There are still five weeks to enter for the inaugural Concours South Africa at Sun City from September 9 to 11. This exciting event is to be held for the first time at the world-class entertainment complex Sun City, in the Pilanesberg.
Brian Joss – Concours South Africa gives owners of a broad sweep of collectible cars the unique chance to show off their cars for the entire weekend, while enjoying the splendid garden party atmosphere at Sun City.
“We are delighted with the buzz that this event has generated, and even more excited as to the range of entries already received,” said organiser Ross Crichton.
“We envisaged an event where we had cars ranging from the early 1900s to the current day supercars, and judging by the early entries received, this dream entry is well on its way to being fulfilled.”
Entries for the Concours and Show and Shine sections of the event close on 31 July 2016 to enable the organisers to plan accordingly and allocate berths to the 150 to 160 cars expected for the two main show areas. These are on the lawns adjacent to the Gary Player Country Club.
Car clubs and private owners driving up to the event on a day-tripper basis will be able to park in special bays allocated directly outside the Sun City Hotel area inside the resort, and just a short walk away from the main show area.
“We already have some mouth-watering classics to stand proud along the vast array of supercars that will be making the trip to Sun City,” said co-organiser Paul Kennard. “And so far, judging by early entries, this is the mix we are after!”
Entries to Concours South Africa include a BMW 2002 Turbo believed to be the only road-going example of this iconic car in the country; a Ferrari 365/GTB4 otherwise known as the Daytona; a Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40; an E-Type Jaguar Series 3 and a 1959 Chevrolet Impala.
“What’s gratifying is that we already have entries from as far afield as Hillcrest in KZN,” said Kennard. ”I was also particularly intrigued by the entry of the classic Land Cruiser showing just how diverse our pool of collectible cars is in this country!” said Kennard
