Royal Senchi Hotel in Akosombo and Gold Coast Classic Cars Club have again showcased the ‘Year of Return Edition’ of its annual Classics Car Show.
The event saw a luxurious line-up array of vintage and future classic cars. On display were cars such as the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG, Mercedes CL 65 AMG V12, a fully restored 1966 Jaguar E type and numerous other classics, vintage and antique cars.
In opening the event, Hon. Barbara Oteng Gyasi (MP), the Minister for Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, lauded the Royal Senchi Hotel and Resort for putting a brilliant spot on Ghana with its unique events.
“…..today, it is exciting to also participate in another significant event of the year of Return, that is the Classic Car Show…this is what we expect of those who invest in this country, that they should put a positive light on Ghana, that they show what we stand for, that they demonstrate what Africa is all about in order to contribute to changing the narrative about Africa. We have a lot of good things in Africa particularly in Ghana and we need to show it to the world. Thank you for supporting us to do this effectively at the Royal Senchi Hotel,” she said during the event that was held in the latter part of December 2019.
According to Gerard Shraven, the General Manager of Royal Senchi Hotel, “It’s an event that’s gaining momentum year after year and we are seeing more interest coming from the public especially those who are classic car lovers. Our association with the Gold Coast Classic Cars Club is proving to be very beneficial to Royal Senchi and we thank them for their support…”
In the show which makes evident the need to keep to a culture of maintenance, Orlando Baeta, the first Vice President of the Gold Coast Classic Cars Club told Whatsup News that the event is a form of ‘Sankofa’ which emphasises the culture of maintenance “Classic Cars are out of the ordinary and Sankofa really means go back and take. To go back and take means to keep the stuff in a good condition” he said
