Wheels, wine and biltong galore

07 June 2018 | Events

The Standard Bank Autoshow and Biltongfees promises to be bigger and better, when it returns for its 25th instalment in August.

Standard Bank's manager for vehicle asset financing, Cecelia Hagen-Cloete, said many budding motorists should look forward to this year's show, which will have a new look and feel to entice petrol heads.

“We have a new name, look and feel. We have also given it a new face and created a logo that embodies a festival feel,” Hagen-Cloete said.

Wine aficionados will also be spoilt for choice, as African Marketing, one of the sponsors, will host premium wine estates.

“This year, African Marketing will host 13 premium wine estates at the event, allowing tasting of the best bouquets on the market, while there will be a mouth-watering selection of foods prepared by the Nederduitse Gereformeerde Kerk, which should tantalise taste buds,” said Hagen-Cloete.

This year's festivities will be hosted at the Trustco Sports Fields in Olympia, owing to the demand for bigger space on the expo, she explained.

Tickets to the motor show and biltongfees are available via WebTicket. Adults can expect to pay N$80, while children pay N$40. There is even a family combo available for two adults and two children at N$200.

The event is made possible by the support of Motovac, African Marketing, Kickstart Namibia, Arebbusch Travel Lodge, Kosmos Radio and Rent-A-Drum.
