An epic 900km road test.

Our Jaguar 3.4 S Type has been finished.

So our Jaguar has had several short local test drives but the time has come to subject the fifty year old Clarence to a real road test. After being washed and polished he’s ready for his trip.

Our Jaguar will start out this weekend for an epic 900km round trip from Pretoria to Vuyani Safari Lodge on the outskirts of Hoedspruit.

We will leave Pretoria on the N4 (motorway) and cruise out of the industrial region and head for the Loveld.

Pieter will probably stop at Dullstroom to check levels and fill up on Coffee and waffles.

Leaving Dullstroom we’ll head up and over the Drakensburg mountains and drop down into the town of Hoedspruit. Turning right onto the R40 for short trip out of town Clarence will arrive at the Lodge and be checked over and be polished.

We’ve arranged for a professional photographer for a photoshoot. The images will appear on the website and here on Facebook.

The return trip to Pretoria and be checked over again, polished he will be shipped to the UK.
