The next morning I had to be at the Knysna Hillclimb, an annual speed festival. "Pure adrenalin and fun filled action for the whole family". We'll see.
The event is sponsored by Renault and this is also the South African launch of the new Renault Clio Gordini.
This brings me to the second car I had to drive down from Cape Town this week - The Renault Megane RS:
This car was voted the best Hot Hatch for 2011 by both CAR and TopCAR magazines and boy, it's FAST!!!
I had to do a quick driving impressions article on the RS with the drive from Cape Town to Knysna and what a treat this car is! But I'd rather not say just how fast it goes on an open forum like this.
Back to the races.
Once these babies fired up it was clear that "Pure adrenalin and fun filled action for the whole family" was an understatement! Kermit loves the Mustangs!
I am more of a Ferrari man.
The fastest Mercedes of this model in South Africa:
Our spot next to the track:
That chopper probably got some GREAT footage.
