South African motor sport legend Sarel van der Merwe recently visited FMM along with fellow racers Etienne van der Linde and Johan Fourie for filming with Doreen Morris for an Afrikaans TV programme Driekuns. The trio were interviewed about their careers, and the show will be aired in December. While at FMM, Sarel took an opportunity to drive the museum’s Chevrolet Camaro.

In November, Sarel was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award for his achievements in motor sport by the South African Guild of Motoring Journalists at the annual Motoring Journalist of the Year awards dinner. WH
