Suikerbosrand picnic
March 2006

Meeting for an early morning start at a local garage,
enjoying coffee and muffins.

The cars attracted a lot of attention, even from the authorities! But fortunately their interest had nothing to do with law-enforcement...

"Hey, where am I supposed to sit?"
Gentleman, start your engines!

We caused quite a spectacle on the highway and received many friendly waves from other motorists.

Once out on the country roads the WO owners decided to "stretch their legs" a bit,
sounding like a squadron of Spitfires as they came blasting past us! Wonderful!

More cars joined us at the entrance to Suikerbosrand.

"OK chaps, which way do we go?!"

The Suikerbosrand Nature reserve has a 66 km circular route with a picnic spot located halfway.
