15 Aug 2019

Johannesburg, 15 August 2019 - Puma Energy is pleased to confirm its fuel sponsorship of the upcoming Festival of Motoring from 22nd – 25th August 2019. 

This is the second year that Puma Energy, the global integrated midstream and downstream energy company, has been named as the official fuel sponsor of the annual motoring extravaganza, taking place at Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit in Midrand.

The sponsorship, which represents Puma Energy’s growing involvement in South Africa since it entered the market in 2015, secures supply of fuel for all participants at the Festival of Motoring, as it does across much of the African continent through its retail, wholesale and B2B operations.

This year, Puma Energy is extending its sponsorship beyond South Africa’s borders by inviting customers and stakeholders from its other markets on the continent including Malawi, Tanzania, Namibia, Lesotho and Botswana.

Festival of Motoring activities for the whole family include two flyovers by the Puma-sponsored Flying Lions Aerobatic Team, Kyalami track tour experiences with Puma Energy road safety ambassador, Phillip Kekana, a biker’s concourse and a BOUNCEinc kiddies trampoline zone.

The 2019 Festival of Motoring will provide interactive motoring entertainment with lifestyle, education and family-friendly activities for a more comprehensive motoring experience than ever before.

Puma Energy, together with road safety ambassador and South Africa’s first black production car racing champion, Phillip Kekana, will host a road safety workshop for primary school children.

This year’s Festival of Motoring also welcomes Eghosa Oriaikhi Mabhena who joined Puma Energy on 1 July 2019 as CEO of Puma Energy Africa.

As the official fuel sponsor of the Festival of Motoring, Puma Energy continues to be at the forefront of South Africa’s motor racing future.  This sponsorship further provides an opportunity for Puma Energy to empower youth and drive road safety preparedness to keep our future generations safe.
