South Africa – In what could be the last Prancing Horse invasion of Johannesburg’s storied Grand Prix circuit, 19 July 2014 sees the return of the Ferrari marque to Kyalami. The occasion: Ferrari Day, undoubtedly Africa’s largest gathering of supercars from Maranello.
Expertly organised by SEFAC (Southern Equitorial Ferrari Automobili Club), the annual Kyalami event is the one occasion when members of the world’s oldest Ferrari owners’ club have unrivalled access to the challenging 4.26 km circuit.
“Ferrari Day at Kyalami is quite possibly South African motoring’s best kept secret: a festival of speed and sound when 200 of Maranello’s finest automotive creations descend on the legendary racetrack,” said event organiser Peter Angouras of SEFAC.
“Given the track’s uncertain future, we are expecting a turnout second-to-none. Great cars already confirmed for the day include the all-new 458 Speciale, a unique 250 GT racecar from the sixties and the fire-breathing F40 – the last car to be personally signed off by Enzo Ferrari.”
Upwards of 10 000 spectators are anticipated so the organisers recommend getting to the circuit early. Gates open at 09h00 and general admission is free of charge.
