The Gumtree World Rallycross of South Africa will make its way back this November, and promises to transform Killarney Raceway with two days of the most exciting motorsport action imaginable.

Catch this motorsport extravaganza on 24 and 25 November. Last year’s hugely successful event had more than 30 000 attendees

The reception and atmosphere will undoubtedly be as highly charged and exciting as it was last year when South Africans from all walks of life lived up to their reputation for being extremely passionate, hospitable and vocal supporters.

“It’s very important for us to come to South Africa,” enthused Paul Bellamy, World RX Managing Director for IMG, “ This is the only FIA World Championship to have a round stage in sub-Saharan Africa. We felt the country was right for a World Championship – I can’t think of any better place in the world to visit in November than Cape Town.”

World Rallycross is also the fastest growing motorsport in the world, with live attendance has shooting up by 225% in five years. This means the people across the globe are catching on to the pure entertainment and utter excitement of seeing all of these motoring beasts battle it out.

Driver entries have also increased, and the big names will be out to play in Cape Town.

Current World Champion Johan Kristoffersson will be joined by hard-racing track heroes Sebastien Loeb, Peter Solberg and Mattias Ekström. With twenty-five hugely popular drivers in all, fans will be spoilt for choice, both of whom to support and in the different driving styles on display.

South African rally cross Driver Mark Cronje describes the event as “Unpredictable and massively entertaining. If you want to come and watch a proper motorsport event, this is the place to be.”

This is going to be a weekend of action-packed entertainment. So go on, satisfy your need for speed and head on over to the Killarney Raceway.

The sun will be out, the engines will be roaring, and the cars will be very, very fast.
