Covid and the applicable restrictions have had a major impact on the staging of the Knysna motor show (KMS) and has again this year tested our resourcefulness and patience . As you are aware the KMS had to be cancelled for 2020 and 2021. This has been extremely disappointing as it would have been fantastic to showcase the greatest automobiles again in Knysna. With the government restrictions, limiting outdoor gatherings to 2000 people, still being in place , and with the new virus, Omicron , having surfaced, a fourth wave could be imminent . The future staging of the KMS thus remains unclear. We are however hopeful that conditions will improve at the beginning of 2022 and have set the date of May 1,2022 for the KMS to be held. However the staging of the show will have to take into account what Covid restrictions remain in place , the level of interest from participants and to what extent sponsorships can be secured. A final decision to go ahead with the KMS on May 1 or cancel the show again will be made in conjunction with the Garden Route Motor Club at the end of January 2022 . In this regards all parties will be kept updated once we have greater clarity. Another difficult year has gone and we are all hoping for some form of normality in 2022. With the festive season upon us , we wish you season greetings and may you have an enjoyable and relaxed time with your family and friends .
Kind regards, Peter.: Knysna motor show Chairman
