A sneak pre­view

If you’ve read the re­port on the Toy­ota Land Cruiser 6×6 on the cover of this mag­a­zine, you’d know that it prom­ises to be the belle of the ball at The South African 4×4 & Out­door Show at Zwartkops Race­way, on 26/27 Au­gust.

But there will be much more to ex­pe­ri­ence than just the Cruiser 6×6. In the out­door and ad­ven­ture ac­ces­sories seg­ment you’ll find, among other things, fish­ing rods, camp­ing and hik­ing gear. There will be a plethora of food stalls, ca­ter­ing for a va­ri­ety of tastes.

New this year is a craft beer fes­ti­val, with a se­lect group of craft beer brew­eries in at­ten­dance. From an en­ter­tain­ment point of view, the show will be rock­ing, too. There will be rock crawler com­pe­ti­tion, a 4×4 driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, an air ri­fle range, paint­ball games, monster truck shows, com­pe­ti­tions, en­ter­tain­ment for the kids, live mu­sic shows, a camel race, and much more.

A num­ber of 4×4 ac­ces­sory com­pa­nies will be in at­ten­dance, show­ing off some of their coolest hand­i­work and projects. Also on the menu are a full range of boats and jet skis, car­a­vans and trail­ers, bikes and quads, as well as all the lat­est and great­est 4×4s and SUVs.

A unique at­trac­tion at the show is the fact that vis­i­tors with a valid driv­ing li­cence can take those lat­est and great­est 4×4s and SUVs for a spin around Zwartkops’ kart­ing track, with an in­struc­tor in the pas­sen­ger seat. So in­stead of just kick­ing tyres, you can ac­tu­ally drive the ve­hi­cle you are in­ter­ested in.

En­trance is R150 for adults and R50 for chil­dren. Show times are 8am to 5pm on the Satur­day, and 8am to 3pm on the Sun­day. The GPS way­points for Zwartkops Race­way are: S25 811161/ E28 11483.
