THE 26th Amatola Classic Car Run last Sunday was a great success, with 111 cars taking part, 18 of which were from Komani, 10 from King William’s Town and two from Port Elizabeth. Public support was good, with a big send-off from The Hub in Beacon Bay.
The run as usual ended at Kei Road, with a sumptuous steak and vegetable lunch prepared by the Kei Road Club. There were a number of cars and people not seen at previous runs.
Organiser Joyce Hattingh said she was pleased with the turnout, and thanked all involved.
“The Kei Road community went to a lot of trouble to make the participants feel welcome”, she said. “They provided farm stalls, a touch farm for the children and their usual jovial hospitality, saying that they were also pleased with the support, and were looking forward to hosting the event again in 2017”.
The Kei Road Club welcomes events of this nature, and they also host regular “steak evenings” which are open to the public.
Hattingh also thanked the main sponsor of the run, Tiger Wheel and Tyre, and Keg and Beacon for hosting the start.
