of 46 participants and 26 special automobiles – which includes one less-than-vintage backup vehicle – sets off from Halfway Toyota in George after the scrutineering process. From here, participants head southwest before leaving the beaten N2 track.
From here the route follows: Day 1 from George to Swellendam, Bredasdorp and Arniston. Day 2 Arniston , Bredasdorp, Duineveld road Baardskeerdersbos, Gansbaai, Caledon via Villiersdorp to Franschhoek and back to Villiersdorp and Worcester. Day 3 Worcester, Robertson, Ashton, Montagu, Barrydale, Ladismith, Calitzdorp, Oudtshoorn. Day 4 Oudtshoorn, De Rust, Uniondale, Avontuur, Herold to George.
The cost includes accommodation and food for the trip. At R60 participants can enter the Franschhoek Motor Museum on the last day. A registration form needs to be completed.
