Highlights include the Pre66 Legends of the 9-Hour saloon car class, which will feature no less than 14 American V8 muscle and pony cars. A Plymouth Fury. Three Ford Galaxies. A Chevrolet Bel-Air and Biscayne. Four Ford Mustang Fastbacks. These are just some of the multi-cylindered behemoths confirmed for the grid.

Another big drawcard will come in the form of a classic Formula 1 demonstration. Radical racers from a bygone era, this niche field will include a Ferrari 643, Benetton B194 and Dallara 191. For more info click over to www.zwartkops.co.za
