Vodacom Durban July / Durban RSA / 2 - 3 July 2016

It sneaks up on you and spreads like wildfire to soon engulf the entire country. You don’t know you’ve got it till you start searching for more and more information and the desire for greater knowledge becomes a passion.
It is the annual outbreak of “July Fever” which makes its regular appearance in mid-April and grows in intensity as the days pass, becoming a national epidemic and rejecting all known cures but one.

That cure will become available on the afternoon of the first Saturday of July at Greyville Racecourse in Durban when South Africa’s best thoroughbreds storm down the home straight to the finish of the R3,5 million, Grade 1 Vodacom Durban July.

The cure is instantaneous, whether you are among the 55 000 people who cram the confines of Greyville Racecourse or the millions of others who will watch the annual spectacle on television.

For maximum effect, however, there is nothing better than to be at the heart of the excitement, among the crowds who line the track, who relax in the many restaurant facilities or enjoy the day as guests in the corporate suites and the numerous venues in Greyville’s legendary Marquee Village.

Most facilities are booked out months in advance but the “Sold Out” signs should not deter those who have failed to secure reservations. There will always be the casual restaurants including Greyville’s popular al fresco area, “The Paddock”, in the main grandstand concourse and the popular Shorthead Restaurant on the first floor.

A variety of packages are also available in hospitality areas throughout Greyville Racecourse and these should be secured in advance.
For the more casual racegoer there will be bars and food vendors throughout the course serving a wide variety of meal options. Of particular mention is the Red Carpet area which was introduced in 2014 and which, after rave revues, will be back again this year. This casual but posh area is located on the golf course just behind the stage which is in the vicinity of the finish.

J&B Met / Cape Town RSA

From day one J&B’s story has been about the different and unexpected coming together and creating something rare. It all started with the young and adventurous Justerini & Brooks who came together and broke the mould and gave the world a whisky blended from 36 Malt & 6 Grain whiskies. A whisky that stood apart from the rest in a bold green bottle with a bright yellow label, a whisky that has rolled with rockers and rocked with royals. It is this spirit that sits at the heart of J&B and inspires us to look at the world around us and see that the rare can be created by those bold enough to break with convention and bring together that which is different and unexpected.
