The Gas Motorshow, held in June at the Suncoast Casino in Durban went off with a bang, drawing a 30 000-strong crowd of automotive enthusiasts and thrill-seekers alike.

The event showcased performances that kept attendees on the edge of their seats. International stunt sensation DiDi Bizzarro wowed the audience with a display that included “skiing” – driving a car on a pair of side wheels – his BMW sedan around the arena. Motul Athlete Jim McFarlane (XS Promotions), the current SA Red Bull Car Park Drift champion, thrilled fans with a spectacular drifting showcase that got the crowds on their feet, a testament to the growing popularity of drifting in SA. Adding to the adrenaline jolt, Jungle Rush collaborated with XS Promotions, blending freestyle motocross stunts with drifting feats, creating an unforgettable spectacle.

Beyond the adrenaline-fueled action, attendees enjoyed a variety of attractions, including a Sound-Off competition, immersive VR Race Simulators, and stunning exhibitions featuring some of the most impressive cars in the country – as more than 40% of the cars on display were brought in from outside KZN.

Motul, manufacturer of premium automotive and motorcycle fluids and lubricants including their flagship product 300V – a performance lubricant based on their unique ESTER Core technology – was there once again.  They  used the opportunity to not only showcase their diverse product ranges but also engage fans with live detailing sessions to demonstrate the performance of Motul’s Car Care range. They also used this key event to introduce their Shop-in-Shop concept, a retail environment to be rolled out  across SA to bring Motul’s sort-after merchandise, and until recently only available for purchase at select events, directly to the fans!

“It’s always an honour to be part of such a high-octane event. The Gas Motorshow brings together the best in automotive culture, and the energy from the crowd is electrifying.”

Commenting on the event, Jim McFarlane shared,

The Gas Motorshow 2024 not only celebrated automotive excellence but also set new benchmarks for future events, promising even more excitement and innovation in the years to come.
