Regular price R 795.00 Sale

The result of 26 years of exhaustive research by author André Loubser, Kyalami The Book is a must for anyone interested in the spectacular history of the original Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit in South Africa.

Its 411 pages and 1 180 photos provide a definitive history of the original circuit which drew up to 100 000 spectators for the SA Grands Prix, the 9 Hour endurance races and its derivatives.

Besides documenting the races that took place at Kyalami (with some incredibly rare photography) from 1961 to 1987, Kyalami The Book also details the birth of motorsport in South Africa -a "motoring tournament" held at the Green Point Cycle Track in Cape Town in 1903 - and includes a DVD with 80 minutes of rare footage of; the 1969 Republic Day Race, 1969 SA Grand Prix, 1975 SA Grand Prix prize-giving speeches, four laps of on-board footage with Derek Bell in a Porsche 956 and three laps with Alain Prost in a F1 Renault taken during practice for the 1983 SA Grand Prix. 

An ideal gift for the serious collector.
