Welcome!
Knysna Speed Festival





The Jaguar Simola Hillclimb 2015 will be the sixth running of the event and is once again set to be bigger and better than ever.

Scheduled for 15-17 May 2015, the Hillclimb is the second in Jaguar’s three-year commitment to the event. Jaguar’s commitment has allowed us to already begin our planning for 2015 with some very exciting and innovative ideas in the pot for the event. We won’t let all the excitement out the bag just year, but as the date draws closer we will reveal all.

The success of the 2014 Hillclimb, which saw 11222 people through the gate - including South African sporting heroes John Smith, Eben Etsebeth, Butch James and media celebrities Ciro De Siena and Nicole da Silva - drew unparalleled interest and word of the event has spread far and wide with not only South African interest reaching new heights, but the level of international enquiries has risen dramatically as well.

Whether you have attended the Jaguar Simola Hillclimb before, or not, you won’t want to miss the 2015. Whether you are a petrol head, speed lover or just someone who just loves a good time – you will leave satisfied and enthralled at the spectacle.

As is now the norm, we will host the Speed Festival Charity Golf Day on Thursday 14 May.
