KILLARNEY MOTOR SHOW TAKES MOTORSPORT EXCITEMENT TO THE NEXT LEVEL

The 2019 Killarney Motor Show revs up the excitement meter to the red line with confirmation that the Cape Hell Drivers will be running a full Tar Oval Racing event at Killarney International Raceway during the show on Sunday 8 December.

You’ll get to see them at no extra cost at the biggest, most hands-on motor show in the Western Cape, open from 10:00am to 5:00pm – book at Computicket or pay at the gate, both events for R100 for adults, R50 for scholars 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.

This year’s show will feature no less than four active circuits, starting with the Tar Oval, where the ‘Stockies’ will be in action all day. 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 motorcycle and even vintage tractor parades and tug-o-war contests.

There will be public karting on the one-kilometre ‘K’ circuit, to give you 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 test drive circuit for the first time, offering test drives on the latest models all day – including electric cars, another first for the Killarney Motor Show.

Dakar Rally hero Kobus Potgieter will be running a round of the Western Cape Foot-Up Trials championship over all sorts of natural obstacles on the back straight, while international stunt stars the Le Riche brothers will amaze you with impossible stunts on two wheels, including riding almost four metres straight up the side of a truck!

All of this in a new, more accessible layout that includes an entirely new category of exhibitors and fascinating new displays, live music and a fun fair in the pits paddock offering exciting rides for children of all ages 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 eateries and takeaway vendors.

But it’s really all about the cars, trucks and motorcycles, with close to 1300 vehicles on show, including new models not seen before in the Western Cape (some of which you’ll actually get the chance to drive on the Test Circuit), classic and exotic cars bearing names such as Porsche, Jaguar and Alfa Romeo from 1902 to the 1980s, and powerful racing cars and bikes.

The Streetcar Show on the Porsche Club Straight will feature cars of all types and sizes, customised inside and out and modified as only the Mother City’s petrolheads can do it, into ‘hot rods’, ‘stance cars’ lowered to within centimetres of the road, and American-style muscle-cars.

The entire sweep of Kfm Corner is dedicated to lovingly restored classic motorcycles from the 1960s to the 1990s, with dealers’ stands displaying the latest models and incredible custom machinery from the finest workshops in the Western Cape in the pits paddock.

The Adventure City concept goes (literally) wild this year with a comprehensive display of off-road machinery on two and four wheels, off-road trailers, camping gear, tents and accessories – everything you need for your next safari.

That’s what the Killarney Motor Show is all about: It’s for real – and you’re invited!

MOTOR SHOW 2019 IS UP AND RUNNING – AND YOU’RE INVITED TO DISPLAY!

Registration to display your classic, exotic or custom car (or motorcycle!) at the 2019 Killarney Motor Show on Sunday 8 December is now open on our freshly updated website.

If you’re a member of one of the clubs belonging to the Cape Multi-Motor Club Secretariat it’s free; you just add your vehicle to their online list on the registrations page of this website, so we know how much space to allocate for your club.

Even if you’re not a Cape Multi-Motor Club Secretariat member, it will cost you just R50 to book your spot and show off your pride and joy at the biggest motor show in the Western Cape; that R50 registration fee also gets you and one other person into the show. Entry for visitors to the show is R100 for adults, R50 for scholars under 16 and free for children under 12, or on presentation of your membership book if you’re a Western Province Motor Club member, so you could save as much as R150.

The only requirement is that your car or bike should be there before 9:00am on the day and stay there until the show closes at 5:00pm – and we have plenty for you to see and experience, to keep you entertained all day.

There’s a new, more accessible layout, an entirely new category of exhibitors and fascinating new displays, with close to 1300 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 eateries and takeaway vendors.

Pride of place on the main straight, however, goes to the Streetcar Show, featuring cars of all types and sizes, customised inside and out and modified as only the Mother City’s petrolheads can do it, into ‘hot rods’, ‘stance cars’ lowered to within centimetres of the road and American-style muscle-cars.

The Crankhandle Club will display a magnificent collection of classic cars from 1902 (no, we’re not kidding) to the 1970s in the covered pits, while the Cape Multi-MotorClub Secretariate brings together hundreds of exotics bearing names such as Porsche, Jaguar and Alfa Romeo in the paddock behind the Clubhouse.

KILLARNEY HOSTS THE BIGGEST MOTOR SHOW IN THE WESTERN CAPE

Ladies and Gentlemen, start your engines! – For the 2019 Killarney Motor Show powered by Kfm 94.5 at the home of motorsport in the Western Cape on Sunday 8 December.

The biggest motor show in the Western Cape will be open to the public from 10:00am to 5:00pm; entry is R100 for adults, R40 for scholars under 16 and free for children under 12, or on presentation of your membership book if you’re a Western Province Motor Club member.

It is perhaps the most evocative of its kind in the Western Cape, bringing together as it does the exquisite craftsmanship of the vehicles of the past, the sleek automotive offerings of the early 21st century and the unlimited ways they can be customised to reflect their owners’ personality, as well as a glimpse into the future of motoring.

For the fourth annual Killarney Motor Show we are taking the revs up again with close to 1300 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 eateries 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 “Gates open” at 10:00am until the show closes at 5:00pm, including live music and a fun fair in the pits paddock offering exciting rides for children of all ages.

For the first time, there will four active circuits; the ‘Half Main’ circuit from the exit of the Kink to Rose Sweep and back to Kfm Corner, will be dedicated to non-stop entertainment, featuring passenger races with (very brave!) members of the public sitting alongside professional drivers during actual races, stunting, drifting, burnouts, a classic motorcycle parade and even vintage tractor parades and tug-o-war contests.

Trials expert and Dakar Rally hero Kobus Potgieter will show us how to ride over all sorts of natural obstacles, while international stunt stars the Le Riche brothers will amaze you with impossible stunts on two wheels, including riding almost four metres straight up the side of a truck – we’ve seen it before and we still don’t know how they do it!

In addition, the new car dealers will have their own dedicated test drive circuit for the first time, a one-kilometre loop around the banking on Fastron Corner and through the drag-strip paddock, offering test drives on the latest models all day – including electric cars, another first for the Killarney Motor Show.

Despite the popular perception among hard-core petrolheads that electric cars aren’t exciting to drive, don’t knock them until you’ve tried one – you’re in for a pleasant surprise!

There will also be public karting on the newly resurfaced “K” circuit, a demanding layout featuring 14 turns in just one kilometre, to give you a real taste of how Formula One greats Michael Schumacher, Lewis Hamilton and Ayrton Senna started their racing careers.

After dipping a toe into the water in 2018 with an area devoted to dual-purpose biking, the Adventure City concept goes (literally) wild this year with a comprehensive display of off-road machinery on two and four wheels, off-road trailers, camping gear, tents and accessories – everything you need for your next safari.

The static displays at the 2019 Killarney Motor Show will encompass some one thousand vehicles, ranging from classic, custom and brand-new motorcycles to massive eighteen-wheeler trucks.

Pride of place on the main straight, however, goes to the Streetcar Show, featuring cars of all types and sizes, customised inside and out and modified as only the Mother City’s petrolheads can do it, into ‘hot rods’, ‘stance cars’ lowered to within centimetres of the road and American-style muscle-cars.

The Crankhandle Club will display a magnificent collection of classic cars from 1902 (no, we’re not kidding) to the 1970s in the covered pits, while the Cape Multi-MotorClub brings together hundreds of exotics bearing names such as Porsche, Jaguar and Alfa Romeo in the paddock behind the Clubhouse

You’ll also see restored family cars that you can point out to your children, saying, “My grandfather had one of those” – because nothing teaches automotive history to the next generation of petrolheads like getting up close and personal with historic vehicles, taking in their gleaming chrome and the smell of leather polish.

The entire sweep of Kfm Corner is dedicated to lovingly restored classic motorcycles from the 1950s to the 1980s, with dealers’ stands displaying the latest models and incredible custom machinery from the finest workshops in the Western Cape in the pits paddock.

And that’s what the Killarney Motor Show is all about: it’s all for real. Nearly all the vehicles on display, old and new, arrive on their own wheels, the stunts are genuine, the racing on the Half-Main circuit is for real.

You can drive many of the new models on display yourself, on the new ‘dealer test circuit’, marvel at the sheer size of the trucks that populate our national roads (all the trucks on display are working vehicles). The one thing you won’t find at the Killarney Motor Show is anything virtual or simulated.
