The Cape Town Motor Show (CTMS) is set to wow the crowds again at GrandWest Casino and Entertainment World from on March 2 and 3. Now in its third year, the show promises two days of fun and excitement with a broad appeal to all car and bike buffs, petrolheads and the whole family, providing loads of entertainment for everyone.
The show features a complete range of domestic and imported passenger cars, bikes and trucks, as well as experimental or concept cars. Visitors will have the opportunity to see numerous accessories and auto-related exhibits, competition vehicles, antique and collector cars, modified vehicles, a Sound Off competition, virtual simulations, car wrapping, drifting, a large 4×4 outside area, live music and much more!
Soundmatch will deliver a Show & Shine event, with a wide range of the finest cars showcasing custom builds, with a few being premiered on the day. The entertainment will include an internationally recognised Sound Off competition in association with IASCA (the standard by which mobile electronics performance is measured). For the passionate entrants of the Sound Off, the louder the sound the greater the chance to win!
Be trackside for some wheel-spinning, tyre-smoking, sideways action brought to you by XS Promotions. The popular drifting displays will run all weekend and spectators are welcome to either watch from the sidelines or, for those brave enough, join the experts as a passenger as they take you for the spin of your life.
The Wildebeest 4×4 Challenge Club will again host 4×4 tracks built for all classes of vehicles to challenge technical skills as well as the different vehicle capabilities. Off-the-showroom floor 4x4s as well as extreme 4x4s will be showcased, and visitors can purchase tickets to try this out for themselves.
The impressive Grand Arena will host the best of the best of the top manufacturers and dealers, showcasing new cars and concepts in South Africa, including some past brands like Shelby, Road to Race, Audi, BMW, VW, Ford, Jaguar, Kia, Land Rover, Peugeot, Subaru, Jeep and Alfa Romeo to name a few. The Grand Arena will also once again have interactive test driving.
The Nostalgia Zone will take you back in time to the “Good Ol’ Days” with vehicles dating as far back as the 1920s. These are among the most rare and unique in the world. Check out the beautifully restored vehicles and the products that make it possible for these classics to be modified back to their original manufactured or showroom conditions. Due to popular demand up to 80 of these fine cars will be on display in their own dedicated.
Exciting news is that CTMS will be giving away a custom MG at the 2019 show. This special project will boast a complete rebuild, some unique Cape Kustoms elements and a 3,9-litre Rover V8 motor.
And, for those less interested in rockin’ and rollin’ on wheels, Dusty Rebels and the Bombshells will again offer visitors an experience of the good old days of Rock n Roll.
Tickets can be bought via Computicket at R120 per person, R60 for pensioners and kids between 12 and 17. Entrance is free for children under the age of 12 years.
