MORE INFORMATION

Pre ’46 Bob Johnston Run

This year’s breakfast run will start from the small parking area on the corner of Sandown & Campground Roads in Rondebosch (behind St Thomas church). We will meet from 08h30 and plan to leave by latest 09h00. Route instructions will be given at the start. 

We will be having brunch at a restaurant in Constantia at R100/head. Entrants will be offered a choice of menu.

If you have not already entered for this breakfast run please contact Colin Greyvensteyn on events@crankhandleclub.co.za to reserve your spot. We need to confirm numbers with the Restaurant by Monday 16 September 08h00 at the latest.

If you have space to take passengers please let me know as we have people that would like to attend the event but they don’t have a Pre’46 car. If you don’t have a car and would like to join us please let me know and we will see if we can accommodate you.

All payments to be made into the club account, use Pre46 and your surname as a reference and send through your POP to events@crankhandleclub.co.za.

Oily Rag Run – Sunday 20 October

We will be starting from Franschoek Motor Museum and finishing off with a lunch at Crossley and Webb.

This run is for pre-1966 unrestored vehicles. We define “unrestored” as never having had a body-off restoration so please do include a picture of your car with your entry form so that it can be considered. Vehicles will also be subject to scrutiny before the start, and scored according to originality.

NB! Please note that this year the entries will work a little differently to previous years. As the event can only accommodate 100 people, we will give preference to competitors, with the balance of space being allocated to spectators so please do not make any payments until you have received confirmation of your entry.

If you have space to take passengers please let me know as we have people that would like to attend the event but they don’t have an Oily Rag car. If you don’t have a car and would like to travel in an Oily Rage vehicle, please let me know and we will see if we can accommodate you with one of the other competitors. Otherwise please enter as a spectator.
