It’s time for the annual LA Sport 4x4 Show again, and this year’s event, on 23 and 24 May in Capital Park, Pretoria, promises to be more exciting than ever before. In addition to plenty of off-roading action on the in-house 4x4 trail, there will be plenty of music to create a suitably festive mood, while exhibitors will show anything from bakkie canopies, trailers, caravans and tents to exotic locations for you to visit with your freshly kitted-out off-roader.

You can start the day by watching the proceedings on the 4x4 track, where the latest in off-road technology will be showcased on LA Sport’s demonstration vehicles. Friendly experts will be on hand to explain new developments, and answer questions regarding off-road driving techniques or hardware.

Of course, a 4x4 show wouldn’t be complete without showing off the latest accessories and trends in the off-road market. Here the 2015 LA Sport 4x4 Show will live up to its promise: In addition to viewing the latest proprietary off-road accessories  from LA Sport, many external suppliers will also display their gadgets.

Once you have the off-roader of your dreams, and have kitted it out with all the accessories your heart could desire, there will be numerous stalls to entice you to visit places interesting destinations.
