What has fast become known as South Africa’s most beautiful drive, the Cape 1000 is set to return in March for four days of open road indulgence.

“We are excited to announce that the next annual Cape 1000 brought to you by Private Clients by Old Mutual Wealth will run from 10 to 15 March 2024. The exclusive entry list has been capped at 60 cars and the event sold out within days,” says Event Director, Vanessa Crichton.

This regularity car rally, first launched in 2022, is inspired by legendary tribute races from around the world, with participants competing in four different categories, namely Pre-1976 (Classic); 1977-1996 (Modern Classic); 1997-current (Sports) and Restomod/Recreation

. “Although we have a limited supercar category, the Cape 1000 aims to showcase older and rarer vehicles,” explains Crichton.

 Among this year’s entries are a 1935 Bentley Derby Special, 1958 Corvette Stingray SWC, 1966 Sunbeam Tiger and a 1973 Ferrari Dino.

The four-day rally will kick-off at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town and make its way through Swellendam, George, Oudtshoorn and Hermanus before returning to the Waterfront. While most of the route is devoted to grand touring, the event organisers will focus more intently on the regularity rallying or competitive driving aspect of this year’s event.

Entrants can expect a truly unforgettable experience characterised by spectacular scenery, world-class accommodation and unparalleled camaraderie.

The Cape 1000 is hosted in partnership with Private Clients by Old Mutual Wealth and is organised together with Super Car Lifestyle, which has also hosted SEFAC Cape Tours, Lamborghini Club of South Africa Tours and Concours South Africa.

 The beneficiaries of the event include the Motorsport Legends Benevolent Fund and QuadPara Association of South Africa (QASA). To find out more visit
