Pass of the Week
From the blazing 45C temperatures in the Northern Cape, we head far south into the very heart of the Baviaanskloof this week to drive the amazing Grasnek Pass. We recently refilmed this long gravel pass, which is questionably the best of the 8 passes in the Baviaanskloof offering some technical driving via its 83 bends, corners and curves. We filmed this 8,3 km long pass over a 4 piece video set in 1080HD with the new GoPro6 stabilised camera and we have hosted it on the Vimeo platform for maximum quality and enjoyment.
If you've never driven the Baviaanskloof, this video set will help you make the decision!
