For the first time in its 8-year history, the Jaguar Simola Hillclimb will be broadcast live to fans across the globe for limited periods each day.

This is South Africa’s most spectacular and highly anticipated annual motorsport extravaganza and it kicks into gear in the beautiful coastal town of Knysna from 5 to 7 May.

Fans will be able to join and watch the Live Stream broadcast directly from their smart phone, tablet, laptop, personal computer or even on a smart TV. All that is required is an internet connection.

Six cameras placed at strategic points on track and pre-recorded interviews and inserts will keep viewers abreast of the action each day and prize giving on Friday and Sunday.

King of the Hill takes place on Saturday and Sunday, with the 84-car entry list comprising everything from purpose-built Hillclimb monsters with up to 1 500 hp (over 1 100 kW) on tap to specialised lightweight single-seater race cars, exotic supercars and stunning road cars. The action will be dialled into the red this year as there are three King of the Hill titles and Jody trophies up for grabs across the various categories.

Aside from the cars, fans will be treated to some of South Africa’s most famous drivers gracing this year’s event, along with a strong contingent of international competitors from Inde Motorsports Ranch in the US as one of the many highlights.

Broadcast times are as follows:

Friday 5 May: 13:00 to 16:15

Saturday 6 May: 14:30 to 16:45

Sunday 7 May: 13:30 to 17:15
