It was with great pleasure that we, EQUIPMENT AFRICA, were contracted by Mercedes AMG South Africa at the SA Festival of Motoring at Kyalami Race Track. This took place from Tuesday the 30th of August 2016 to Sunday 4th of September 2016.

Our duties were to change the tyres and balance them for the track AMG cars as well as the GT3 race car brought over from Germany and driven by none other than David Coulthard and Mercedes AMG Test Driver Reinhold Renger. We were asked to help the Mercedes 4×4 team when they encountered a few punctures on the 4×4 track.

Our team was at the track from 06:00 to 22:00 every day to ensure that the cars were ready for action.

Clint Weston and his team of drivers from the Mercedes AMG driving academy were very pleased with our workmanship and prompt responses to any work that needed to be done for them.


Dear Calvin

As you experienced, the show was very well attended which in turn kept us extremely busy with our cars on the 4×4/handling/test drives and race track. Without your professionalism, attitude, willingness and dedication it would not have been possible.

Once again thank you for your hard work and effort over the period of this event, it was amazing!!

Greatly appreciated from all at Mercedes-Benz SA and the AMG Driving Academy Team..

Kindest Regards
Clint Weston
Head – AMG Driving Academy
