Plenty of thrills and spills for motor enthusiasts this weekend

MOTORING enthusiasts will have lots to see and do this weekend.

The Petrolhead Paradise Moto Show is once again set to rip up the tarmac in Nelson Mandela Bay, starting today until Monday at Moffett on Main Lifestyle Shopping Centre.

Business opportunities and the community play a big part this year and a permanent underground F1 go-karting facility has been set up in the basement of the centre.

The karting arena will be launched at the opening of the show today.

This year the race is on to help St Francis Hospice and the organisers, in association with the shopping centre, are running a Father’s Day competition to raise funds.

Fathers are invited to the shopping centre tomorrow and on Sunday, ready to rev it up in their favourite racing gear or colours between 11am and 1pm and have their photos taken for R20. Proceeds raised will be given to the hospice.

In addition, the Mainstream Crew will also be donating R10 per car to the campaign from their park-off. Those with the top three winning photos will walk away with great prizes.

Other charities the event is supporting this year are the Eco-Brick Foundation in Walmer township, Samrec and “I Wear Red Socks on Fridays” that supports partially hearing children in Nelson Mandela Bay.

The weekend is filled with loads of entertainment for the whole family.

Breakaway activities include stock car racing at Victory Raceway and 4×4 experiences at Eastern Cape Motors in William Moffett Expressway.

Father’s Day will be celebrated in style with brandy and cognac tasting in the Millionaires Boy Club as well as a comedy show in the evening with Roland Gaspar.
