Welcome!
Knysna Speed Festival





The Knysna Speed Festival welcomes you to Knysna for the Jaguar Simola Hillclimb 2014. This will be the fifth running of the event that started in 2009 but took a hiatus in 2013 due to the unforeseen withdrawal of our sponsor at a late stage. We are now back, better than ever, with an exceptional sponsor in Jaguar and exciting times ahead as we grow the event to be bigger and better than ever.

The Jaguar Simola Hillclimb takes place on 16 - 18 May 2014 and is sure to entertain any and all speed lovers – and people who just love a good time - from all across South Africa for a weekend of pure adrenalin and fun filled action for the whole family!

As part of the Speed Festival the Hillclimb is preceded by the Knysna Motor Show, run by the Garden Route Motor Club, on Sunday 11 May, and our Speed Festival Charity Golf Day on Thursday 15 May.
