The Pit Bull International Xtreme Motor Show
For seven days only, from 18-21 April, and from 26-28 April, at 11am and 2pm.

Danilo Cogrossi is an international master of showmanship, creating awe-inspiring high-diving shows, ice-skating shows, acrobatics displays and even dolphin shows. His high-octane stunt shows have travelled all over the world. Now, for the first time in South Africa, Danilo presents the Pit Bull International Xtreme Motor Show, a stunt show that's more than just a display of extreme motoring, but blends comedy and acrobatic agility into an entertaining package perfect for the whole family.

Joining Danilo is Simone Bonelli, a daredevil stunt man and stunt driver, and the comedian of the show. Brothers Didi and Manuel Bizzarro are equally at home behind the wheel or on the back of a stunt motorbike. Seasoned stunt driver Matteo Andreella rounds off the motor-stunt side of the team. Acrobat Tetiana Kalashnikova is the beautiful and super-agile member of the team, and will add her special brand of graceful contortions to the show.

Driving BMW 318i's and stunt motorbikes, they'll delight audiences with their twice-daily shows full of impressive stunts and two-wheel ramping.

From 22-25 April, from 10am to 3pm and 4-6pm.

Get a taste of the blistering rear-wheel driving flair, 'slideways' motions and serious speed that are all part and parcel of the world's fastest growing motorsport - drifting.

Brave Rand Show visitors can take a 'suicide ride', hitching a ride on the track with a pro-drift driver, to experience for themselves the heart-pounding thrill of drifting.

For R150 per person, visitors get to jump into the 6.0-litre, V8, rear-wheel drive 'Speed & Sound Barloworld GM' Chevrolet SS Luminas and let pros like local daredevil drifting stunt driver, Jim McFarlane, show them how it's done.
