On this episode of the show, Faizal speaks to Igshaan Amlay, CEO of the Cape Town Grand Prix South Africa currently in consideration and planning. The discussion centres around the planning and inspiration behind the event.
Over 500 million viewers watch this Mega Event worldwide! It would return to the shores of South Africa annually! Not only would this event grow positive awareness of South Africa as a tourist destination but re-introduce motorsport to the African continent and at the same time create a sustainable legacy linked to hosting mega sports events.
The street circuit makes economic sense as it would continue to make use of the 2010 World Cup facilities, such as: Fan Walks, Transportation, Media Centres and most of all, our beautiful Cape Town Stadium on an annual basis!
Core to the Cape Town Grand Prix strategy is ensuring the ability to make this experience accessible to the many motoring fans in South Africa.
The proposed circuit location is situated within the Greenpoint Sport Precinct fondly known as “the African Riviera”
