Not only will the specially designed Grand Prix Masters car be unveiled and be on display at the show, fans will see this car in action during a spectacular street demonstration on Friday 25 March.

The cherry on top is that it will be driven by Formula One World Champion of the 70s, Emerson Fittipaldi, and European F2 Champion and F1 driver, Rene Arnoux.

This is the first time in 13 years that Formula 1 heroes will get behind the wheel of a single seater car on South Africa soil!

There will be several road closures around the Durban Exhibition Centre to serve as the Durban Motor Show "Grand Prix track" for the street demonstration between 12noon and 2pm on Friday 25 March.

The roads affected, only during this period, will be Walnut and Ordanince, Aliwal & Walnut at Old Fort, Aliwal & Walnut at Commercial. Access to the ICC and the Durban Exhibition Centre is off Stanger Street. The Grand Prix Masters series will also be launched at the Durban Motor Show. A great honour as South Africa was selected to host this prestigious inaugural event, the Altech South African Formula 1 Grand Prix Masters, at the Kyalami Grand Prix circuit in November.

The Grand Prix Masters series is a unique event which focuses on driver skill versus vehicle technology. All cars in the series have been manufactured to exactly the same specifications and will have the world's biggest names in Formula 1 involved.

The drivers participating in the series are all previous Formula 1 heroes, winners and world champions, who are sure to compete fiercely for the coveted cash prize.
