Women On Wheels: A Day Out With Chevrolet

Chevrolet invites you to join the team and enjoy the ultimate road experience in their brand-new Trailblazer and Sonic RS in Cape Town and Joburg. THE CAPE TOWN TRAIL Date: 2 August 2014 Destination: Cape Town In the past, 4x4 off-road trips were usually aimed at the guys – bad luck for girls who also longed to get out there and experience a great South African motoring adventure at the wheel of a car that can go anywhere. But Chevrolet heard our call and is offering WOW readers a fabulous adrenaline-filled day of off-road driving, far from city crowds and tarred roads. THE 4X4 EXPERIENCE You’ll start this amazing day at the V&A Hotel in Cape Town before setting off in a Chevrolet Sonic RS for a leisurely drive through the glorious Cape countryside to the spectacular winelands. When you arrive at Zevenwacht Wine Estate, things start to heat up.
