The Pretoria Old Motor Club has successfully negotiated an extra access road which will be in operation for the 2015 edition of South Africa’s biggest car show, the Cars in the Park, scheduled for August 2, 2015.

“Creating the new access road involved negotiations with a land-owner neighbouring the Zwartkops Raceway, and now that we have been given the go-ahead, we can expect traffic flow to improve by a significant margin, “ said show organiser FrikKraamwinkel.

In addition, the usual entry and exit points on the R55 which runs from Kyalami to Laudium have been up-graded, as has the road itself over the past two years.

The new exit will see proper exit roads being established on the north-western corner of the Zwartkops venue, giving improved access to the M26, which runs through the suburb of Erasmia, and then ultimately to William Nichol Drive, which traverses Randburg and Sandton, before joining up with Jan Smuts Avenue in Hyde Park Johannesburg. This route has also been massively up-graded over the past two years, and all work should be complete by August 2.

The Cars in the Park 2015 will see the 36th 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 thisvaried mix of motorised adoration that makes the event so special.
