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. There’s also live music and a fun fair in the pits paddock offering exciting rides for children of all ages.
This year’s show will feature four active circuits. The new car dealers will 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.
There will be public karting, to give you a real taste of how Formula One greats Michael Schumacher, Lewis Hamilton and Ayrton Senna started their racing careers. And there will also be an arena section dedicated to non-stop entertainment, featuring stunts, drifting, burnouts, classic motorcycles and even vintage tractor parades and tug-o-war contests.
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 – we’ve seen it before and we still don’t know how they do it!
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.
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.
Nearly all the vehicles on display, old and new, arrive on their own wheels. You can drive many of the new models on display yourself, on the new ‘dealer test circuit’, the stunts and the racing are genuine. That’s what the Killarney Motor Show is all about: It’s for real – and you’re invited!
