What’s Included*

Five nights accommodation with breakfast included. Unwind each night in stunning Cape hotels, offering a blend of historic charm and modern luxury. Selected for their unique character and exceptional service, our choice of accommodation ensures you’ll be relaxed, recharged and ready to go the following morning.

Share your experiences with fellow participants as you are wined, dined and entertained in some of the best locations the Cape has to offer. Refuel with four evening meals, limited complimentary wine, daily light lunches, and take in the vistas from the most picturesque mobile coffee bar in Africa!

As an all-inclusive package, the Cape 1000 provides exclusive entry into Killarney Race Track, where participants get to put their cars through their paces and test their agility within the safety of a closed circuit.

We expect the entrant’s cars to be in fine fettle, but we anticipate the odd mechanical issue will arise. Should anything go wrong, our light mechanical support team will do what they can to get you back on the road or trailer your vehicle to the nearest mechanical workshop.

All participants receive a luxury goodie bag that will delight and surprise.

*Subject to change without notice


The main prize goes to the overall winner of the regulatory stages who will gain legendary status in the history of the Cape 1000.

The top 3 winners of the regulatory stages from each class will receive an award.

As determined by the participants, this is your chance to vote for the team you think captured the event’s spirit. The Spirit of the Cape 1000 prize is the one to win.

South Africa's Most Beautiful Drive

“The Cape 1000 in 2024 was the most epic driving experience I have ever participated in.  It shows off the hospitality and breathtaking landscape of South Africa. The participants are truly enjoyable, like-minded car enthusiasts. My son and will never forget this trip.”
