Every year, the Pretoria Old Motor Club hold a Cars In The Park event at Zwartkops raceway and this year it is happening on the 31st of July.
The Cars in the Park 2016 will see the 37th running of the event which was started by the Pretoria Old Motor Club in the early 1980s, and held initially at the old Pioneer Museum in Silverton, east of Pretoria.
Since those early times, where the event was strictly a classic car show, the event has evolved to the point where it attracts some 3 000 special-interest motor cars, over 100 car clubs, associated motoring and apparel store holders and over 15 000 spectators.
It is by far the biggest car show on the South African calendar, and in fact it is the biggest event on the Zwartkops Raceway calendar, being likened to South Africa’s version of the famous British Goodwood festivals.
Cars that show up every year range from vintage machines dating back as early as 1904 to classics from the 1950s and 1960s, hot rods, muscle cars, dragsters, customised motorcycles and hot turbocharged street machines. It is this varied mix of motorised adoration that makes the event so special.
The gates will be open from 08:00 for spectators.
Tickets are on sale at the gate. R100 per adult and kids under 12 get in for FREE!
