Overnight? Accommodation in Kyalami, in Gauteng

For those that relish the smell of tyres on the track, the sound of engines being pushed to their limits and the sheer adrenalin of watching drivers careen around a world-class track, Kyalami Racing Circuit is a must-visit. This track is situated in Midrand, which is roughly between Pretoria and Johannesburg in the province of Gauteng.

Since its establishment in 1961, Kyalami Racing Circuit has hosted the Grand Prix and Formula One events several times, both of which are internationally acclaimed and supported. The last Grand Prix hosted here was in 1993 and was won by Alain Prost. However, it is not only the venue of choice for these large-scale events. Kyalami hosts a number of other events and races all through the year, inviting young and young-at-heart to enjoy the excitement together. These are not exclusive to cars, but also feature motorbikes and other vehicles.

The track is 4.26 kilometres long and includes 11 turns and some really challenging corners. These combine with the long straights to create a great track that promises plenty of action. For those that want to try their hand at some adventure, there are super karts, which are high-speed go-karts that can be taken around the circuit for 30 minutes or an hour, depending on driversí needs. In addition, single-seat race cars can be hired here (through Fantastic Racing, situated at the track).

Porsche SA bought the track in 2015 and, since then, the refurbishment of the Kyalami Racing Circuit has been astounding. This was done so that access, efficiency and the excitement of the track are all improved for an even better racing experience.

The area around the race track has been developed into a residential and commercial suburb, placing the track firmly along convenient routes and within easy access of just about all of the major hubs and attractions.
