The Jaguar Simola Hillclimb 2018

The Jaguar Simola Hillclimb will take place for its ninth year running from 3 - 6 May 2018 at the Knysna Waterfront Quays. This annual hillclimb celebrates the love of motor sport and all things automotive. Whether you are a self-proclaimed petrol head, a speed freak or looking for a thrilling time – you will leave feeling satisfied and enthralled at the spectacle.

This South African race is designed to emanate the Goodwood Festival of Speed, a world-renowned event that takes place in the UK each year.

The success of the 2017 Hillclimb, which saw over 15 000 people through the gate – including miss South Africa Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, author Khaya Dlanga and comedian Jason Goliath – continued to draw unparalleled interest in South African motorsport and word of the event has spread far and wide with not only South African interest reaching new heights, but international recognition growing too thanks to the participation of American drivers Randy Pobst, Kai Goddard and Steve Kimpton. Coverage in Motor Trend online magazine this year and in Octane Magazine in 2016, as well as other motoring publications and third party video channels, has spread the word internationally.

Whether you have attended the Jaguar Simola Hillclimb before, or not, you won’t want to miss the 2018 event as the line-up of cars and activity promises to be better than ever, while the smoke, noise, vibe, excitement levels and off-track activities are the epitome of good entertainment. Whether you are a petrol head, speed lover or just someone who loves a good time – don’t miss out – you will leave satisfied and enthralled at the spectacle.

As is now the norm, activity kicks off on Thursday 3 May with the Classic Car Display and Parade in Hedge Street and the Speed Festival Charity Golf Day.
