It’s not every day that one gets to test drive a Maserati, so I jumped at the chance to experience this first hand, when I got invited to the launch of Tsogo Sun’s Dream Chaser promotion.
A total of R9 million in cash and cars are up for grabs, including three sexy Maserati Ghiblis that could be yours, with the Dream Chaser promotion, taking place at three of Gauteng’s premier entertainment destinations – Gold Reef City, Montecasino and Silverstar Casino.
The Dream Chaser launch started off at Montecasino at 07h30 on a Saturday morning, where a team of journalists, bloggers and celebrities boarded a bus for the Gerotek Testing Facility in Pretoria. This is a world renowned facility for cars and armoured vehicles to test their endurance at high altitudes, and comprises 27 test tracks.
After some snacks and an orientation session, we set off for the wet skid pan track, to see how a Maserati handles this.
Here’s a video:
I have to be honest and say that I chickened out of this one, and opted instead, for the dry oval track.
Here’s a video of me in action in the Maserati GranCabrio, which can reach speeds of 0 to 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds.
I am usually a “Driving Miss Daisy” kind of driver who sticks to the speed limits, so it was really cool to “put foot”, and I got to a top speed of 144km/ hour, which is really fast for this chick. The GrandCabrio can reach a maximum speed of 285km/hour. The experience of driving this convertible sports car, on the oval track (with tilts) was exciting beyond words, so a huge thank you to Maserati and Tsogo Sun for making this all possible.
And a Maserati Ghibli could be yours! Here’s how:
Running until Friday, 31 March 2017, this exhilarating promotion is set to reward three lucky winners with a luxury super car and it’s as easy as playing slots or tables over the promotion period as a Black Rewards cardholder. In true Tsogo Sun style, this promotion promises to deliver a thrilling gaming experience with jaw-dropping cash prizes to be won at draws taking place on the following dates:
