Who says bud­get and grandeur has noth­ing in com­mon…

IT IS A CAR­NI­VAL OF SPEED, REVERBERATIONS AND AN AP­PRE­CI­A­TION OF POLISHED LINES. IT IS A CEL­E­BRA­TION OF ALL THINGS MO­TOR­ING. IT’S THE FES­TI­VAL OF MO­TOR­ING, AND IT PROM­ISES TO BE BIG­GER AND MORE SPEC­TAC­U­LAR THAN EVER BE­FORE WHEN IT MAKES ITS RE­TURN TO THE COR­NERS OF THE KYALAMI GRAND PRIX CIR­CUIT NEXT MONTH.

The lat­est it­er­a­tion of SA’s only in­dus­try-sup­ported mo­tor­ing ex­traor­di­naire will take place from 31 Au­gust to 2 Septem­ber 2018 as it looks to sur­pass last year’s show that at­tracted 57,000 vis­i­tors.

This year, though, the or­gan­is­ers are not just look­ing to raise the roof with big­ger num­bers, but also to of­fer an even big­ger plethora of in­ter­ac­tive mo­tor­ing en­ter­tain­ment. This will in­clude new life­style, ed­u­ca­tion and fam­ily-friendly ac­tiv­i­ties that will all pro­vide a more im­mer­sive mo­tor­ing ex­pe­ri­ence than ever be­fore.

WHAT’S HOT IN 2018

With more au­to­mo­tive brands al­ready con­firmed, vis­i­tors can again ex­pect new car launches, self-drive op­tions, supercars blast­ing around the track as well as the en­ter­tain­ing 4x4 area where brave ad­ven­tur­ers show their true off-road met­tle.

A re­newed fo­cus on in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ences means that self-drive ac­tiv­i­ties will now be avail­able all day, ev­ery day at the cen­tral han­dling track as well as the off-road course.

There are even some ex­cit­ing ad­di­tions to look for­ward to this year with dou­ble the num­ber of pit doors, a wine gar­den, plane

“OR­GAN­IS­ERS ARE NOT JUST LOOK­ING TO RAISE THE ROOF WITH BIG­GER NUM­BERS, BUT ALSO TO OF­FER AN EVEN BIG­GER PLETHORA OF IN­TER­AC­TIVE MO­TOR­ING EN­TER­TAIN­MENT”

fly­overs, rac­ing ac­tion on the track and a fo­cus on edu­tain­ment.

In­dus­try thought-lead­ers will par­tic­i­pate in the daily Tech Talks where all the lat­est trends, tech­nolo­gies, and in­dus­try im­prove­ments will also be dis­cussed.

There’s even a draw card for au­to­mo­tive his­tory boffins, col­lec­tors, and ad­mir­ers of clas­sic cars who are likely to ap­pre­ci­ate the unique story each of these metic­u­lously looked-af­ter cars can tell.

There’s some­thing for ev­ery­one; from mo­tor­ing fa­nat­ics to fam­i­lies look­ing for a fun day out, there’s a mo­tor­ing ex­pe­ri­ence wait­ing for you.
