Run to Cars in the park Pietermaritzburg
As we’ve done for the past two years we’re arranging a run to Cars in the Park which is a great display and a super run.
The plan is to meet along the N3 on Friday, 17th May and proceed down the Old Main Road via Standerton and Volksrust to Newcastle where we’ll spend the night at the Majuba Lodge (owned by MG Car Club members).
On Saturday, after breakfast, we continue down the Old Main Road to the Protea Hilton Hotel at the top of Town Hill in Pietermaritzburg.Show all.... Hide all....
After the show on Sunday we’ll then either spend the evening at the Protea Hilton again or go up the road a few kilometers to Rawdons Hotel in Nottingham Road.
The costs are as follows:
We will collect 50% of the proposed bill and pay it to the relevant Hotel to reserve the rooms and you will be responsible for the balance of the bill, including dinner and drinks, on departure.So for example if you and your partner propose to spend one evening at each Hotel you will need to pay R865.50 into the MG Car Club account to confirm your booking. We will pay this to the relevant hostelry and you will be responsible for the balance of your bill on leaving the next morning.
The MG Car Club account details are:
Please note if you pay the Car Club by cash or cheque there will be an additional R15 per deposit (for EFT’s there is no charge).
So if you’re keen please phone me on 0834495220 or 0117877502 (Work) or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll arrange your bookings.
We look forward to you joining us for a fun weekend.
Overheating is an ongoing (and expensive) problem for our cars. The original cooling system simply cannot cope in modern day traffic and with modern fuels which burn hotter. They were not designed to run in ambient temperatures that we experienced in S.A. (especially in summer). Read Full article...
