They put Mandla and Cwenga in two separate security cars. While the public waited for the relaxation to begin, the safety cars burned out as they approached the start line.

Cwenga had no idea what was going on as she had been told that Mandla had asked the couple to experience the thrill of the track in a safety car.

For her, it was the experience of a lifetime. She had no idea that something bigger was brewing at the start line.

“I was totally blown away and it was a huge surprise,” she said.

The guests were finally told that there was something wrong with the car and they needed to get out.

That’s when Mandla brought Cwenga to the starting line and knelt down to ask the all-important question – to which she thankfully said yes. It was followed by pink smoke grenades, after which the newly engaged couple returned to the vehicles to explore the course.
