12-01-22 Timour Hall Classic Car & Bike Show

My son and I went through to the Vintage day at the Timour Hall Classic Car & Bike Show for a couple of hours this afternoon. It didn’t take any convincing to get him to come with me today but as we arrived he asked me, “do you know why I wanted to come with… ice-cream”… lol. We had a great time checking out the cars and bikes and he definitely enjoyed his ice-cream, onto the pics…

12-01-21 Timour Hall Classic Car & Bike Show

With a promise of an ice-cream I managed to convince my son to come with me to day 1 of this year’s Timour Hall Classic Car & Bike Show. Initially his favourite was a grey Capri (2nd pic below) but that soon changed when he saw the blue Trans Am with it’s “Cool Eagle”, lol. With tomorrow promising more hot weather, head on over to day 2 of the show and enjoy a boerewors roll and a cold one… or two… and maybe I’ll see you there…

11-12-18 Scooby Fest

High up on my list of cars I’d like to own one day is a bugeye STI so whenever there’s a Subaru track day I try to make a turn to catch a glimpse of the car that’ll be sitting in my garage one day. Pulling up to the new pits area this afternoon I’m greeted by a sea of Subaru’s sporting sticky semis and the sound of screeching tyres and heavily modified boxer motors screaming round the track. For a Sunday there weren’t any Sunday drivers out today but without a doubt, while I was there anyway, the fastest car around the track had to be the Matt Black Cool Bananas monster. I believe there was a monster black Evo competing for top honors but unfortunately by the time I got there had been sidelined with what I believe was a blown head gasket. Anyway… onto the pics…

11-12-10 Wings & Wheels

I spent a good few hours walking around Ysterplaat Air Force base yesterday, the venue of this weekend’s well organised Wings & Wheels show. Taking in the planes and cars around the base it was nice to see cars speeding up and down the runway. Hopefully this leads to more airstrip action 😉 Anyway for now, enjoy the pics and forgive the dust spots 😳

11-11-19 Wrapmaster/Cool Bananas park-off

Photofreak (me ;)) stopped in at the Wrapmaster/Cool Bananas park-off today to bring you some of the what goes down when petrol heads come out to play. With plenty of hot cars and hot ladies in attendance it seemed like mother nature was feeling a little left out so she decided to bring a little heat of her own…

SEFAC Giro Del Capo tour hits the track

Sunday saw the conclusion of the 2011 SEFAC Giro Del Capo with a track day at Killarney. As I enter the pit area I’m blown away by the number of Ferrari’s, there where more Ferrari’s there than the total number of cars at the average Killarney track day… it was insane to see. The colour, the craftsmanship… and the noise, everything a petrolhead could ask for. Sadly, with a limited amount of time, I couldn’t capture as much of the day as I’d liked, but I had to share the sea of red that was Killarney on Sunday… enjoy
