The Event

Spookhill is a section of Parel Valley Road in Somerset West, where, if you switch your car off it appears to run up the hill instead of moving downhill. It has generated much discussion as to whether this apparent phenomenon is an optical illusion due to magnetism, or just one of the world's great unsolved mysteries!

Join us for a fun day out on the road!
