Unfortunately, due to storm weather with high winds and heavy rain forecast for this weekend and the resulting concerns regarding safety, the 2019 Killarney Motor Show powered by Kfm 94.5 has been moved to Sunday 8 December.
We have been monitoring the weather predictions in the hope that it would improve but this morning the local SA Weather Bureau confirmed strong adverse weather conditions.
For all those who have already bought tickets to the show, their tickets remain valid for the new date, and the exciting program remains largely unchanged – except for a few additional special attractions we are working on!
For everybody who has registered to display their cars and motorcycles, their registrations will also remain valid for Sunday 8 December. Registrations will also remain open for those who would like to join us to display their VIV (Very Important Vehicle) on the new date.
For the fourth annual Killarney Motor Show – the biggest, most hands-on motor show in the Western Cape – 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.
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 Killarney International Raceway during the show – at no extra cost.
Next door to that is the Extreme Arena; as its name suggests, that’s where you’ll experience non-stop entertainment including stunts, drifting, burnouts, passenger rides in E36 Cup racing cars and parades of classic motorcycle and vintage tractors.
There will be public karting on the ‘K’ circuit, and trials expert and 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.
In addition, 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.
The Adventure City area 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 Cape Multi-MotorClub brings together hundreds of exotics bearing names such as Porsche, Jaguar and Alfa Romeo in the paddock behind the Clubhouse.
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.
Nearly all the vehicles on display, old and new, arrive on their own wheels, the stunts are genuine, the racing on the Tar Oval is for real. That’s what the Killarney Motor Show is all about: it’s all for real – and you’re invited!
