Killarney Circuit Hire

Uncategorised

The Emergency Automotive Regulations (Regulation 11111 of 12 May 2020) issued by the Minister of Trade and Industry, made provision for the operation of vehicle test centres in support of the automotive industry. 

The interpretation and application of the regulations are set out in a Protocol commissioned and compiled by the controlling body for motorsport in South Africa, Motorsport South Africa (MSA) and endorsed by senior legal counsel. This Protocol will be used at each of these race circuits around South Africa – Killarney, Kyalami, Zwartkops and Aldo Scribante.  A copy of the Protocol is enclosed.

The Western Province Motor Club makes Killarney available for such testing as permitted by the regulations, whilst strictly adhering to the Protocol to ensure the safety manufacturers, dealers and specialist product providers may use the track for testing in a safe and controlled environment.

Killarney will not open as a sporting facility and will not be holding any public gatherings nor will it hold any recreational events. Public spectators will not be permitted into the venue. Risk-adjusted measures, social distancing, personal protection gear and hygiene measures will be applied.

Please see below the slots/session that are available for Private Circuit Hire in January and February 2021.

Should you be making the reservation on behalf of friends, please include them in cc and list their names and contact details so as to allow me to follow procedure.

Kindly keep in mind that, as well as the requisite PPE (masks, etc.), applicable safety wear applies (Cars – Helmet, long sleeves, long trousers and closed shoes) / (Bikes – Helmet, boots that cover ankle, good riding jacket and trousers).

Both road and race bikes are welcome but no current racing licence holders will be allowed to ride. Scrutineering will take place from 8am until 9:00am. No loud exhausts – bikes that hit the red line on our officially calibrated noise meter will be removed from the circuit.

Please remember that all the Level 2 Covid-19 health and safety protocols for sporting facilities continue to apply. Unfortunately, spectators are not permitted at events.


Access to KILLARNEY

Due to the restriction on movement, access to the facility other than for an extreme emergency, will not be possible during this period; this includes bomas, garages, offices and workshops.

The existing security service will continue, along with additional measures; however, because of its size the facility is difficult to secure with no activity on site.
