Knysna Hillclimb

Welcome to the home of the Knysna Hillclimb. While it is a new event on the South African motorsport calendar, in less than one year since its first running the event has created a huge amount excitement in the motorsport fraternity. Catering to historic, classic and modern road and race cars the Knysna Hillclimb has hit a niche that was not previously catered for on the motorsport calendar. Add in the idyllic Simola Country Estate and Knysna Estuary and we believe that we have the world’s most impressive hillclimb route.

Our objective for the hillclimb is to mix competitive spirit with a lot of fun. Therefore, while the action on the track can get pretty hot and exciting, we want both the spectators that attend the event and the competitors to leave feeling that they had a blast.

As in 2009 this will mean a number of social functions arranged for the drivers and their spouses, but this year we go one further by incorporating the Mayor’s Golf Day into our programme of events.

For spectators; in 2010 we will have access to the pits, classic cars on display, a Gasoline Alley area for entertainment and purchases, and hospitality facilities.

2009 saw the event attract 49 competitors and almost 6000 spectators to the event. This year we are sure to have even more and we want each and every one to leave feeling satisfied. Please feel free to use this website to leave us your thoughts and ideas for improvement.
