With an additional day of motoring excitement added, the 2019 Festival of Motoring proudly presented by WesBank, is just a few hours away from kick off. Regarded as the biggest motoring event on the African continent, the event, which takes place at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit, will see the coming together of motoring industry partners, petrol heads and the general public from 22 to 25 August.

WesBank will be launching its new digital journey at this year’s event under the theme ‘Fastest Finance Ever’. One of the components of this journey is a digital application that provides consumers with a quick and seamless method of applying for vehicle finance, comprising only five required data fields and providing an immediate outcome with further financial guidance on their application.

“As the country’s leading vehicle and asset finance provider we are excited to introduce our new digital journey at the Festival of Motoring, as well as our renewed three-year agreement of the largest and most prestigious motoring event of its kind in South Africa”, says WesBank Head of Motor, Ghana Msibi.

“Our new online application will revolutionise how consumers apply for vehicle finance, as well as how dealers interact with customers during the car buying journey. This is by far the fastest finance offered by WesBank, allowing for quality leads for our valued dealers and an increase in business prospects for our OEMs”, says Msibi.

The Festival of Motoring caters for both those who see cars as a practical solution for their transport needs and the more passionate crowd who want their vehicles to support their lifestyles and interests. The event is loaded with fun activations including kids’ zones, a braai area, and much more, making it a perfect family outing.

Visitors can expect an interactive showcase of both active and static content including supercars, classic cars and historic and modern motorsport activations, with a range of brand-new cars being showcased. They can also engage with leading industry-related aftermarket and accessory companies, as well as WesBank at its stand inside the Galleria.
