Knysna Slot Car Challenge
The Knysna Slot Car Challenge will be hosted by the Knysna Slot Car Club and will take the form of an inter-schools challenge with a selection of schools from the area taking part. The event will cater for both schools from in Knysna Town as well as schools from previously disadvantaged areas.
This will allow young children from all walks of life to experience the thrill of high speed motorsport based action - in many cases for the first time in their lives. It is the intention of the club to convert them into fans for life.
Participation is encouraged from all schools and scholars that have an interest in motorsport, slot cars or who are just curious. There is no charge for entry and slot cars will be provided.
The Knysna Slot Car Club, and its championship quality race track, is situated in the Oude Fabriek Building, Main Street, Knysna (above old Marine Pharmacy). Refreshments are available. The track is open from 14h00 hours to 17h00 on 16, 17 and 18 May.
