The 4th annual Festival of Motoring, presented by WesBank, returns to the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit from 22-25 August 2019. 

The Festival of Motoring, organized by Messe Frankfurt, is the only motoring show in Southern Africa endorsed by NAAMSA and supported by local motor manufacturers.

Massive growth

Since its inception in 2016, the Festival of Motoring has shown consistent growth in terms of exhibitor participation and visitor attendees.

2018 saw over 67 000 visitors through the gates, and due to its popularity, an increase from three public show days to four is a testament to that positive growth.

In 2019, show visitors will once again enjoy an interactive showcase of both active and static content including supercars, classic cars and historic and modern motorsport activations. 

Leading industry related aftermarket and accessory companies will also exhibit at the event.

"The Festival of Motoring is not your average motoring event. It’s the only event that brings the entire industry together and allows visitors to not only view or compare the latest models but experience the performance and handling of these vehicles on the track," says Denis Klopper, Festival of Motoring Show Director.

"Our focus will always be to create the best experience for the visitor. As such, and due to the popularity of the track experiences, we have expanded the show to four public days.

Wide range on show

"This means even more track time, allowing motoring brands to get visitors into cars," Klopper added.

OEMs will, as in previous years, have a range of vehicles on display. Show visitors will have the opportunity to self-drive various models on the dedicated Kyalami Handling Track or be professionally driven around the world-class Grand Prix Circuit.

An interactive 4X4 Area will again showcase a large range of off-road vehicles. A key focus of this year’s show will be future technology, a major factor in an evolving industry. The Tech Zone will showcase the future on mobility.
