Ferrari Huguenot Tunnel Run
Johannesburg, 14 October 2013: Viglietti Motors, importers of Ferrari vehicles into Southern Africa, today aided in making music in the mountains of the Western Cape as the Southern Equatorial Ferrari Automobili Club (SEFAC) embarked on a Tunnel Run as part of their road trip from Johannesburg to Cape Town.
The Tunnel Run, which took place in the Huguenot Tunnel which runs through the Du Toitskloof mountains in the Western Cape, had been specially organised to enable the club’s members to fully enjoy the aural delights that their various Ferrari models offer, from the wail of the latest F12berlinetta’s V12 to the shrieking V8 of the Ferrari 355 of the late 1990s.
Viglietti Motors CEO Mervyn Eagles, comments: “We all know how spine-chilling it can be to hear a supercar’s engine bellowing in a tunnel and it gave us great pleasure today to have given SEFAC members the chance to exploit the sound of valves and throttles in a safe environment.”
A relaxing lunch at the Allee Bleue Wine Farm near Franschhoek rounded off the exciting day’s driving activities.
