It’s time for Capetonians to get revved up once more.
The Cape Town Motor Show, in partnership with the City of Cape Town, is set to wow the crowds again at Sun GrandWest, from 2-4 March 2018. It promises to be a weekend of incredible fun with a broad appeal to all car and bike buffs, petrol heads and the entire family, with loads of entertainment for everyone.
The Mother City will again boast a motor show that rivals any of the international equivalents. CTMS will span the length and breadth of the Sun GrandWest Entertainment World, including the Market Hall, Grand Arena, the Sun Exhibits Hall, and an Outdoor Area, and will include a Drifting Zone, Nostalgia Zone, Chill Zone, and Camping and 4×4 area.
Motorbike enthusiasts will be glad to know that if it has two wheels (sometimes three) and an engine, it will be at the Cape Town Motor Show. Representing the best products, bikes and services available from leading companies across the globe – the show is a haven for bikers of any age, or level of experience – and to top it off, one lucky visitor will leave the CTMS with their own Harley-Davidson!
Drift car displays will run all weekend and spectators are welcome to either watch from the sidelines, or for those brave enough, join our experts as a passenger as they take you for the spin of your life. Additionally, visitors will have the opportunity to see numerous accessories and auto-related exhibits, competition vehicles, muscle cars, monster trucks, antique and collector cars, engine modifications (pimped-up rides), Sound-Off Beats competitions, virtual simulations, custom trucks, hot-rods, car wrapping, and much more!
This year also boasts a number of mouth-watering new additions that include a major new outdoor area with the Wildebeest 4×4 Challenge Club. All 4X4s from your standard off-the-show-room 4X4 to your extreme 4X4s, tracks will be built for all classes of vehicles to challenge technical skills as well as the different cars capabilities. The CTMS is also excited to announce that another new spectacle is The Dusty Rebels and the Bombshells area. Here visitors can expect axe throwing, selected pre ‘63 cars, Café racers, Metal Shaping by Anvl Kraft, Food trucks, Skate boarding & BMX demos, Jack Daniel’s Bars, SCAR, Barnet Fair Barbers and the most insane Mutant Desert vehicles.
To top things off, Jaguar Land Rover South Africa will be showcasing their world-first Two Icons Tour experience, which has just been in JHB at the top of Sandton City and now comes to the CTMS. This exhilarating experience will give guests an opportunity to experience Jaguar’s Art of Performance Tour and Land Rover’s Above and Beyond Tour, like never before, in one location!
The Tour will give you an opportunity to immerse yourself in various experiences across the two brands including self-drive and driven experiences, as well as other brand activities taking place at the CTMS. Besides all the above attractions, there are also going to be helicopter flips available and WFI Auto Detailing are really pulling out the stops with a prize where Old School muscle meets new school convenience. WFI and the CTMS are currently putting together a late 70s Ford model truck that is going to be a blend of old school muscle with a roaring engine and wide body lines, coupled with all the new trimmings one would hope and expect in the modern era. The Ford spirit will truly reveal itself in this custom muscle truck.
