 The Ford EcoSport Challenge EP3

Two Expresso presenters, two cities and a one great big adventure - this is the Ford EcoSport Challenge! Zoe and Ewan will put their driving skills and wits to the test as they solve clues and complete a series of challenges until one is crowned the winner. With a little help from celebrity friends, these urban adventurers have to accumulate points along their journey on a road with plenty of twists and turns. It’s time to #GetBusy as Zoe and Ewan are handed the keys to their Ford EcoSport and discover their first clue ready and waiting. Join them on their adventure as they conquer all!

Last Week’s Eco Challenge ended with Zoe racing into first place with a five point lead, but the game isn’t over yet – can Ewan make a come back? Or will this challenge seal his fate?

Another early morning and a double whammy at their first location – First up: The car challenge: Reverse in a straight line –Ewan and Zoe angled their cars and both completed the challenge with ease! Tying the first part of their day…

Reverse challenge
Ewan jumped out of the car at Manorswood Veterinary Clinic in Johannesburg and Zoe at The Fourways Veterinary Clinic in Sunnydale, Cape Town! Entering the vet, our very own Graeme Richards was waiting for Zoe while Andre Lotters waited for Ewan with their next clues - and Hill’s had made a very kind donation!

Graeme and Zoe decided on TEARS Animal Rescue situated in Kommetjie, Cape Town, where Tracy Gilpin was waiting with two of the rescue dogs up for adoption – The beautiful Edna and Adventurous Columbus!


Ewan and Andre pulled up to Woodrock Animal Rescue Centre situated in Centurion, where Fiona greeted them with two gorgeous rescue dogs that are also up for adoption – The quirky Buddy and gorgeous Chester!



Without missing a beat the duo dropped the seats in the Ford EcoSport to make lots of room for the travelling dogs and they were off to another location where the dogs would be treated to lots of TLC for the day! Safety Tip for transporting dog: Always put the seats down in the back and take off their leads so they can’t get tangled!

Zoe and Graeme chose to spend the day on Kommetjie beach playing, running and just spending some quality time with these deserving animals! Edna and Columbus had the best time playing in the sand, but their day wasn’t over yet – next, they headed over to the dog friendly restaurant, The Red Herring in Noordhoek, where the dogs were showered with love and some fresh, cold water and Zoe and Greame enjoyed the famous, delicious pizzas!

Meanwhile, Ewan and Andre took a short drive out to Johannesburg’s Doggie Heaven – The Walkhaven Dog Park, situated in Zwartskop, where furry friends can play in a picturesque setting, with a dam, lots of space to run and even swim! Buddy and Chester had the best day being with Ewan and Andre and having some fun with other furry friends, before they headed off to The Dog Box Grill on the premises, where they were welcomed with open arms and a fresh bowl of cold water to quench their thirst, while Ewan and Andre gulped down the mouthwatering pizzas at the Pizza Mut area of the restaurant.

Although this one wasn’t too much of a challenge, we decided our duo needed something to make their hearts smile – and they sure did! Sad to see the dogs go back, but hoping that they will find their forever homes, Ewan and Zoe dropped the dogs back at their selfless rescue centers, where they got their next clues…

Scores came in at a tie for this kindness challenge – meaning that Zoe still holds her 5 point lead – but with the promise of a fitness session looming in their next challenge – will superman out strength Zoe? Only time will tell…
