10 Oct KILLARNEY MOTOR SHOW – MONSTER ENERGY BACK
Monster not only comes to the party with their Gig Rig (visit them on the Porsche Straight, just past the start/finish line), they are also bringing multiple drifting champion Jason Webb to the Killarney Motor Show to thrill you with V8 thunder and clouds of rubber smoke, and amaze you with his precision car control.
In addition, they have sponsored one of the show’s most coveted competition prizes – a this 1/10th scale radio-controlled replica of Ken Block’s Hoonicorn Mustang RSR. This is not a toy; it’s a serious R/C performance machine and it comes with everything you need in the box, including the controller and batteries – all you have to do is hook them up and go!
And all you have to do to stand a chance to win this amazing prize is to answer one simple question:

All the correct answers received by 1:00pm on the day of the Show, Sunday 30 October, will go into a crash helmet and the winner will be drawn at 3:00pm on stage at the Monster Gig Rig – so you’ll have to be there to collect your prize.
ABOUT THE 2022 KILLARNEY MOTOR SHOW:
The biggest motor show in the Western Cape is back, bigger and better than ever, and you’re invited! After an enforced absence of two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are celebrating the return of the Killarney Motor Show, powered by the City of Cape Town and supported by Masterdrive, Alert Engine Parts, Wingfield Motors and Motul, on Sunday 30 October.
The fifth edition of this garden party on wheels also celebrates the 75th anniversary of motorsport at Killarney, the cars and motorcycles that have raced here 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.
But more than that, the Killarney Motor Show is about looking ahead to the future. The new car dealers have their own dedicated test drive circuit, offering test drives on the latest models all day, and we host hundreds of vendors offering just about anything you can think of for your car – and your tummy, with a huge variety of watering holes serving ice-cold drinks, sit-down eateries and takeaways!
Pay at the gate or book at Computicket on https://computicket-boxoffice.com/e/killarney-motor-show-8uJ50s – There’s more than enough on the programme to keep you amazed and entertained from “Gates Open” at 10:00am to “Last Call” at 5:00pm, for just R100 for adults, R50 for scholars under 16 and free for children under 12, with non-stop entertainment for the whole family, and more than 2000 displays vendors and interactive experiences.
Please bear in mind that if you purchase your tickets online, you will still have to collect the physical tickets, including the free tickets for children under 16, at Computicket or the Computicket outlet at the Money Market counter in your nearest Shoprite, Checkers, Checkers Hyper or Usave store.
This is arguably the most evocative show of its kind in the Western Cape, bringing together as it does 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.
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.
The paddock behind the Clubhouse brings together hundreds of exotics bearing names such as Porsche, Jaguar and Alfa Romeo, but you’ll also see race cars old and new, as well as restored family cars from bygone days. Nothing teaches automotive history to the next generation of petrolheads like getting up close and personal with historic vehicles.
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. And that’s what the Killarney Motor Show is all about: it’s a full day of family entertainment, and it’s all for real. Nearly all the vehicles on display, old and new, arrive on their own wheels, the stunts are genuine – the one thing you won’t find at the Killarney Motor Show is anything virtual or simulated.
