The 2019 Thunderball Run is a 1 000-mile road trip from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth spanning four days and including 52 supercars and muscle cars. And CAR magazine is the official media partner.
The journey – which will take place from 15 to 19 October – is not simply a case of driving from point A to point B. Instead, it’s all about enjoying the road trip in your cherished car with fellow motoring enthusiasts. In addition, entrants will visit historical sites and towns plus points of interest where they will be awarded Thunderball chips for completing exciting challenges by making use of clues that are provided to them.
The trip includes four nights of luxury accommodation for you and a partner. Breakfast is included, with a tailored three-course dinner also served after each day of exhilarating driving fun.
During the picturesque commute, “Checkered Flag” parties, which include live entertainment, will be provided at each pitstop. The grand finale “Checkered Flag” party, where top DJs and bands will serve up live entertainment, will take place at a gala dinner. Here, prizes will be awarded.
The combined prize money tallies up to R70 000, with first prize being R25 000, second prize R20 000 and third- and fourth places receiving R15 000 and R10 000, respectively.
The entry fee of R50 000 further includes a support crew, accompanying drivers and their partners on the road trip and a private security company to ensure the entrants’ vehicles are kept safe. A personalised concierge service, car-cleaning team and embroidered rally pit shirts are included, too.
