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 centers 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 – Zwartkops, Killarney and Aldo Scribante. A copy of the protocol is enclosed.

Zwartkops International World of Motoring intends to make Zwartkops available with immediate effect for such testing as permitted by the regulations, whilst strictly adhering to the protocol to ensure the safety of our customers.

Manufacturers, dealers and specialist product providers may use the track for testing in a safe and controlled environment.

Zwartkops will not open as a sporting facility and will not be holding any public gatherings nor will it hold any competitions and/or 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.

From June the 1st 2020, Zwartkops International World of Motoring will make this facility available to the public as well. At this stage, we are starting off with only 1 day per week, but will review this should the demand require more days.
