Roadshow in Zambia and Tanzania
Now we have it in black and white! Finally, we received the official certificate for setting a new world record for driving from Nordkapp, Norway, to Cape Agulhas, the Southernmost tip of Africa in 21 days, 16 hours, 39 minutes and 12 seconds. The certificate was made by TÜV Nord and signed by Michael Kirn, the head of the company's office in Cape Town. However, without the accident and the stop for repair in Dar Es Salaam it would have been 8 days and 10 hours.
In South Africa we stopped at the German embassy in Pretoria, where we were lucky enough to be part of a big event. All embassies were represented and joined us there. The Touareg was a real attraction and everyone was really interested in our project.
After leaving South Africa, our first stop was Lusaka. In the Zambian capital, we visited the German embassy - it was great to meet everyone, who supported us actively for the whole Touareg CapetoCape project. It's really good to drive through all countries again now, having some more time to visit everyone who was so supportive. Also we stopped for another Charity project - more about that in a few days.
On Tuesday we had a press conference in Dar Es Salaam, at CFAO Motors' Showroom, where we had stopped and repaired the Touareg during our world record drive in October. Wayne McIntosh, the head of the office, was a great host again, the event was well-attended and we had a great day. Now, we are on our way to Sudan.
Keep up with us!
