Welcome to the biggest motoring extravaganza in South Africa. Event goers can expect even more motorsport content, track time, self-drives and participating automotive manufacturers.

The Festival of Motoring is not your average motoring event. It’s the one event that brings the entire industry together and allows visitors to not only view or compare the latest models, but to jump in and experience the performance and handling of these vehicles on the track.

Festival of Motoring provides world class motoring and motorsport content to appeal to the many “petrolheads’ with the show having a strong family appeal.

The Show draws a large base of motoring enthusiasts with the provision of a substantial platform for the industry to showcase new models and the latest technical innovations.
