CAR CLUBSMGA Club
In true Castrol fashion, EDGE got involved in the 50th anniversary of the South African MGA Car Club. At the Castrol EDGE African Adventure 2005, 100 members in 50 cars celebrated the anniversary by traveling 4000km across South Africa, stopping by small towns and having a great time. Not forgetting the under-privileged, all the money raised from the MGA anniversary drive was donated to an under-resourced school. For details, visit www.mgcc.co.za
