Press Release March 17 2020

Following our President’s speech and the announcement regarding the Corona Virus (COVID-19) being identified as a National State of Disaster, we are heeding the call to work together to ensure containment of the virus and playing our part in promoting social distancing. Therefore, LW Mag would like to formally announce that King of the Whip will be postponed to a later date in the year.
The health and safety of our riders, crew, event goers and the South African public is of paramount importance during this time. We are working with our team and event partners on a new event date, which will be announced as soon as we are in a position to do so. All of our event partners (PringlesMonster EnergyPlayStation and Motul) remain committed to bringing King of the Whip to life.
For those that have already purchased tickets, they will remain valid for the new King of the Whip date.
For any queries, please email
We thank you for your understanding, wish you all good heath during this time and we will see you soon at Montecasino for #KingoftheWhip 2020.
