Kyalami Nine Hour Date To Move

Date shift to avoid Rugby World Cup Final clash

The planned date for the Kyalami Nine Hour, part of the 2019 Intercontinental GT Challenge is set to be moved to avoid a clash with the Rugby World Cup.

The planned date, 1/3 November, will now be filled by the planned GT Festival at Vallelunga, which, subject to FIA approval will encompass the second edition of the FIA GT Nations Cup as well as a GT4 enduro season finale to replace the event initially planned at Spa the weekend before the 2019 Spa 24 Hours.

The Kyalami 9 Hour will now take place three weeks later on the final Saturday of the same month (23 November). This will avoid a clash with the 2019 Rugby World Cup Final, a key date on the South African sporting calendar.
