Making South African History – Durban Motor Show 2013

The Durban Motor Show will make South African history this year by crowning the first ever national drift champion, in the final meet of the Auto Trader SupaDrift Series. The competition will take place

8 – 10 November in the Durban Motor Show Outdoor Arena. Fans can expect to watch over 30 of South Africa’s top drifters compete to have their name written in the history books. “The series has travelled all around the country this year, building a big following on the way. We are really looking forward to hosting this event. It is a special occasion in the motoring calendar this year” said Andy King, Durban Motor Show owner.

Known as KZN’s longest standing and most successful regional motor show, the Durban Motor Show is trusted for its ability to attract crowds and sell motor products and cars. The vehicles and brands on display this year range from Audi, Nissan, BMW, Land Rover, Jaguar, Lexus, Kia, McLaren, Aston Martin, Rolls-Royce, Toyota, Global GTR, GWM and Mustangs from Amcar; through to the iconic motorcycle brand, Harley Davidson, who will be giving visitors a chance to test out their beautiful machines on board their Harley truck.

The event has been specifically created for real motor enthusiasts who not only love motor sport, but the inner workings of the machines and the accessories that accompany them. “We’ve focused on the after-market industry this year and we’ll have some great well known local businesses – and some exciting newcomers too,” said King.

The show this year has created opportunity for visitors to participate in the activity too, with a show ‘n shine, sound-off and dyno competition being held across the three show days. A Suicide Ride arena will give drifting enthusiasts a chance to experience the thrill of going sideways. And for those who enjoy more of a spectator sport, a daily precision driving demonstration will be held in the Outdoor Arena.

Last year’s hub of activity saw the show re-launch to a 12,000 strong crowd. This year organisers have partnered with broadcasting powerhouse East Coast Radio to not only spread the word further, but ensure that fans are kept entertained with surprise appearances and participation from popular DJs.

At just R80 for adults, R50 for pensioners and with under 12’s getting in free, it is by far the best value for money motor show in the province, and a great day out for the whole family.

Tickets go on sale in October through Computicket. Prices include access to both the Indoor and the Outdoor Arena. Visit the Durban Motor Show website and Facebook page for exclusive competitions and promotions.
