Endurance racing to start 2023 on high note

Motor racing, at best, is loud, smelly and utterly adrenaline generating. Nine constant hours of it - well, it is just the ultimate!

The event is set for February 23 to 25 at the Kyalami race track in Gauteng and practice sessions on Thursday will, for the first time, allow access to spectators.

The second round of the Intercontinental GT Challenge Powered by Pirelli, will be one of many highlights and joining the grid will be some of the top South African teams in FIA-homologated GT3 and GT4 machinery.

More than 200 competitors will participate in the thrilling line-up of support races.

“Topping the support bill is the opening round of the 2023 GTC and SupaCup Championships. Over 50 wild BMWs across the brand’s recent history will battle it out in the first round of the BMW M Performance Parts Race Series.”

Further to this, the hotly contested CompCare Volkswagen Polo Cup enters its 27th year at Kyalami and the 2023 season will be one to watch with interest. there will be the InvestChem F1600’s, Mobil 1 V8s, a substantial entry of Sports and GT cars, and a high-speed Historic Race Car demonstration and static display.

Adam Brown, K9H CEO said, “We launched the Kyalami 9-Hour in 2019 with a great response from the public creating a great platform from which to grow. The global pandemic then hit forcing us to host a race without the vital support of our race fans.

Watch this space in 2023, we are the K9H MotorFest, an extravaganza of all things motoring and motorsport for all our passionate fans!”
