this is the event that wrapped up the
2014 season of racing at Killarney Raceway.
We saw a lot of upcountry visitors, especially
from the friendly Eastern Cape Region
and a few others. The racing was tight,
the weather was hot, and the crowd was
packed to the max. Not a bad day out for
us petrol heads. Here's some quick hightlights
and dont forget to check out the full

this is the time of year when everyone
is tired and we all can’t wait for
leave to kick in for December Holidays.
levels are normally the lowest in December,
but somehow we always end up with the
most amount of work to do in what’s
always the shortest span of time.Trackside
December is no different, with RACEWEB
just coming off Saldahna Drags, in December
it’s always Jam Packed. [more]
Drags - where whoever crosses the finish
line first, doesn’t necessarily
win! This race is all about speed. It’s
about laying down as much rubber off the
start line just to cross the finish line
with a higher top speed. Now some of you
who are new to this will not understand
that. Even though it’s still a race,
there’s so much more to factor in.
This isn’t quarter mile racing,
no, that’s a race against the clock,
this, was a #rideforglory!
a kaleidoscope of motorsport attractions
on offer, Saturday’s final main
circuit meeting of the year at Killarney
includes exciting national participation
and seems set to bring the seasonal curtain
down in style. Topping the bill, the opening
round of the new All-Africa Endurance
Series is going to be supported by the
final leg of the Power Series sponsored
by Wingfield Motors. In addition, in a
buildup to an attempt on the African truck
pulling record, local muscle man Ben Visagie
is ready to attempt to drag a 20 ton truck
a distance of 50 metres along the Killarney

time ago I
wrote about the latest wave to sweep
across parking lots around the world.
It’s something that’s been
around since the inception of the car
but of late been revived to unbelievable
truth be told this is still not my cup
of java but after the very well put together
KING OF SLAM event I can definitely see
Wingfield Motors Power Series regional
racing is one of the best events to attend
and watch as a spectator and I was going
to be taking pics like anyone else would,
behind the fence. If you’re an accredited
Motorsport South Africa photographer you
can get real close to the cars on track,
but today, I didn’t feel like walking.

Location:Killarney Raceway, Cape Town.
seeing some teaser pics on social media
many people asked me what happened at
Killarney on this day. Well it was the
Dunlop Track Day, which was a private
event meant for special Dunlop customers
who were to be treated by being taken
around Killarney in either a supercar
of some sort or a drift machine. I
didn’t actually go to the supercar
side which was along the back straight
of Killarney, instead I decided to camp
out at the oval by the drift...

Serepta Sports Field, Kuilsriver, Cape Town.
few months back we were invited to attend
the first ever Toyota Fest in Cape Town.
Looking at the date however, it was going
to take a bit of shuffling to be able
to attend due to a few other big events
happening on the same day. But being big
Toyota fans ourselves, and owning our
mascot, Polizia, which we’ve put
into retirement, we decided to remove
the covers, blow out all the dust from
our Toy and attend what would potentially
be a world record event.

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]
