May

26th: Combined Breakfast Run with the Lotus Register

The venue will be The Old School Deli in the Eye of Africa golf estate, www.eyeofafrica.co.za

As this is South of Johannesburg, we will meet at the Engen Blockhouse 1 Stop on the R59 South,  just before Henley on Clip and Meyerton at 8h30 for a 9h00 departure. Drive to Deli is about 20 km and 15 minutes.

Please note that as this is in an estate, there are a few formalities to gain access, we will receive a common reference number on the morning,  which will be communicated to all at the 1 Stop. Each car will need to use this common number to get into and out of the access gate. Each driver will have to show their driver's license to be scanned and allow the car disc to be scanned also.

See you there.

26th: Cars in the Park - Pietermaritzburg
