Extreme Festival back at Killarney

All the competitors in the hotly-contested ZX-10 Masters Cup ride identical Kawasaki superbikes – winning is down to skill, nerve and who wants it the most.

South Africa’s premier motorsport series, the national championship Extreme Festival, is back at Killarney for the first time in almost a year on Saturday March 5.

There will be races for the G&H Transport Extreme Supercars, GTC & Supa Cup cars, the CompCare Polo Cup, the Gazoo Racing SA Cup, Investchem Formula 1600’s and Formula Ford Kent single-seaters and, for motorcycle fans, the incredibly competitive SunBet ZX-10R Masters Cup.

There will also be a blues/rock concert after the final race of the day. The SA Blues Society ‘Future Flow’ Tour, with high adrenalin rockers Die Horries will join headliners Levinia on stage at the clubhouse.

Take your beach umbrella or gazebo, picnic basket and your cooler box, light up your skottel braai or park next to one of the brick braais. There are outlets all around the facility serving food and ice-cold beverages. Halaal food is available.

All competitors, crew members, officials and spectators are screened on entry, and you must wear a mask covering your nose and mouth, and keep a safety social distancing space of at least 1.5 metres between persons at all times.

Pre-book your spectator tickets via Computicket or pay at the gate – R100 for adults, R40 for pupils under-16 and free for children under 12; Western Province Motor Club members also get in free.
