Defender owners rally together in the Mother City for commemorative convoy


On South Africa’s public holiday, Reconciliation Day (16 December), a group of very special vehicle owners rallied together to celebrate their vehicle’s heritage and to commemorate the final few months of the Land Rover Defender before it ceases production mid-2016.

On the morning of the Last Ride of the Defender event, the Mother City of Cape Town was buzzing with activity. With beautiful, clear skies overhead, it was a pearler of a day and great for Defender and Series owners looking to take a drive around the scenic city.

In between the Must Fall-hashtags and ‘Arch Marches’ (Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu) happening on the same day, a group of 75 to 80 Defender and Series owners met in Green Point at 09h00 in the morning. The convoy gently made their way along the scenic coastal route and passing quaint towns like Bantry Bay, Camps Bay and Hout Bay before turning towards Durbanville’s Meerendal Wine Estate where the event concluded.
