BMW M Fest takes to the corners of Kyalami
After three years of waiting, BMW South Africa is hosting a celebration for one of the wildest collections of German sports cars around, specifically the kind which sports the M badge.
Kyalami is a South African racing treasure and has hosted some of the world's most spectacular races and events; from Formula One to the Kyalami 9-Hour endurance race. It is a track which displays the best that racing has to offer. As the world is slowly getting back into the swing of things, it's incredible to see this 4.5-kilometre circuit come alive again.
The BMW M Festival is set to excite performance fans with a weekend of exciting track experiences, passionate enthusiasts and brand-new releases. This is where M aficionados can come and bask in the latest and greatest from one of the best performance car brands around.
The M Festival is known for its exciting and adrenalin-fuelled experiences. However, this year we'll be witnessing a few incredible new vehicles which are rolling off this German manufacturer's production lines. Cars like the BMW M4 CSL and the BMW XM will be viewed for the first time in South Africa. Plus, this year the festival will be launching the global premiere of the all-new BMW M2, which is a first for the BMW M Festival.
There'll also be a pop-up BMW dealership which will allow you to see the cars first-hand and kick back and enjoy the M beer garden. Parents are sure to appreciate the expanded M Kids Zone, so both parents and kids can enjoy what the festival has to offer.
Be sure to keep an eye out for the BMW Car Club Gauteng's M-performance parts race series cars that'll be showing off in spectacular fashion and spinning demonstrations from our nation's finest spinning drivers. I know that there'll be an endless amount of entertainment to distract any enthusiast.
BMW is celebrating 50 years of M this year, so expect this brand to go big. Needless to say, I'm excited as this will be one of the greatest displays of the M brand to date. The Festival will be held on the 15th and the 16th of October with tickets for the 15th already sold out. Check online for ticket availability with tickets priced at R200 for adults and R120 for kids under 18. I look forward to seeing what BMW has up their sleeves. I'm sure it's going to be one for the record books.
