Over the past 4 years the motor show has grown exponentially and is recognised as one of the premier motor shows, attracting some of the best 300 to 400 cars and motorcycles in South Africa. Many accolades in this regard were received in 2015. The objective for 2016 is to again lift the standard , providing an opportunity for owners of high quality unique cars and motorcycles to be part of the display. The motor show is all about quality and not volume. To ensure that this vision is realised all cars and motor cycles displayed are personally invited and selected. With the popularity of the Knysna motor show growing, it is estimated that in excess of 5000 visitors will come and enjoy the amazing display. The Motor show’s car and motorcycle classification will be :
- Classic cars with a bias towards sports cars
- Modern potential classic cars , sports and super cars
- Veteran and vintage cars and post vintage cars build prior to 1940.
- Motorcycles – veteran , vintage and classic road and racing motorcycles.
Classic Car Africa will once again sponsor two “ Concours d’Elegance “ floating trophies . In addition Auto Glym will sponsor the “ Style et luxe “ floating trophy for the most elegant and luxurious car on view . The winners of these trophies will be selected by independent judges. The motorcycle floating trophy, sponsored by All Sound Security, will be awarded to the best motorcycle on display
Besides providing the fellowship enjoyed by likeminded people , exhibitors and the public , the motor show has been the source of much needed funds for local charities . Over the past 4 years close to R200,000 has been distributed to Hospice, Animal Welfare , E-Pap ( ( Children feeding scheme ) , Knysna High School bursary fund and FAMSA . The drive this year will again be to raise monies for these charities , while enjoying an unforgettable day at the motor show.
