Cambees Midas Round 2 – International Flavour

June 4, 2013 in Other

If there is one thing that was established this weekend was that drifters never say die. The Rock Raceway hosted the second round of the Midas Drift Championship on Saturday 2 June 2013. What better experience than that of a local and international field of drifters to provide some interesting competition.

Drivers fought against the clock to get their cars prepped and ready for the event. Some cut it closer than others but managed to get the job done so that the fans would be able to see an interesting field of competitors. Some familiar faces returned to the track as well, which was pleasant to see.

Japan Auto Series: The Second Installment

April 8, 2013 in Japan Auto

The second round of the Japan Auto Series for 2013 unfolded this past weekend at The Rock Raceway in Brakpan. A strong field of 25 cars entered the day’s proceedings but only a few would walk away from the thrills and spills that lay ahead.

The Japan Auto Series is known to be THE place to start competitive drifting with a Silver Cup being the norm for drivers who are less experienced to get some valuable tandem training. Many of the bigger names have cut their teeth in this series and some still compete, making it a smorgasbord of drifting variation and talent.

The tight and technical track may have been somewhat slower than what we have seen so far this year but this made for some very close, door-to-door tandems. Read the rest of this entry →

SupaDrift 02 – The Monstermob Mash

April 2, 2013 in SupaDrift

Monstermob Raceway is notorious for putting on an Easter weekend show that can rival the best. It’s a staple on the motorsport calendar every year and this year it had a little more to offer than usual.

Usually there is a drifting event held in conjunction with the spinning, show and shine and sound off that takes place during daylight hours, and DJ sets that filter through the night. This year though, for the first time ever, the SupaDrift series made Kimberley and its oversized hole in the earth their second stop on the 2013 calendar.

It was great to see that the success of the first round, with a record number of entries, carried over to the second round with a 35 car strong field – despite missing a few of the names we were hoping to see in action. Read the rest of this entry →
