9.3 The town parade (CCF) and exhibitions have become exceptionally popular events within the Hillclimb with much anticipation from the public. As such there has been disappointment from spectators when cars/competitors do not participate. Therefore, the organisers are re-introducing them as compulsory elements of the event as follows:

9.4 It is compulsory for Classic Car Friday competitors to participate in the exhibition of cars at the Knysna Waterfront and town parade. Competitors will be required to have their vehicles scrutineered and then park them in a demarcated holding area at the Knysna Waterfront until such time as the cars are called for the town parade. No speeding will be allowed during the parade. Cars can be driven or trailered by non-competitors where required.

9.5 It is compulsory for King of the Hill competitors to participate in an exhibition of cars in Knysna Main Road. Competitors will be required to have their vehicles scrutineered and then park them in a demarcated holding area at the Knysna Waterfront until such time as the cars are moved to the exhibition area in Main road. No speeding will be allowed while driving the cars between the two points.

9.6 The details, specification and chassis number of the competition vehicle as presented at scrutineering must match the details of the vehicle description as published in the Final Entry Form pertaining to the event. Competitors will be requested to duly sign the scrutineering form pertaining to the entry for declaration of conformation of correctness in this regard.

9.7 Any competitor reported speeding or committing any sort of misconduct on public roads throughout the period of the event (thereby bringing Motorsport into disrepute) will be fined and/or excluded.

10. PROGRAMME OF EVENTS:

10.1 The Programme of events is to be found at the end of these SR’s Please note this programme is provisional and may be changed. Should the organisers deem it necessary to change the timetable, a revised version will be published on the official notice board or issued to the competitors in the form of a bulletin. The organisers reserve the right to change the programme as necessary and combine or split classes prior to the closing of entries should the number of entries dictate.

10.2 Cocktail Party
Due to the increasing number of people attending the cocktail party over the past few years and growing number of competitors, we now have to limit the number of invitees. This is essential due to the capacity of the venue, and only fair to the Simola Hotel to allow it to cater adequately for the number of guests attending.

Each competitor entry will receive 2 complimentary cocktail wristbands for the function. Should you wish to bring additional guests, the cost is R250 per ticket. Additional tickets have to be purchased in advance only, and will NOT be available for purchase at Simola on the day or at documentation. Please note that the number of tickets available are limited and are on a first come first served basis.

In order to purchase additional tickets please email: hospitality@speedfestival.co.za indicating your competitor reference number and the number of tickets you require. We will then send you an invoice with the banking details.
