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. BEFORE 2019, I DIDN'T THINK THAT I WOULD TAKE PART IN A HOME RACE IN GT3 RACING, BUT NOW IT IS OUR SEASON FINALE.

RACE FACTS

Located in the Gauteng Province of South Africa, the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit in Midrand near Johannesburg re-entered the world stage of motorsport last year for the first time since its renovations were completed in 2016. The race track is famous for having hosted the South African Grand Prix and one of the old highlights on the annual sportscar calendar: The Kyalami 9 Hours endurance race – the first of which at this circuit was held in 1961. After not taking place, the race was resurrected by the Intercontinental GT Challenge in 2019.

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.
