The circuit’s name, Kyalami, which comes from the word “Khaya lami” means “my home” in Zulu, one of South Africa’s eleven national languages. With a length of 4.522 kilometres, the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit still retains a section of the original circuit from when it was originally opened in 1961.
