Ferrari fun at Kyalami on 23rd July


The 23rd of July sees the return of the Ferrari marque to Kyalami. The occasion: Ferrari Day, without doubt Africa’s, and possibly the Southern Hemisphere’s, largest gathering of supercars from Maranello.

It’s time to paint the Kyalami race track red this coming Saturday, get the family and come on down to what is set to be a very enjoyable day.  This will be the first of many Ferrari events in a new era of Johannesburg’s historic Grand Prix Circuit. So get down to the track on 23 July. This year’s event, with the support of Shell SA, will be called “The Shell V- Pwer Nitro+ SEFAC Experience Day”.

Expertly organised by SEFAC (the Southern Equitorial Ferrari Automobili Club) and proudly sponsored by Shell V-Power Nitro+, the annual SVPN+ SEFAC Experience Day is the one occasion when members of the world’s oldest Ferrari owners’ club have unrivalled access to this challenging circuit.

“SVPN+ SEFAC Experience Day 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. Given the track’s new layout and pit building reconstruction, we are expecting a turnout second-to-none. Great cars on the day will include the all-new 488, a unique 250 GT racecar from the sixties, a fire-breathing F40, demonstration runs from the 360 Challenge series and over 200 others ranging from the 1960’s to the 2016’s”, says the event’s organiser Peter Angouras, Committee member of SEFAC.
