Ma­chines, su­per­bikes, a whole lot of fun and a new Namib­ian record!

Team RMC of Namibia with Speed & Sound hosted 16 fast cars from South Africa at the re­cent ‘ DRAG WARS’ held at an air­field in Oka­handja on Satur­day 23 July 2016.

This was the third in­stall­ment of this amaz­ing cross-bor­der saga be­tween Namibia and South Africa and, quite fit­tingly, took three months to plan and or­gan­ise.

As you can prob­a­bly judge by these pho­tos taken on the day, both the com­peti­tor and spec­ta­tor turn- out was fan­tas­tic and the day was jam­packed with drag- rac­ing ac­tion, in­clud­ing a brand- new Namib­ian record! But more of that later...

The event saw of­fi­cial “Na­tion­als leg 4" and pri­va­teers com­pete to­gether with an im­pres­sive line-up of cars from South Africa and was crowned by a Speed ‘ n Sound scout­ing at Wind­hoek’s Ac­tion Arena in the evening of the same day. The well­known South African mag­a­zine was scout­ing for feature rides to in­clude in fu­ture edi­tions. There were some se­ri­ously fast cars, and DRAG WARS was even graced by ex­pen­sive su­per­cars - in­clud­ing a Mclaren and Nis­san GT-R! And let’s not for­get the line-up of su­per­bikes that also com­peted.

One of the event’s main or­gan­is­ers, Team RMC, shared this with us:

“So the day fi­nally ar­rived yes­ter­day. Af­ter three months of plan­ning we could make Drag Wars hap­pen. The third and very spe­cial in­stall­ment. 5. The first Namib­ian ever to run a 10 se­cond quar­ter-mile.

6. The first time a Namib­ian driver puts up the fastest time of the day.

Huge Con­grat­u­la­tions to De Waal The­unis­sen on your 10.4 se­cond run!

And a big thank you to our South African guests, the Speed and Sound crew, our Namib­ian Race Team, our spon­sors and part­ners, spec­ta­tors, sup­port­ers and most of all, Team RMC for mak­ing this hap­pen!”

Smit Biz would like to thank Team RMC, Speed & Sound, 1FM, Mon­ster En­ergy for this amaz­ing event!
