SEFAC Giro Del Capo 2011
Hi all, this was an event organised by the official Ferrari owners club of South Africa called SEFAC (Southern Equitorial Ferrari Automobili Club).
This was an event that took place down in Cape Town for a week, starting last week Monday and ended this past weekend. Unfortunately I was not part of this event, but have local photographer, Desmond Louw of Desmond Louw Photography to thank for these awesome photos he took on the trip. Desmond was invited by SEFAC to document the event.
There was a total of about 45 Ferraris that took part in the event.
They drove almost every pass in the Western Cape and what better way of doing it, than in a Ferrari.
Places visited also included Knysna and Matjiesfontein.
Some photo details :
- Photo with the long bridge and helicopter in view : This road was briefly closed to traffic on the huge bridge over the Knysna lagoon, so all of the drivers could open the throttle for a little while. Desmond says the sound those 45 machines amplified in that valley was just insane! One Ferrari owner told him that night he actually shed a tear while doing it.
- Photo with old lady : Her name is Thelma Blair-Hook and she got to go for a ride in one of the cars and get this, she is 102 years old and loved it and wanted to go for a longer ride.
- Photo of the Pirelli 308 : The driver is the President of the Ferrari Owners Club North America.
- Photo showing aerial view of mountain roads : The owners went to the famous Gydo pass just behind Ceres, this is where a local hill climb event takes place called King Of The Mountain.
- Photo showing aerial view of line of cars : Rally driver Enzo Kuun took Desmond in his helicopter to track the red line on the N1 highway in Cape Town, AWESOME!
- Photo showing aerial of two 599's : These are GTO's.
- Photo in the tunnel : This is the Huguenot tunnel and it was closed for the drivers for a while as they blasted through at the speed of light! Desmond heard one driver saying he did over 300km/h in the tunnel.
- Photo showing bad weather : The drivers arrived at a very wet and slippery Franschoek Pass, which was apparently too slippery for some.
- Group Photo : The owners with their Cavallino Rampante's.
