Prince Albert enchants MG Drivers

- Chris Brown, Durban -

The MG Car Club of South Africa held its biennial Indaba in Port Elizabeth from 4 to 8 September which was attended by approximately 200 members from the South African clubs, joined by 15 visitors from Holland, the UK, Australia and Malaysia.

The four days were taken up with tours to local places of interest, a motor gymkhana, in MGs, a visit to the Volkswagen Museum, judging of a selection of top quality restored MGs and a gala dinner/dance with the 60’s theme “Bobby Sox and Brylcream”.

At the conclusion of the Indaba, a group of ten members from KwaZulu-Natal toured the Western Cape and the Free State, which included crossing the Swartberg, driving part of the route to Gamkaskloof and a stopover in Prince Albert.

After a comfortable stay at Onse Rus, Ailsa Tudhope’s Ghost Walk and a delicious dinner at the Karoo Kombuis, they plan to include Prince Albert once again in their 2010 tour when they hold their Indaba in Oudtshoorn.
