Slick modern and old school muscle roll into the Durban Exhibition Centre when the iconic Durban Motor Show opens its doors for a weekend of high-octane thrills on Friday.
The annual Durban Motor Show has become an institution on the KwaZulu-Natal calendar.
This year, the event continues its outstanding legacy, by offering motoring fans and families exactly what they want; the sleekest, sweetest, loudest, baddest and most beautiful rides.
“We’ve been bringing superb vehicles to KZN audiences for over 20 years,” said show director Liezle Bothma.
“This year we decided to look back at the cars that first thrilled us, and put them up against today’s creations.”
George Blakie, one of the owners of the Halfway Group, is one of the main exhibitors and will be at the 2014 event bigger and better than before.
A new show feature called In the Ring With Chad will blow the lid off a Pandora’s Box of modern beauties alongside classic cars.
Even the most casual petrol head will be brought up to speed with static start demonstrations and detailed information on vehicles displayed, all led by Ignition TV presenter Chad Luckhoff.
The Redline Village premieres with the sole aim of taking on the adrenaline junkies.
There visitors will be thrilled by the antics of the le Riche Brothers, and taken high with SevenSeven0Sport’s FREEFALL bag jump which includes daily demonstrations of trick bike tow-ins on motorcycles.
“We’ve even brought in a miniature steam train,” said Bothma “a beautiful example of the roots of motoring. Families will get to lap on the 150-metre long track. It’s a first for Durban.”
The age-old crowd favourite Bash A Bakkie will give sledgehammer smashing visitors a chance to dent a car, or fans can hop on the wheelie simulator by Mallaz Customs to test their skills on a Honda Fireblade.
At The Fastlane, presented by The Post, the Gforce Tyres Show ‘n Shine and RDG Dyno Wars will mesmerise on Saturday, and The Soundlab Sound Off powered by Macpower goes live and loud on Sunday. All entrants will receive certificates, with trophies and prizes going to the winners.
“We’re proud to say that East Coast Radio returns as our broadcasting partner with our favourite DJs attending the show,” Bothma added.
“Rumours are strong that a certain breakfast DJ might test out the freefall. Watch this space.”
