A feast of Dunlop tyre treats awaits Festival of Motoring visitors

Dunlop Tyres will once again celebrate more than just its racing successes when it returns to the annual Festival of Motoring at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit over the weekend of 25-27 August.

Dunlop is of course completely at home at any racetrack. The racing tyre of choice for the cream of South African National Championship motorsport, everything from Global Touring Cars to GTC SupaCup, CompCare Polo Cup and the Toyota Gazoo League only run Dunlop tyres. As do many other leading saloon and sportscar series. Now fans can explore the many other Dunlop tyre choices for whatever they drive every day, at the Kyalami expo too.

Dunlop is going big for the 2023 Festival of Motoring, offering visitors several not to be missed attractions and experiences. Not only will Dunlop showcase its key Passenger, Commercial, 4X4 and SUV, Motorsport, and Motorcycle ranges at the biggest motoring extravaganza in South Africa, but it will also offer showgoers even more opportunities to experience its products hands on and first hand.

Dunlop this year teams up with Toyota and Mitsubishi to offer visitors the thrill of a free professionally driven Dunlop Grandtrek Hilux or Pajero Sport 4×4 experience over at the Blue Zone 4×4 Village. This opportunity also showcases why Dunlop Grandtrek is the standard fitment tyre of choice for most bakkie and SUV manufacturers in SA.

South Africa’s most comprehensive range of SUV and 4X4 tyres, Dunlop Grandtrek is designed, engineered, and developed to deliver best performance in both on and off-road conditions. Ideal for that supercar or super salon, Dunlop SportMaxx tyres are meanwhile focussed on ultimate street and road performance.

All SportMaxx and Grandtrek tyres are backed by Dunlop Sure’s three key pillars of free tyre cover including Product Life and Mileage Warranties, and Dunlop’s All Road Hazard Tyre Insurance for the replacement of Dunlop tyres damaged beyond repair within the first year of purchase from a Dunlop franchise.

Getting back to the Kyalami Festival of Motoring racetrack attractions, Dunlop is collaborating with MasterDrive and Subaru to offer hot laps around the Grand Prix Circuit to show off its recently launched SportMaxx 060+ Ultra High Performance road tyre. Dunlop is also Suzuki’s Festival of Motoring tyre of choice, with all its 14 cars running on Dunlop rubber.

Also visit the Dunlop hospitality area in the upper pit lane area, where multiple fun activities will keep everyone entertained. Dunlop has exciting prizes for kids and adults who display exceptional skills on its two driving simulator machines and in slot car races.

The Dunlop-supported Festival of Motoring brings key motor industry players together with car enthusiasts and the general public in a three-day motor extravaganza from 25 to 27 August. Featuring over 150 exhibitors and 20 car brands showcasing motor industry innovation and technology in the Kyalami Pit Complex Exhibition Centre and around the circuit, it’s a spectacle not to be missed!
