Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit

The Audi R8 LMS in the Kyalami 9 Hour

“For me as a South African, the race is something special: I can stay at home and drive from there to the circuit. The changing elevations and its history make the track impressive.”

Kelvin van der Linde


Located in the Gauteng Province of South Africa, the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit in Midrand near Johannesburg was renovated to its current specification in 2016. The race track is famous for having hosted the South African Grand Prix in the past and also one of the old highlights on the annual sportscar calendar: The Kyalami 9 Hours endurance race – the first of which was held at this circuit in 1961. Kyalami re-entered the world stage of motorsport with the Kyalami 9 Hour in 2019, when the classic endurance was resurrected as part of the Intercontinental GT Challenge.

The circuit’s name, Kyalami, which comes from the word “Khaya lami” means “my home” in Zulu, one of South Africa’s eleven national languages. With a length of 4.522 kilometres, the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit still retains a section of the original circuit from when it was originally opened in 1961.
