Motor show returns bigger and better

Car enthusiasts can enjoy a garden party on wheels at the Killarney Motor Show.

After an enforced absence of two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Killarney Motor Show is back on Sunday October 30, from 10am to 5pm.

There will be non-stop entertainment for the whole family, with more than 2000 displays, vendors and interactive experiences.

The fifth edition of the show also celebrates the 75th anniversary of motorsport at Killarney – the cars and motorcycles that have raced there through the years and the band of motorsport and car culture enthusiasts who have, over the years, created a world-class facility on what was, in 1947, a dusty, forgotten piece of wasteland alongside the old road to Malmesbury.

The exquisite craftsmanship of the cars and motorcycles 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 in the Show ‘n Shine and Stance section, as well as a glimpse into the future of motoring and a Sound-Off competition can all be enjoyed.

In addition to the static displays, there are numerous interactive displays ranging from test drives, passenger rides in drift cars, on “Mad Max” type vehicles, E36 Cup, karting for hire, 4×4 activities, spinning, aerial displays, a kiddies fun fair, (non-compulsory) snake shows, live music all day and lots more.

For the first time, the show is also the end point of the annual “Truckerz Cansa Convoy” charity run; you can marvel at their sheer presence, parked around the outside of Malmesbury Sweep, meet some of the road warriors who (literally) keep this country rolling – and even donate a toy, some non-perishable food or stationery to help families affected by childhood cancer.

Entry costs R100 for adults, R50 for pupils under 16 and free for children under 12. Visit www.wpmc.co.za for more information.
