The Knysna motor show is organised by the Garden Route Motor Club ( GRMC )and is now recognised as one of the premier motor shows in South Africa .Over the past four years the motor show has grown exponentially in attracting the best 300 to 400 classic cars from across South Africa . The 2016 Motor show was regarded by participants and the press as the best and well organised that they have attended in SA . Accolades were received from all quarters.
The objective for 2017 is to again lift the standard and make it a motor show with a difference , providing the opportunity for owners of high quality and unique cars to be displayed in a country style and relaxed atmosphere . The motor show over the past two years have also included Veteran , vintage and classic road and racing motorcycles ,which has added a further successful dimension to the motor show .
To ensure the quality of the vehicles / motorcycles on display , invitations are targeted and all vehicles / motorcycles are personally selected . With the popularity of the motor show growing we estimate that the show will draw in excess of 5000 visitors ( Mainly from the Garden Route area , but a fair percentage also from across SA ) .
Besides providing the fellowship enjoyed by likeminded people , exhibitors , the motor trade and the public , the show has been the source of much needed funds for local charities. Over the past four years close to R200,000 has been distributed to Hospice , Animal welfare , E-PAP ( Children feeding scheme ) , Knysna High School bursary fund for under privileged learners and FAMSA . This is the GRMC’S major drive , once a year , to raise money for these charities within the Garden Route area.
