Jaguar Si­mola Hill­climb read­ies for the fans

The Witness - Wheels - - RACING - — WR.

THE or­gan­is­ers of the Si­mola Hill­climb in Knysna have re­leased ticket prices for what they billed “the most an­tic­i­pated and ex­cit­ing event” on the South African motorsport cal­en­dar.

Hy­per­bole aside, KZN cer­tainly has a lot of in­ter­est in the race, thanks to Mar­burg’s Dezzi Gutzeit hav­ing shown him­self the fastest driver up the hill af­ter his spec­tac­u­lar win last year.

The Hill­climb takes place from May 6 to 8 in Knysna, with plenty of en­ter­tain­ment for the whole fam­ily.

More than 60 cars will be con­test­ing Clas­sic Car Fri­day, with 84 en­tries for King of the Hill and the all-new Su­per­Car Shootout, which takes place on Satur­day and Sun­day — mak­ing it the “must-at­tend” for any motoring or motorsport en­thu­si­ast.

Gen­eral en­try and pit tick­ets for this year’s sev­enth run­ning of the Hill­climb are avail­able in ad­vance through www.iTick­ets.co.za — a con­ve­nient on­line por­tal to pur­chase and ob­tain all your tick­ets for this event.

Once paid for, cus­tomers can print their bar-coded ticket di­rectly at home. Tick­ets will also be avail­able at the gates dur­ing the week­end.

Fans can buy a two-day pass for the King of the Hill ac­tion on Satur­day and Sun­day, priced at R140 per adult and R80 per child. Sin­gle en­try tick­ets are a tad pricey at R80 per per­son. Chil­dren un­der 12 en­joy free en­try on Fri­day, with a cost of R50 for chil­dren be­tween the ages of three and 11 for each of the re­main­ing days. A lim­ited num­ber of pit ac­cess tick­ets, which in­clude gen­eral en­try, cost R180 for adults or R150 for chil­dren for sin­gle-day passes, or R320 and R250 re­spec­tively for the two-day passes.

A shut­tle op­er­ates from the Knysna Wa­ter­front to the Jaguar Si­mola Hill­climb through­out all three days.
