The 2020 running of the Simola Hillclimb will be the eleventh edition of what has become South Africa’s premier motorsport lifestyle event with a growing international footprint.

Whether you have attended the Simola Hillclimb before, or not, you won’t want to miss the 2020 experience as the line-up of cars and activity promises to be better than ever, while the smoke, noise, vibe, excitement levels and off-track activities are the epitome of good entertainment.

Whether you are a petrol head, speed lover or just someone who loves a good time – don’t miss out – you will leave satisfied and enthralled at the spectacle. If you do miss it you will suffer a severe case of FOMO for months afterwards. Simola Hillclimb FOMO is a growing epidemic!

The weekend kicks off on Thursday 7 May with the Fan Fest including the Classic Car Display and Parade in Hedge Street, and from thereon in it is non-stop entertainment for the rest of the weekend. Don’t miss it!
