SEMA WEEK: LIBERTY WALK
Posted: 26 September 2014 | Story & photos: Nish | Location: Las Vegas Convention Centre, USA.

Liberty Walk: Two words I heard many times before. I had seen the pictures of various Liberty Walk cars in the year preceding SEMA ... It really is an old cliché, but nothing can prepare you for the sheer insanity and detail of a Liberty Walk equipped car live and in person. Liberty Walk has been around since 1993 believe it or not. From Beemers to GT-R's to Lamborghinis and Ferrari's. These guys have really taken it to the next level. [more]


SEMA WEEK: CELEBS
Posted: 26 September 2014 | Story & photos: Nish | Location: Las Vegas Convention Centre, USA.

The oxford dictionary defines a celebrity as “a Famous person, especially in entertainment or sport” … or in the Automotive Industry. Ok, so I added the last bit. The craze of Reality TV Shows has definitely broadened the scope of what defines a celebrity. Almost like a cross between a well known individual and an entertainer. These are some of the celebrities we met at SEMA 2013.[more]


SEMA WEEK: AMERICAN (MUSCLE) CARS
Posted: 25 September 2014 | Story & photos: Nish | Location: Las Vegas Convention Centre, USA.

I hated American Muscle, wait, that's a strong word reserved for VW's for me. Prior to SEMA, I had a strong dislike for American Muscle. The cars are big, bulky, noisy, heavy on fuel, fast in a straight line only and can't turn to save their owners lives. 4 Days later at a crazy car show and I was in love. [more]


SEMA WEEK: THE BABES OF SEMA
Posted: 25 September 2014 | Story & photos: Nish | Location: Las Vegas Convention Centre, USA.

Having been to many motor shows, including the Bangkok motor show, we are no strangers to hot ladies in skimpy outfits, springing into poses when they see a camera. But most of us will just never get over it lol. I have never heard any man say something like, "I have had enough of these show girls". It just won't happen. Unless he's saying it in front of his wife that is. [more]


SEMA WEEK: JDM (JAPANESE CARS)
Posted: 24 September 2014 | Story and photos by: Nish | Location: Las Vegas Convention Centre, USA.

Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) - my favourite three words in car culture. Now before the purists start to fill the Racemaster's inbox with hate mail, let me explain. When I say JDM, it doesn't meant cars built in Japan, neither does it doesn't mean cars built as most Japanese would - Mostly function over form, it just means cars from Japanese origin, OK!?

SEMA WEEK: 86'S
Posted: 23 September 2014 | Story: Nicholas Abrahams | Photos: Nish | Location: Las Vegas Convention Centre, USA.

Being a massive Toyota fan made searching for 86’s at Sema only but a pleasure. The problem was that they were like last year, all over the place. I don’t think another vehicle at this year’s show was as well represented once again. Nothing was left to the imagination when it came to the possibilities of this vehicle. Some of this fast growing cult car were seen in just stylish takkies heavily attracted to the earth, many others had more time to put makeup on and then there were the monsters. [more]


SEMA WEEK: WHAT A SHOW! (GENERAL OVERVIEW)
Posted: 22 September 2014 | Story and photos by: Nish | Location: Las Vegas Convention Centre, USA.

Over this next week we will be bringing you all the content we managed to capture from this amazing event, one day at a time. We will showcase all the maddest vehicles displayed at the show from insane 86's to Liberty Walk's Ferrari 458 and more. But first, let me take (not a selfie) you on this SEMA trip from the beginning which is the general overview of the show. Enjoy... [more]


BEHIND THE SCENES WITH BE DRIVEN: DRIFT SHOOT + VIDEO
Posted: 18 September 2014 | Story: RaceMasteR J | Photos: Chevan "Vaano" Davids | Venue: Killarney International Raceway

I’ve watched thousands of car videos from short clips and series to full length movies and documentaries and like me, I’m sure you can relate to that. But it was only up until recently when I was tasked to spearhead our own local motoring show, Be Driven. Coming from a web/editorial and mostly photographic background, my knowledge of the car scene was vast but it needed to be applied in a slightly different way this time, TV. [more]


SUPER CIVIC: THE FASTEST HONDA IN CAPE TOWN + VIDEO
Posted: 17 September 2014 | Story & photos: RaceMasteR J

R. A letter in the English alphabet which on its own doesn’t really mean much. Add that simple letter to the back of a car and viola, you immediately have something special. We’ve seen it on so many cars already from Nissan’s GTR, Audi and Porsche’s RS, Toyota’s RSi and notably Honda’s Type R. But up until about 10 years ago there weren’t any real Honda Type R’s for sale, besides the imports. South Africans were yet again deprived, like with so many other things the original Type R being one of them. [more]

Posted: 03 September 2014 | Press release

With top former European F3 driver Sam Dejonghe on a fleeting visit to the Cape for just one race meeting, Saturday’s Mutlu Batteries Classic Car events at Killarney could be one of the highlights of the Power Series sponsored by Wingfield Motors. The young Belgium driver already had one F3 championship victory to his name in the current season, when he decided on a switch to sports car racing. He will be at the wheel of Jan-Willem de la Porte’s specially prepared, powerful Chev CanAm V8 this weekend and it is going to be interesting to see how he performs against... [more]


REGIONAL RACE MEET 12 JULY 2014 - WHAT TO LOOK FORWARD TO
Posted: 10 July 2014 | Press release

Ernie “Lightning“ Leite and Superbike star Ronald Slamet are two northern suburbs competitors who are expected to shoot the lights out during the fifth round of the Wingfield Motors Power Series at Killarney on Saturday. Anyone who braved the wintery conditions during the most recent meeting will agree that In addition to the exciting racing, the refreshing manner in which it emphasized the talent of certain drivers who for various reasons are often mechanically challenged and outclassed on a dry surface – was another hugely positive feature.
