A classic motoring celebration in the heart of the Cape winelands

Recapturing the allure and romance of a bygone era, the Franschhoek Motor Museum has unveiled  their plans to host the FMM Concours and Time Trial, a glamorous celebration of classic cars and the undisputed golden age of motorsport, to be held on the L’Ormarins wine farm on 27 & 28 February 2010.

A revival of authentic motorsport and the prestige which surrounds luxury and vintage cars, the Concours and Time Trial will see celebrated period vehicles put through their paces as they travel around a specially-designed circuit, weaving their way through the unique corners and chicanes of this exceptional time trial.

The weekend will also see the nostalgia of classic vehicles reignited with an unparalleled showcase of the globe’s greatest cars. Whether you’re partial to a vintage Porsche or more interested in the original Ford Model T, the Concours exhibition will acknowledge the feats of the world’s leading car manufacturers as never-before-seen vehicles shed their dust jackets and emerge from their private collections for a display of motoring excellence.

A not-to-be-missed event on the social calendar, the 2010 FMM Concours and Time Trial will also play host to some of the country’s legends of motorsport with Giniel de Villiers and Sarel van der Merwe performing special runs around the circuit, as part of the weekend’s entertainment.

With various marquees and special guest appearances planned, the weekend will provide fun for the entire family. More modern car fanatics will also be pleased to hear that the Museum’s recently acquired Enzo Ferrari will also be put through its paces, with four lucky spectators chosen to witness its fierce power from the passenger’s seat.

Whether you’re a staunch motoring enthusiast or simply looking for a phenomenal family outing, the FMM Concours and Time Trial will provide an intoxicating blend of speed, drama, prestige and exceptional machinery.

Tickets are available through Computicket and will strictly be sold in advance.
