Gauteng Motor Show

Gauteng Motor Show
The Gauteng Motorshow was founded in 2004 at Zwartkops Raceway and was the brain-child of Alan Cawood, the owner of A.C. Local & International Marketing. The show is one of the largest, most action packed motoring events in South Africa and each year it promises to bring you more action packed excitement than the last. The show is now brought to you by Thebe Exhibitions & Projects Group, Southern Africas most forward thinking and successful organisers of world-class exhibitions and events (a company that has a world record of successful events behind them such as Decorex, BOFE, the Book Fair and Sports & Events Tourism Exchange to name a few).

For those who want to know a little more about the show:
The Gauteng Motorshow was founded in 2004 at Zwartkops Raceway and was kicked off with a bang and by year 2 was already attracting thousands of spectators. The third year saw the show move to Wesbank Raceway where a world record was set with a mass ride of quad-bikes and off-road bikes between Boksburg and the venue. In 2007, new and breathtaking events were introduced. Visitors were witness to drifting illustrations, crazy stunt jumping by Ride Authority. A wide range of exhibitors showcased products ranging from the smallest Racing Cars to the spider like 4X4s, trucks, boats & classics right through to the Extreme racing Cultures. After Wesbank Raceway was closed down, the show moved to the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit in 2008. Nedbank bought into the concept and sponsored the event for years 2008 and 2009. The 2008 Nedbank Gauteng Motor show was the biggest and most successful show to date, with thousands of spectators attending the show. In 2009 the organizers felt that it was time to push the boundaries of the show and the focus moved to "Action" . Amazing displays such as the Mazda Aerobatics Team, The Auto Trader & XS Promotions Drifters, High Flying Freestyle MX stunts and high speed track events kept spectators dazzled throughout the weekend. But it was moving the Gauteng Motorshow back to its place of origin Zwartkops Raceway in 2010, that gave the team the inspiration needed to recreate some of the ideas surrounding the show. With the support of Top Car Magazine (Media 24) and XS Promotions two entirely new concepts were created. The Top Car Experience and the Auto Trader SupaDrift Series were introduced together with a wide range of other acts. And with Top Car Magazine now the leading sponsor, the 2011 show introduced some incredible flying by the Gabriel Wings, the Cell C Harvard's and Mazda Zoom Zoom pilots. The Top Car Gauteng Motor Show 2012 was a great success, pushing the bar of this spectacular motoring experience to even greater heights.
