Cartorque Botswana in partnership with the international IBV supercar club will be bringing their finest cars to Botswana in May this year. Organisers of the event are going all out to ensure that it becomes a huge success. Joseph Kengera said that the Supercar Club is looking at opening a Botswana branch. “The feedback that they will get when here and the response is the one that will determine whether they should set a club in Botswana or not because that is what they want to do,” he said. Kengera said that they have realised that there are super car owners in Botswana and as such they want to bring them on board.
IBV supercars club has branches in Durban, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Zurich, London and Dubai, and if things go well Gaborone will soon join them. About 50 cars are expected to be displayed in Gaborone during the Expo. These include Ferrari’s, Lamborghinis’, Aston Martin’s, Roll Royce’s, Skyline GTR’s, Maserati’s and Porsche’s. Kengera said that they are very confident that Gaborone will prove itself to be a tourist destination and a better place to have another club, and that can only be made possible by the support of Batswana by coming to witness the first ever Diamond Run of supercars which is expected to be annual.
He said the IBV Super car club live and breathe by the philosophy that life is for living and there is no better way of living than local and international events packed with luxury, adventure and of course supercars. The event will start off as from 12 pm at a venue and date to be confirmed and run until 6pm. Advance tickets cost P100 while it will be P150 at the gate. He said that people shouldn’t think that is far but they should buy their tickets in order not to miss the adrenaline rush of seeing supercars live.
