The Festival of Motoring takes place from August 31 – September 2 at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit.

The time has arrived for the gates to open at South Africa’s third Festival of Motoring at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit in Midrand. The following three days, from Friday to Sunday, will be packed with action.

There will be something for everybody in the family at what will, arguably, be the biggest motoring extravaganza to be held in South Africa.

More than 30 vehicle brands will be represented and there will be 200 cars on the track as well as scores more on display and being used in other activations. This will include show visitors being able to drive cars on Kyalami’s 1.1km handling track.

There will even be national championship races for GTC touring cars and Formula 1600 single-seaters to appeal to the “petrolheads”.

A major aspect of today’s motor vehicles is the technology incorporated in all cars, bakkies and SUVs, from the humblest to the most expensive. The pace of technological advances is absolutely amazing and there will be plenty of opportunities for show visitors to learn more about these latest technologies and how the normal driver can benefit from them.
