The end of MyBEER (the app)...

Johann:
Thank you it was an awesome day! We enjoyed the go carts as well.

Jeanine:
I had a wonderful time! From organisation of the event, to the driving instructors, especially Gina who was awesome, to everything I learnt, I really had fun. The MINI was such a sexy little car to drive, and I am happy that I had the opportunity to do so as I have never driven a MINI before! It is definitely on my list for…
