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]

Event date: 16-18 May 2014 | Words: RaceMasteR J | Photos: RaceMasteR J & Nishaam Ebrahim | Location: Simola Golf Estate.

The beautiful town of Knysna, whom for the fifth time, were the hosts of the resident Knysna Speed Festival also known as the Knysna/Simola Hill Climb… 1.9km’s of high speed uphill racing against the clock, a test of pure nerve and superb driving skill. After their title sponsor pulled out in 2013, the town was left in its restful manner but come 2014, the organizers managed to secure a big fish of a sponsor, or rather, a big cat… Jaguar! With a glorious history and heritage of racing, this brand was the perfect fit to this event. With a massive banner hanging over the start line that states “Racing is in our blood”, Jaguar came to impress. [more]

TOYOTA 86 TURBO WIDEBODY
Posted: 11 June 2014 | Story: Nicholas Abrahams | Photos: RaceMasteR J & Chevan Davids

Since the conception of the Toyota 86 it has grown in just over the last two years to become an almost overnight cult classic. Development is happening in almost every major motoring nation across the globe and it was very apparent at SEMA 2013. We saw more than 50 examples of the 86 last year in literally all shapes, colours and race code readiness. The aftermarket gods are truly smiling on this car but reality kicked in and I realised that the conservative South African market would take years to get to this level if at all. [more]

UPCOMING EVENT: POWERSERIES ROUND 4
PRESS RELEASE | Posted: 09 June 2014

The fourth round of the Power Series at Killarney on Saturday includes an unusual entry from Bellville’s national champion Kosie Weyers in a bottom of the range class C Golf 1 in the Jive VW GTi Challenge, that is certain to increase the attraction of this exciting category, regardless of the weather conditions. But while Weyers will bring the best out of class C drivers like Paul Simon and Craig du Toit at the lower end of the field, the headline class A battle between Nian du Toit, Christopher Swart and Durbanville star Stiaan Kriel, could be even closer. With the Midas magicians having had time to recover from the chaos that characterized the first Clubman race during the third round of the title chase, it’s going to be a case of “Deutschland Uber Alles,” at the head of the field.
