  • The statistics

Located 25 kilometers from Johannesburg, it was inaugurated in 1962. It is very fast and requires cars with top speed qualities. Its location at 1500 meters above sea level on high plateaus poses fuel-related challenges, but it brings joy to turbo-compressed engines in their battle against naturally aspirated engines. In 1985, it was removed from the calendar due to Apartheid policies.
It returned in 1992 and 1993 with a new layout, shortcuts, and a much slower and winding track.
.
In 1968, the track is widened.
