RE: LM Classic Rally / South Africa – Swaziland – Mozambique
On day one 27th April, (400km) we will start once again in Witbank taking us through Amsterdam into the Southern parts of Swaziland through to Piggs Peak Hotel and Casino. As seen on our distances, this is the longest day of our event followed by an easy three days thereafter.
On day two 28th April, (189km) we will be travelling from Piggs Peak to Luve with a stop at Matsapha Airport where we are awaited by an eventful few hours of excitement, thereafter our second night accommodation in Swaziland at the Simunye resort. (A full evening’s program has been planned at this venue) We have been invited to be part of their 2018 Swaziland motor show and awaiting further correspondence from this organization due to the impact of 2017’s event held in Swaziland, we have been recognized as a prestigious motorsport event to their country. (To be advised on our next newsletter)
On day three 29th April, (Sunday – 131km) we cross the border at Lomahasha border into Mozambique where one of our sponsors will be treating us to a cheese experience pit stop. We will follow a visit to Pequenos Libombos dam for a refreshment stop where we will leave heading towards Maputo for our second special stage where we intend to be at the Southern Sun Maputo hotel by 3pm. Prize giving will take place at 7pm.
On day four 30th April, we will be doing a trip to Inhaca Island by boat that is included in your entry fee. Drinks and snacks on the boat will be included, lunch is excluded. Note: This is if the ocean permits us to depart. Alternative arrangements will be made should this not be possible.
Day five will be the departure day on the 1st of May – Public Holiday.
We have changed the event with regards to escorting in Swaziland & Mozambique and have placed more competitive stages to make this event more interesting. The cost for entry fee includes accommodation, breakfast, snack lunches, dinner, fuel by GALP (Swaziland), fuel by GALP (Mozambique) and insurance across border to Mozambique. The boat trip for the 30th of April has also been included in the package.
We would like to thank 2017’s competitors who made it possible for us to donate funds to Remar Childrens home in Mozambique and old age home in Johannesburg as seen in pictures below with surplus money we received from our partners. The LM radio classic car event has made a difference in other people’s lives.
