WHEELS is col­lab­o­rat­ing with KZN’s top driv­ers to host four events in KZN’s in­te­rior dur­ing Novem­ber and De­cem­ber that are de­signed to please all of KZN’s petrol­heads, whether you are into high-speed stunts or the low­est pos­si­ble dropped sus­pen­sion.

Team Alky leads the fray with a Brag­ging Rights event on Novem­ber 5. After Ever­shin Pil­lay, Joey Goven­der and Reece Wil­liamson headed eight of SA’s top driv­ers at eTV’s So You Think You Can Drift au­di­tions, held at Ma­son’s Mill on Septem­ber 30, this team are best qual­i­fied to be­stow brag­ging rights on the cap­i­tal’s best spin­ners, drifters and stunt driv­ers in Scottsville on the first Satur­day of Novem­ber.

Or­gan­iser Ever­shin Pil­lay told Wheels the sec­ond event prom­ises to be as in­ci­dent free and suc­cess­ful as the first one hosted at the Court Sports on Aber­feldy Road in Au­gust. Two weeks later, the fresh young crew at Grounded Na­tion will host a Stance Fest at the Ash­bur­ton Train­ing Cen­tre, also home of SA’s old­est stance fest, “Cars in the Park”.

The date is Novem­ber 19 and the co-or­gan­iser Dy­lan Wel­ton said the point of this show is to bring all types of cars and even mo­tor­cy­cles to­gether. The limbo will be hosted by Low Down Cus­toms, there are four classes; static, bagged, cus­tom and crew. “The rule is no de­flat­ing tyres and a cus­tom class has been made for drop tops. Other than that you can load as many peo­ple as you want in the car or put as many ce­ment bags in as you can,” said Wel­ton.

At the end of Novem­ber, Msinga hosts SA’s top spin­ners at the fifth Driftkhana in what Thrill Seeker pre­sen­ter An­dre Kar­rim de­scribes as the best drift­ing arena in the coun­try.

And on De­cem­ber 3 Reece Wil­liamson presents Round 1 of the KZN Driftkhana Se­ries at Ma­son’s Mill. Wheels will be giv­ing away tick­ets to all the events.
