MEANDER THE MALUTI

The South African Regularity Rally Association (SARRA) hosts the popular MacGregor Maluti Meander at the end of April 2017. The event runs over three days and will see the Mont Aux Sources Hotel in the Drakensberg as its home base.

While it is open to cars and motorcycles of all ages, participants are encouraged to enter in classic vehicles, which for purposes of this event refers to vehicles which are 25 years and older. There will be two categories (open and sealed odometer) and cars and motorcycles will run in different classes, as will modern and classic vehicles.

Start time is 12h00 on Thursday 27 April in Harrismith, from where the route will head to Mont Aux Sources. Day two involves a competitive scenic route through the mountains to lunch in Nottingham Road, before rallying back to the hotel. The third day is a rest day to allow some relaxation, sightseeing and participation in the many activities on offer at the hotel and surrounds. The fourth and final day sees some more competition driving before rounding off with the Sunday evening prize giving. Check out is on Monday morning (a public holiday).

While there is an obvious competitive element to the event, it is designed to allow sufficient time to socialise and soak up this beautiful part of the country in your classic car. All roads used are tarred and every effort has been made to use the best condition surface available for the 600km route. Set speeds are all well within applicable speed limits, and it is an MSA-sanctioned event.
