STEP 2: UPGRADE
Purchase Upgrades to enhance your #SimolaHillclimb experience. All Upgrades need to be accompanied by an Event Entry Ticket.
Please note that all children over 3 years old will have to purchase an Upgrade at full price in order to gain entry to these areas.
Access into the pitlane is restricted in numbers and is tightly controlled for safety reasons. Add this Upgrade to get close to the cars, speak to the drivers and enjoy the smell of rubber and launch sounds at the Start line. Do not delay – tickets are limited and sell out fast, so book now!
Turn 2 Grandstand
Situated at the second corner from the start, this 400-seater grandstand offers you a view of the Start line and the uphill to The Bridge where front runner cars reach up to approximately 250km/h. Limited seating, this is a popular spot so book your seat now!
STEP 3: EXTRAS
Pit Priority Parking
Only available via Online purchase, a Pit Priority Parking extra allows a ticketholder to park closer to the Pits in a field nearby. Not advisable for Piston Club ticket holders (the Piston Club facility is near Gasoline Alley and this Priority parking is at the bottom) nor for low vehicles as access is via a dirt road.
Pit Priority Parking stickers must be collected from the Pit Priority Parking pickup point at Muse restaurant on Old Cape Road, shortly after turning off the N2 towards the event. It will be clearly signposted.
Attach the sticker to the TOP RIGHT of your windscreen and you will be directed to the Pit Priority Parking. No sticker – no entry.
If you have purchased General Entry tickets, the elderly and young children should be dropped off at the Pit Ticket Entrance before you continue down to the parking as there is a long walk along a dirt road from the Pit Priority Parking to the Pit Ticket Entrance. If you have purchased a Pit Access upgrade, you will have access into the Pits via the back Pit Entrance.
PLEASE NOTE: Sticker pickup at Muse will close at 1pm daily.
