Cape Town - The Killarney Motor Show gets underway at the Killarney International Raceway in Cape Town this Sunday and it promises to be an action packed day, featuring everything from uniquely South African classics to new model introductions and live entertainment, including stunts and music performances.

Among those aforementioned classics are 15 cars that were only ever available in South Africa, including the ultra-rare Protea, GSM Dart and Ford Capri Perana V8.

A number of OEM car brands have confirmed attendance at the show, and will be showing off some brand new models, including Isuzu’s D-Max one-tonner and the yet-to-be-released new-generation Jeep Compass Trailhawk.

There’s also full programme of extreme freestyle motocross, stunt riding by the world-famous Le Riche brothers, passenger rides on the odd and incredible Africa Burn vehicles and even vintage tractors to see.

You could also get a chance to drive the Skid Monster, and literally hundreds of custom and exotic street cars, racing cars, classic cars and motorcycles will be on show.

In between this 60 hectare feast of two, three, four, six and even 18-wheeled automotive entertainment, there will be stalls selling automotive memorabilia, car bling, accessories and scale models, live bands, snake shows, a heritage display featuring military vehicles (including a working Second World War Wehrmacht field kitchen, colloquially known as a ‘goulash cannon’), a fun fair, and no fewer than five food courts offering a huge variety of food and liquid refreshment.

The Killarney Motor Show will be open from 10am to 5pm this Sunday 4 November and entry is R100 for adults and R50 for kids under 16, and free for children under 12 years of age.
