Killarney - Cape Town's best kept secret?

I bet you did not know that the Western Province Motor Club has it's own racetrack on the outskirts of Cape Town. Killarney, as the track is known, has a rich history in motorsport, including hosting several FIA Formula 1 races in the golden 60's. Racing legends like Sir Stirling Moss or Jim Clark came to Killarney - and so should you.

The Western Province Motor Club is host to a variety of racing categories including open wheel singles seaters, sports cars, motor cycles and gokarts. Today the race course was dedicated to single seaters and different classes of sports, saloon and GT cars.

I am excited to have discovered another secret of Cape Town. Saturdays at Killarney will be one of my favorite activities while visiting Cape Town. The next event on the Killarney race calendar is the Woman's Day on the 16th of August. We will be there!
