Crossley & Webb had the amazing opportunity of hosting the first Cars & Coffee event by Last Lion Lifestyle for 2017. A great group of people with some spectacular cars taking over the Cape Town roads and the hills coming alive with the sounds of supercars! A beautiful drive with our first pit stop at Grabouw BP garage, with our next stop on the bridge at Theewaterskloof dam. The final drive took us through the spectacular Fraschhoek pass and mountains to end it off at the ideal destination of the Franschhoek Motor Museum. A fun and exciting day had by all. Crossley & Webb look forward to partaking in the next Cars & Coffee and would like to Thank all who joined us and to Cars & Coffee by Last Lion Lifestyle for inviting us to be a part of such a memorable day.
2016 Crossley & Webb Sports & GT champion Dawie Joubert qualified in pole position in his Lotus Exige and took the win in very exciting first race of 2017
The Dodge Viper of Craig Jarvis started race 1 in second place and was chased hard by “Frisco” in his Juno before the Juno spun off at turn 5 and wedged itself on the banking. This brought out the virtual safety car which bunched up the field.
Crossley & Webb attended the Kalk Bay run to support the majestic 1913 Cadillac 30 currently for sale in our showroom. For the first time all competitors were over 100 years old. The competitors were flagged off at the Crankhandle Club in Wynberg, stopped over in Kalk Bay and ended their run at Jubilee Square in Simons Town.
After the launch of Cars & Coffee in Johannesburg, we ended the year in style with an exhibition-style event in Cape Town. Cars & Coffee and Last Lion Lifestyle teamed up for a thrilling end of the year party. Supercars and exotic cars alike gathered at UCT’s upper campus for quite a spectacle. We teamed up with Truth. Coffee Roasting to provide the much-needed coffee for the mornings gathering. It was amazing to be a part of the first Cars and Coffee in Cape Town and we’ll definitely be back for more.
The 2nd Century Classic Car Run was held on 23rd October, 2016. The event was run by the Triumph Sports Car Club, sponsored by Crossley & Webb in association with Century City and Western Province Motor Club.
The event had a century theme running throughout with the total age of the car and driver had to equal or exceed a century (100 years). The number of participants in the event was limited to 100 cars. From the meeting point at Century City, cars had to travel a route of 100 km to the destination at the Killarney race track.
The run was good fun, especially ending it off with a lap around the race track in a classic car. What an experience!
All profits from the event will be donated to the Red Cross Children’s Hospital.
