The fourth annual Festival of Motoring returns to the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit in August. Organisers have confirmed the dates and petrolheads should mark their calendars – The Festival of Motoring will run from Thursday, 22 to Sunday, 25 August 2019.
The festival will showcase anything and everything to do with motoring. New vehicle launches, aftermarket components, demonstrations and car shows – if you love motoring then this event will be a highlight in your year. Peruse the exhibition stands or strap yourself into the passenger seat of a track car; there is plenty to do and see at this year’s Festival of Motoring.
Attendees will get to experience a fully-interactive showcase of vehicles, ranging from classic and vintage to 4×4 and supercars. They will be able to experience the handling and performance of these vehicles on the track – South Africa’s only Grand Prix circuit. Visitors can also expect to interact and engage with 120 industry leaders and automotive companies operating in the domestic and foreign markets.
Test your driving skills on the skid pan or custom 4×4 track, or if you prefer to take things easy, try your hand at one of the high-tech simulators or watch the race cars zoom around the track. Take a stroll through the pit area where 70 garages will be open and available for the track racers and supercars.
Festival of Motoring is for automotive enthusiasts
“We encourage all motoring enthusiasts, especially those seeking to experience the thrill of the various cars first hand, to make their way to the annual event. The festival offers consumers an opportunity to see, touch, smell and interact closely with the cars of their dreams,” says WesBank chief executive officer Chris de Kock. WesBank is the Festival of Motoring’s long-standing partner.
The event is perfectly suited to families too, with a kids’ zone that boasts a load of fun activities for your little ones. Hang out at the braai area and enjoy a tasty snack while you chat to other petrolheads about anything to do with motoring.
The Festival of Motoring is also South Africa’s largest industry-supported automotive show, with backing from industry stakeholders such as NAAMSA. If you’re in the market for a new or used vehicle, then this event will have all the options under one roof. Around 30 vehicle brands will be showcasing their models to keen buyers.
