Festival to excite

2019-05-07 06:01

There’s a full day’s entertainment lined up for the whole family at the GTC Extreme Festival sponsored by Wingfield Motors at Killarney International Raceway on Saturday 11 May.

Headlining the musical action is B-Minor, fresh from a string of successful performances at the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees (KKNK).

Before his performance, there’s a unique opportunity to get within arm’s length of a real modern-era Formula 1 car on the Red Bull stand.

You can also try your F1 racing skills on one of two TGN simulators – and the driver who sets the fastest lap time on the day will win two VIP tickets for the Formula 1 Experience at the Red Bull Circuit in downtown Cape Town on Sunday 2 June.

Lots to do

The clubhouse area has a festival of its own, with a mini-market of car displays, takeaways and memorabilia vendors on the front lawn, ice-cold drinks in the beer garden, a supervised children’s play area and nursery room for infants’ refuelling and nappy changing, and extreme entertainment such as bumper cars, dart soccer, wipe out sweeper, an inflatable rodeo ride and even a snake show.

There’s fine food in the Trackside Pub and Grill upstairs, as well as light meals and cold drinks at the New Pits Lounge directly over the GTC and Polo Cup pits. The balcony of the Trackside Pub and Grill, as well as the New Pits Lounge, also have TV screens showing live timing as well as coverage of all the action from cameras around the entire circuit.

You can unleash your inner Lewis Hamilton in a powerful kart on the “K” circuit, while children enjoy pedal-powered karting, under supervision, on their own section of the circuit.

All this will be taking place, in addition to a full programme of national championship racing featuring the best of South African motorsport, including Global Touring Cars, Falken Polo Cup, Formula 1600s, Formula Vees, 1000cc and 600cc Superbikes, and Sports & GT Cars.

There’s more music at the Fan Walk on the circuit itself at lunchtime. Step down from the grandstands onto the track for a live performance by local rocker Jay Jay, while you check out the cars and motorcycles of the SA Championship Global Touring Cars, the Falken Polo Cup cars and the incredible 200 horsepower superbikes.

More than that, you get to meet the drivers and, unlike The Stig, see what they look like without their crash helmets.

V The gates open at 06:30 and racing begins at 10:00. Book at Computicket or pay at the gate: Adults R100, scholars under 16 R40 and children under 12 free.
