On 29 October 2016, the BMW Car Club Gauteng will continue a 26 year tradition with their annual Kyalami Track and Race Day. Headline sponsors Bridgestone, Castrol and Auto Bavaria Midrand have dug deep to help the Club and its members experience the refurbished international circuit first-hand.
The day will be comprised of the BMW Car Club Time Trial Series, the Porsche Club Central Time Trial Series and the ever popular Bridgestone BMW Club Racing Series. The event is now open to holders of an MSA circuit licence, but you will need to become a member of the club first. Membership starts at just R350 and will be held valid until the end of 2017.
Entry fees for the Time Trial sessions are just R1800, but be quick as only valid membership and payment confirms your place in the limited entry list. Both membership application and event entry can be done online at BMW Car Club Gauteng.
#getcaylumtoboston Hot Laps
It has equally been a tradition at the BMW Car Club Kyalami events to help a charity or cause of some sort. This is achieved by offering the public 2 hot laps in a BMW around the circuit for just R200. BMW Driving Experience, Bridgestone and some of the best driving talent in the country have come on board to help us do it again.
This year the club has turned its attention to the plight of baby Caylum Willemse. Caylum requires a medical procedure to save his life that can only be performed in Boston, USA. Naturally this comes at a heavy price and the Club is joining the groundswell to get Caylum to Boston. For more information on Caylum, visit www.caylum.org.za
At the same time, the Club will be supporting the Bridgestone Pink Valve Cap Project to raise funds for breast cancer treatment and awareness. For every hot lap sold, R150 will go to the Caylum Willemse Foundation and R50 will go to the Bridgestone Pink Valve Cap Project.
The Club is thus offering the public the chance to experience Kyalami at full tilt with a professional driver, and give towards a worthy cause. To book a hot lap, log onto BMW Car Club Gauteng.
Please note that only payment will secure your spot.
The event kicks off at 07:30 AM. Entry to spectators is free at the gate, food and refreshments will be on sale.
You will also be able to see the latest BMW models on display by Auto Bavaria Midrand, purchase BMW Lifestyle and BMW Car Club clothing and accessories and discover the latest technology on offer from Castrol.
