Trio Events will once again be hosting the Hancook Land Cruiser Festival and Africa Record 2019 from 6 to 8 September at Sondela Nature Reserve & Spa near Bela-Bela.
This will be the 7th year that this great event will take place and the organisers have managed to break the previous records every year. In 2018 the record was set on 491 Land Cruisers at one site on one day, as well as 413 Land Cruisers in a moving convoy of at least 20 km. The convoy will once again be an off-road route at Sondela, with a couple of challenges along the way. The record attempt was overseen and verified by the South African Book of Records, managed by the Radical Group.
Limited Bush Camp (without power, but with excellent ablution facilities) sites are available to participants during the festival and can be booked online when a Cruiser is registered to take part at www.ekspo.co.za. Sondela also offers other accommodation and reservations and enquiries can be made directly with the resort at (014) 736-8900.
The resort is an estimated 80 km north of Pretoria, adjacent to the N1 highway at the Bela-Bela offramp. The resort is well equipped and offers many activities. Visit www.sondela.com for more information. Sondela is also the home of the renowned kykNET Buite Ekspo Limpopo, managed by Trio Events as well.
Other activities offered during the course of this weekend include a 4x4 obstacle course, LA Sport Cruiser gravel drag racing, outdoor product exhibitions, Sondela entertainment for the children, Jimmy’s Steakhouse Sauces performing artists on stage, Sondela mountain bike activities, bar facilities and food vendors.
The festival is a family orientated event and the facilities at Sondela enhances the concept.
