The Witness - Wheels - - FRONT PAGE -

THE Pavil­lion Shop­ping Cen­tre is host­ing “A State of Stance”, billed as KZN’s big­gest an­nual mo­tor­ing and life­style show.

The two-day mo­tor­ing spec­tac­u­lar brings to­gether a col­lec­tion of the world’s most ex­cit­ing mo­tor­ing en­ter­tain­ment on of­fer, both on the track and off.

Wheelie Bikes will en­ter­tain while push­ing the bound­aries of what’s pos­si­ble with as­tound­ing one-wheel an­tics. Trick bike cham­pion Brian Cap­per will take the skill of rid­ing to a new level on cus­tom ramps and rigs, along­side Drift Trike stunts and a meet and greet by Cap­per.

On four wheels the Land Rover Twin Ter­ra­pod as­tounds with a sur­real ob­sta­cle climb­ing dis­play, and rolling burnouts from Cus­tom Rat Rods push the oc­tane dial even higher.

KZN’s le­gendary spin pi­o­neer Reece Wil­liamson and mem­bers of the East Coast RC Drift Club will put their cus­tom ve­hi­cles through hair-rais­ing turns, hand­brakes locked and wheels slid­ing free.

Be­tween the roar of en­gines the SA Strong Man chal­lenge takes place, con­trast­ing metal with mus­cle.

Adding to off-track en­ter­tain­ment a su­per car ex­hi­bi­tion al­lows vis­i­tors to get up close to the most breath­tak­ing ve­hi­cles from all over South Africa, and the Dynos Sound Off pushes the lim­its of ve­hi­cle stereo sound in a fun-filled stereo ver­sus stereo bat­tle.

No speed fes­ti­val is com­plete with­out get­ting your hands dirty. Show or­gan­is­ers have laid on a can­vas of ve­hi­cles wait­ing to be sprayed in a splash of ve­hi­cle graf­fiti. And for the lit­tle ones, face paint­ing brings the colour home.

“We want to give the pub­lic the full mo­tor­ing ex­pe­ri­ence,” said event or­gan­iser Prethiven Naidoo. “A State of Stance is about value for money. We want vis­i­tors to not just watch but take part too. It’s a feast for the eyes and the heart.” said Naidoo.

“The Pavil­lion Shop­ping cen­tre has al­ways been fo­cused on fam­ily,” said gen­eral manger Nisha Kem­raj.

“In this sense A State of Stance is a high­light of the year for us, and for the fam­i­lies that flock to ex­pe­ri­ence it. We can’t wait to wel­come vis­i­tors to a truly out­stand­ing week­end.”

The show opens on Satur­day at 9 am, with the rock con­cert run­ning un­til 2 am, and the ac­tion re­sumes on Sun­day at 9 am and con­tin­ues to 5 pm.
