Tickets for the Simola Hillclimb now available

Taking place from 7 – 10 May 2020, tickets for the Simola Hillclimb motoring lifestyle event has been opened.

Next year the event will be in its 11th iteration and promises to be better than ever having grown in stature, competitiveness and appeal locally and internationally. Spectators are urged to secure their tickets early as over the past decade the event has seen record crowds attend and access availability, even pit and VIP hospitality packages, is limited.

“We are delighted with the growth and success of the Simola Hillclimb over the past 10 years, and in 2019 we welcomed more than 17 000 local and international visitors, which was a record turn-out for this event. With competitors continually upping the ante each year with wilder, faster and more spectacular machinery, the Simola Hillclimb continues gaining popularity in South Africa, and around the world. Following the great success of the 2019 event, we expect next year to be even bigger, so fans are advised to book their tickets early on the Simola Hillclimb website. This is particularly important for enthusiasts who want to get close to the cars and drivers,” Ian Shrosbree, managing director of Knysna Speed Festival.

For the third consecutive year, the event organisers will keep the online bookings at the same price at R120 per person while children under the age of 12 years will gain free general entry. Further incentives include discounted prices for visitors purchasing three or more tickets for the Classic Car Friday segment and an R100 saving online for visitors buying three-day passes in comparison to purchasing at the gate.

“As always, there are a limited number of Pit Access tickets and these always sell out very quickly. We have designed the online ticket system to allow people to build their own custom packages, starting out with the General Entry, then having the option of adding upgrades such as Pit Access, Grandstand seating and Pit Priority Parking. There are single entry tickets, as well as three-day passes that offer the best value for money,” Ian Shrosbree, managing director of Knysna Speed Festival.

There are multiple viewing points extending from the start line although the turn two grandstands will provide a vantage point which covers 1.9 km or almost half the course. Seating and the variety of VIP hospitality packages, which include exclusive vantage points, meals and refreshments, are limited and spectators should book soon to secure these options. On the Friday visitors can expect a display of both road and race classics making their way up the hill while Saturday and Sunday will host the infamous King of the Hill competition which will see the three categories; road-going saloon cars and supercars, the modified saloon cars category and the single-seaters and sports cars category compete for the ultimate glory.
