Finally the Mother City can boast a motor show that will rival any of the international equivalents, hosted in a safe and conducive environment with an expected audience of more than 25 000 over the three days of the CTMS. The show will span the length and breadth of the Sun GrandWest Entertainment World, including the Market Hall, Grand Arena, the Sun Exhibit area, the Sun Park area, outdoor 4X4 areas, drifting zone, bike zone, and Classic and Vintage.

“All the finest cities in the world have one: Frankfurt, Paris, Tokyo, Dubai and New York, to name a few. So it was only a matter of time before Cape Town, would have one.” said CTMS spokesperson Garth Rhoda “ Our team is very much looking forward to this experience”.

Claire Cobbledick, Marketing manager of Gumtree, who are one of the many partners in the CTMS said “Cape Town is a core Gumtree market and we enjoy the most visited online showroom in SA so this partnership was a perfect fit for the brand. We look forward to this inaugural event.’
