we are going the full distance This year!



The Intercontinental GT Challenge Series Powered by Pirelli, is a GT3 and GT4 Sportscar based series which has run at Kyalami since 2019. The series visits the five continents and the Kyalami round, in February, will be the second round of the five-race 2023 season. The 9 Hour will be contested by both overseas and local GT3 and GT4 race teams. It is expected that over 20 entries, including top international and local drivers, will fight for overall and class victories in the endurance race. All the top national motorsport categories will also participate in various support races during three days of track action.

The K9H race with the addition of the K9H Motor Fest content is evolving into one of the more diverse motoring orientated festivals in South Africa. The event, which will offer more family orientated, motoring enthusiast and industry related activities, is scheduled to be held from 23 to 25 February 2023, featuring various activations, exciting entertainment and networking opportunities for corporates, manufacturers and the general public, all culminating in the international Kyalami 9 Hour race.

Over 200 competitors have committed to the mouth-watering line-up of support races – each category featuring two races – over the three days. Topping the support bill is the opening round of the 2023 GTC and SupaCup Championships. The ’22 title fight between the Champion Robert Wolk and the trio of Toyota Gazoo Corollas was fierce and war will resume once more, along with rumoured new machinery due to debut at round one.  Over 30 wild BMWs across the brand’s recent history will battle it out in the first round of the BMW M Performance Parts Race Series. It is consistence and not outright pace that can deliver a championship, as demonstrated by Nicolas Fischer’s Class E machine bagging the title.

In addition, the CompCare Volkswagen Polo Cup –the championship that launched the careers of Kelvin and Sheldon van der Line and Jordan Pepper amongst a host of others – enters its 27th year at Kyalami. Ultra-competitive, the final race of 2022 saw five drivers in contention for the grand prize and the new season will be one to watch with interest.


The InvestChem F1600 Championship – offering the biggest cash prizes in South African motorsport –  kick off their year along with the opening round of the thundering

Mobil 1 V8 Championship. The V8 silhouette cars have always been a crowd favourite at Kyalami with six-times champion Mackie Adlam the man with a target on his back.

A massive entry of Sports and GT cars, offering a wide variety of racing machinery, will keep spectators on the edge of their seats and if that is not enough there will be a Historic Car parade and static display, with a delectable array of cars from the halcyon days of South African motorsport.
