Upcoming event: Street 2 Strip, 1 February 2013

Admission R35 per person, under 12 FREE
Entries from +-5.30pm, limited to the first 200 entries only. On track from +-7pm till +-10.30pm
So if you or anyone you know has ever wanted to put their streetcar onto the Killarney main straight this is the perfect opportunity.
Want to know more:
• Entries (main gate caravan – times above) – show SA Drivers license and complete required paperwork / indemnity. R20 admin fee to participate on the track, this excludes your ticket to get into the facility.
• Vehicle check (go around Turn 5 and turn right into back of scrutineering building) – all wheel bolts required, battery must be fastened down properly and everything must be in general good working order. Required safety gear include long pants & top, closed shoes and SABS approved type crash helmet.
• NOTE: Always drive slowly on the access roads and circuit while not participating.
• Vehicles that have run quicker than a 13 second run are not permitted at Street2Strip events for safety reasons.
The idea of the Street2Strip events is to provide the facility at a nominal fee to street racers who are racing in and around Cape Town. As there will be no formal competition and this is aimed purely at the Street racers, no competition license will be required however indemnities will have to be completed. The timing lights will be in place however there will be no results posted nor prizes awarded at the end of the evening.
This event is aimed specifically at the streetcar street racers with RSA driver’s licenses. So with that in mind there will be no motorcycles on the evening, no interruptions from the Club drag competitors, just a queue of streetcars wanting to take one another on down the strip. As we are planning to have many more of these types of events we are aware of noise pollution laws, we will not allow any vehicle even moderately too loud after 9pm. This includes some drifting practice at the oval side of the circuit when approved to run. So if you have an after-market exhaust, don’t worry unless it is very noisy. Straight through exhaust will have a problem so please do be aware of the situation.
(Please note that rain could cause the event to be delayed, cancelled or postponed. Unfortunately there are no refunds and right of admission is reserved. Times could also change as the organizers see fit to do so if required.)

13-01-26 Street 2 Strip

A quiet day at the office today, not quite a packed house but some quality cars non the less. Almost off the bat a Golf (what else) dropped gearbox oil all over the right lane making it extremely slippery for the next few competitors, thankfully that was the only breakage on the line. Most of the cars running today where pretty fast all thing considered, that said I don’t recall anyone breaking the 13s barrier and getting sent home (except maybe the Pro-Fit “Gonda”). The stand out car for me had to be the black Golf 6 R, awesome car running awesome times. Anyway, onto the pics…
