A team of nine MG sports cars from Australia, one from England and one from South Africa will arrive in Nairobi from Cape Town tomorrow (September 28th) at the Panafric Hotel at 3.30 p.m.

The cavalcade left Cape Town on September 9th for a leisurely 8,770 kilometre drive to Nairobi.

This team will be in Kenya for the CBA Africa Concours d’Elegance. This prestigious event will be the 42nd in the annual series organised by the Alfa Romeo Owners Club and is scheduled for Sunday (September 30th) at the Nairobi Racecourse from 9.00a.m.

This MG motoring adventure was organised by Dave Godwin who was a member of the African Odyssey in 2008. This was a cavalcade of classic car enthusiasts from South Africa who drove to Nairobi to contest the Concours.

On hearing about David Godwin’s plan British MG enthusiast Nigel Fowler decided to join the cavalcade and shipped his 1979 MG BGT to Cape Town. South African sports car owner Michael Brett added his 1957 MGA to the convoy.

On Saturday (September 29th) the team will spent the morning in the workshop of the Ford division of CMC, Lusaka Road. This will be a good opportunity for photo shoots and one on one interviews.

The travel stained MG sports cars will be serviced, cleaned and polished in readiness for judging on Sunday (September 30th) in the classiest event on the Kenya motor sport calendar.
