Start your engines for the fourth annual Killarney Motor Show, at the Cape town home of motorsport, Killarney International Raceway, on Sunday 27 October.

The organisers are taking the revs up again with close to 1 300 vehicles on show and more than 100 stalls selling just about anything you can think of for your car – and your tummy – with a huge variety of watering holes serving ice-cold drinks, sit-down eats and takeaway vendors.

There’s a new, more accessible layout, an entirely new category of exhibitors and fascinating new displays to delight spectators and keep them at the show all day, from when gates open at 10:00 until the show closes at 17:00, including live music and a funfair in the pits paddock offering exciting rides for children of all ages.

This year’s show will feature no less than four active circuits, starting with the tar oval, where the Cape Hell Drivers will be running a full tar oval racing event at the show.

Next door to that is the arena section; as its name suggests, that’s where you’ll experience non-stop entertainment including stunts, drifting, burnouts, classic motorcycles and even vintage tractor parades and tug-o-war contests.

There will be public karting on the one-kilometre ‘K’ circuit, to give a real taste of how Formula One greats Michael Schumacher, Lewis Hamilton and Ayrton Senna started their racing careers, while the new car dealers have their own dedicated testdrive circuit for the first time, offering testdrives on the latest models all day – including electric cars – another first for the Killarney Motor Show.

Trials expert and Dakar Rally hero, Kobus Potgieter will show how to ride over all sorts of natural obstacles, while international stunt stars, brothers Bruce and Brent le Riche will amaze you with impossible stunts on two wheels, including riding almost four metres straight up the side of a truck!

In addition, the new car dealers will have their own dedicated test drive circuit for the first time, a one-kilometre loop around the bank on Fastron Corner and through the drag-strip paddock, offering test drives on the latest models all day.

The show is open from 10:00 to 17:00 and tickets can be booked at Computicket or paid for at the gate: R100 for adults, R50 for learners under 16 and free if you’re under 12 or on presentation of your membership book if you’re a Western Province Motor Club member.
