MOSSEL BAY NEWS & VIDEO - At least 26 Lamborghinis taking part in Race SA will visit Mossel Bay on Thursday, 22 August. Ranging in price range from R1.4 million to R14 million, these super fast cars will depart from Pinnacle Point at about 16:30 on a mass ride through town.
Part of this visit will be a controlled race up the steep Marsh Street from the Church Street interchange past the municipal building, and at least 20 locals can share in this experience and another loop through town as valued passengers.
The organiser and owners of the Lamborghinis are offering the public the opportunity to experience first hand the G-force acceleration and the purr of the massive horse powered engines as the vehicles make their way around town. To participate, seats are available for a nominal amount and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the ACVV-tehuise.
The mass ride, escorted by Mossel Bay traffic officers will depart from the Casino Road intersection at approximately 16:30 when the Lamborghinis will make their way down Mayixhale Street and Adriaans Road before joining Louis Fourie Road at the Crotz Street interchange.
From there the convoy will make its way via the N2 to Louis Fourie Road at the Langeberg Mall interchange.
Watch a video below:
The vehicles will stop shortly at De Bakke, where the 20 lucky winners will join the owners in the ride around the Point and through the centre of town. At the Church Street intersection, the Lamborghinis will get ready for a short, controlled race up Marsh Street past the Harry Giddey Park and municipal buildings.
On this stretch enthusiasts and photographers will be able to witness first hand the performance of these super vehicles as they roar up the hill.
The passengers will then be returned to the De Bakke parking area before the Lamborghinis make their way to the parking area below the St Blaize cave at the Point, where the public is invited to take photographs of the vehicles and interact with the owners.
Another, second loop through town will allow spectators even more opportunity to see - and hear - the vehicles in action.
From about 18:30 the vehicles will be parked along George Road while the owners have supper at the Aeronautica Business Lounge. Again, the public will be welcome to have a good look and photograph the vehicles.
The visit on Thursday by the 26 Lamborghinis is a prelude to the planned 2020 Daytona from 27 April to 3 May, when 50 super cars, and not only Lamborghinis, with their support staff and vehicles will travel from East London to Cape Town.
These competitors are expected to arrive in Mossel Bay on 30 April 2020.
