The SupaDrift steering racks are all set up for the twists at Dezzi’s on Saturday.
THE SupaDrift Series 03 returns to Dezzi Raceway in Marburg on Saturday, providing drifting fans with the most affordable spectacle on the coast tomorrow and on Saturday.
Tickets at the gate cost R80 per adult and R50 for children.
After a wet and slippery leg at Killarney in Cape Town, the 2016 championship is still wide open and much of that will be decided upon during the weekend’s battle on what the racers all agree is the most scenic racetrack in SA, if not the world.
Mikey Skelton, XS Promotions marketer of the SupaDrift Series, said a driver who wins on Saturday is set to stay on top of the log for the rest of the series.
This means drivers like Zanil Satar heralding from Mozambique and Gauteng’s Jim McFarlane will bring the fight to local rider Shane Gutzeit.
But Gutzeit will be competing on the track his father built, and while he said he has a massive respect for his competitors, he is quitely confident.
Zein Hussein said all the drivers will push as hard as they can on the tight, technical track.
“No one can afford to rest, it’s the most competitive drift season yet and anything can happen; the initiation zone on the ‘rollercoaster’ is blind and off camber, we will have to be on point to impress the judges and keep the competition at bay … but when you get close to other competitors; anything can happen!” said Hussein.
