The Langebaan Community Policing Forum held its inaugural ‘Hot on Tar’ Wheel and Leisure Show at the grounds of the Curro School in Langebaan on Sunday 2 November. The show was organised by Paige Lindenberg and her well-known car and powerboat racing father Peter and FMM supported the new show by sending up its 1930 Marquette to put on display, which proved to be one of the show stoppers on the day. Other supporters included the West Coast Classic Car Club and the Cobra and Lotus marque clubs.

Around 100 cars and motorcycles were exhibited. It was an excellent day’s entertainment and the event’s informal layout reminded me of the early years of the now well-established Cars in the Park and Hermanus Whales and Wheels shows. There was no parking stress, no dust and the convivial atmosphere lent itself to chatting to fellow exhibitors and spectators. Certainly, FMM made a couple of new friends during the day’s proceedings, and all funds raised are being donated to projects in the community. WH
