In May 2012 a group of friends joined me on the Blacktop Rally adventure. We drove 3,500 kms in a BMW M3 (massive thanks to BMW South Africa) over 6 days, covering some of the most amazing blacktop in South Africa. Most of it was on back roads, exploring different towns and areas. Every now and then we were allowed onto a race track for some insanity but mostly it was cruising and exploring South Africa.
We started in Pretoria, visited Clarens, Bloemfontein, East London, Port Elizabeth, Knysna and finally ended in Cape Town. It was incredible!
We survived the Blacktop Rally 2012: this is our story. If you ever get the chance to do the rally, grab it with both hands. Check out www.blacktoprally.co.za
