BREAKFAST RUN: 15 NOVEMBER 2015


The 7th Last Lion Lifestyle event for 2015 kicked off to a great start at the Westin in CT. The organizers Ish Kaskar & Junaid Hamid invited guests to arrive from 9am, however by 8:45 the parking courtyard was already bursting at its seams with CT's finest supercars.


The line-up consisted of the top Italian, German & Japanese marques with Ferrari's dominating the count. Out of the 70 cars that attended, there were 11 Ferrari's, 7 Lamborghini's as well as the rare & famous Liberty Walk Nissan GTR to name but a few.

Due to the size of the event, traffic officials had to assist in coordinating the flow of Supercars out of the Westin and onto the N1 highway to ensure that the group remained together. This 300 million Rands worth of display in motion is something that Cape Town motorists have never witnessed before!


Passengers in cars passing by on the N1 highway looked upon the convoy in amazement! The route took the drivers over the scenic Du Toits Kloof pass - it was a breath-taking site and sound for both bystanders as well as passengers in the convoy going through the pass.


The group was welcomed by Antoinette Steyn (Mayor of Breede Valley) at the Opstal Estate in Slanghoek. The Mayor was aware that the Last Lion Lifestyle team was coming through and she arranged to bring 40 previously disadvantaged youth from her region to the event to witness the display of cars.


As the team arrived, it was apparent by the expressions on the faces of the youth that they couldn't believe their eyes and ears! For many of these youth, the only interaction they have had with supercars are the poster pics on their bedroom walls.


Once the cars were parked, owners had an opportunity to interact with the youth in a relaxed, non-pressurized & welcoming environment. Shani Naidoo, the MD of American Swiss & Sterns provided all the ladies that attended the event with a gift from their recently released Precious Pink CSI collection.

3 larger pieces of the Precious Pink collection was auctioned by Danny Naidoo to the audience with the proceeds being donated to the Reach & Help Foundation to continue doing the great work with the youth in the various communities.


After the auction, the youth were provided with a stomach warming meal courtesy of Last Lion Lifestyle & Velocity Cars. Maurice Page aka Calvin Xavier from Isidingo was flown in by Velocity Cars to give a talk and inspire the youth on the day.


Councillor Junaid Hoosain (DA) started the pilot project to connect the Last Lion Lifestyle Supercar Owners with the Youth to create awareness, motivation & develop an apprenticeship/internship academy at the previous Last Lion Lifestyle event at Killarney raceway and this was the 2nd phase.


The Last Lion Lifestyle crew will be going with councillor to the Overstrand Region for their next event on 27 December 2015 to continue reaching out and inspiring the Youth to follow their dreams.

It was a day that will always be cherished by the supercar owners as well as the community that was visited. The organisers Ish Kaskar & Junaid Hamid would like to thank the brand partners Castrol, American Swiss/ Sterns & Velocity cars for their assistance in creating such a memorable day for all.
