Since the introduction of the name Spring Fest in 2015, the name caused disturbances for many car owners’ pockets as this resulted in the aftermarket shop shipping off new equipment, ready to be added, with the goal of first place in mind. On Saturday, 22 September, Spring Fest returned to the car scene after a two year hibernation.
The Goodwood rugby sports field was filled with all sorts of cars ranging from the German spec vehicles, Japanese DOHC tuners, and even some American muscles. Whether you wished to see an Opel with a flexible boot lid due to the bass kicking action, a burned G6 finished off with air and complete boot display wrapped in an orange coating or a Burgundy Prelude with a dual air-static setup – all were to be found in one on the single location.
Esther Steens and Brendan November from Clanwilliam also took the drive down to Cape Town to attend this well known event with only one thing on their mind, bring back a few trophies. And they didn’t disappoint, Brendan brought home first place in the “Best Paint” category while Esther took first place for “Best Female Ride” and also came in second for “Best Show & Shine”.
They also entered their one year old daughter’s toy car into the “Grassroot – Toddler” category and Norah brought her very first trophy home to Clanwilliam, following in her parents footsteps at a very young age.
They will be attending the West Coast Show & Shine next in Vredendal on 6 October at the sportsgrounds and once again hope to bring back a few prizes.
