Car trek boldly goes to South Africa

14th Aug 2013

South Africa's heavenly delights will provide much-needed succour to a team of pub workers as the last of 21 countries on a marathon charity car trek.

Ben Worth, Tony Cole and Steve Hancock will take it in turns to drive a modified old Land Rover called Snoopy 11,000 miles (17,702 km).

This is in a bid to break the world record for the fastest land journey to Cape Town.

South Africa boasts delectable Durban beaches, the magnificent Table Mountain and incredible Kruger National Park.

Tourists on city breaks to Cape Town can enjoy trekking holidays with an increasing emphasis on cycling tourism.

The charitable trio's final destination also offers scenic drives, safaris, beautiful beaches, wonderful wine farms and cultural sites offering over 100 art galleries and a glittering diamond museum.

The three, who work at Admirals Table in Bridgwater, Somerset, aim to raise £10,000 for bibic; a charity which gives practical help to families caring for children with conditions such as autism, cerebral palsy and Down's syndrome.

Their route will see the trio cross high-speed motorways, desert crossings, country tracks and potholed roads.

They aim to drive for 24 hours a day in order to break the 20-year-old overland record of 14 days, 19 hours and 26 minutes.
