Extreme Festival

Watch South Africa’s top drivers together on one track in closely matched cars to battle it out, right here in the Mother City for one day only.

There are adrenaline-pumping races planned for the G&H Transport Extreme Supercars, GTC & SupaCup cars, the CompCare Polo Cup, and the Gazoo Racing SA Cup. Serious open-wheel fans will live for the Investchem Formula 1600s and Formula Ford Kent single-seaters – as well as the superbikes of the Kawasaki ZX10 Masters Cup.

Supercar aficionados won’t want to miss G&H Transport Extreme Supercars where exotic machines such as Lamborghinis, Porsches, Aston Martins, Audi R8s, McLarens, and highly modified street-cars battle it out against the best.

Younger drivers also get an opportunity to showcase their skills at the CompCare Polo Cup Racing sporting identical cars at this event in Cape Town

Fans can meet South Africa’s top drivers at the Fan Walks during the lunch break and guests are welcome to catch the action from different viewing points throughout the day. The pits are also open to spectators so you can see the cars and motorcycles up close.
