The SLAMMER track build by Chris Willemse Online/ Contego / Sludge is situated next to the Willowbridge Shopping Centre. The venue already has the reputation of being safe, easy accessible and with trails ranging from easy to ‘not for the faint hearted’!
The venue is one of the few venues countrywide that lies within the city boundaries with great facilities on its doorstep. The Willowbridge Shopping Centre provides nearby safe
parking, shopping and bathroom facilities, the Bellville City Lodge can be used for accommodation less than 4km away from the track and Chris Willemse Online Cycle
store is right there for all your cycling needs!
Bryan Strauss and his team of volunteers worked very hard and while designing, creating and building this track – it was always kept in mind to bring cycling to the
public, make it easy to access, provide trails of different levels for different riders and easy viewable from several shops, restaurants and buildings in the area.
Apart from the racing track, the venue also provides ample space for the team technical areas, sponsor display areas, team areas etc….
The track is partially built on the site where the old Jail was situated and mostly make use of the area that years before were the gardens of the jail. Cyclists doing the full course will pass the quarry where inmates had to ‘earn their dinner’ by smashing rocks into smaller pieces . . . hopefully they won’t be doing the same!
Willowbridge Shopping Centre provide ample parking space that is outside as well as underground, please note that the different parking areas are either free or charged at a standard tariff. No parking directly in front of the Chris Willemse Cycling Store will be allowed as this is reserved for Race Directors, Medics and General Set-Up.
