The SupaDrifters are coming to Dezzi’s at month end, while the spinners are planning a world record.
THE first round of Supadrift’s 2018 season started in Johannesburg this past weekend, with 23 drivers arriving from all over South Africa to compete.
While the cars’ front suspensions are highly modified, only production cars that had at least 600 units built in their model year can compete.
These production cars must be constructed by a major vehicle manufacturer and currently/previously available as a homologated and factory available vehicle.
In the hotly contested Top 16, KZN’s Shane Gutzeit had to retire with a broken gearbox while Zein Hussein seized his motor, handing the win to Adam Shefer — but at the cost of Shefer’s front end.

The weekend’s Supadrift series opener claimed its share of drama, with a number of drivers suffering from mechanical issues before the event even got under way. Most managed to repair their mechanical problems, but Mikey Skelton and David Rae had to retire with engine failure.
The second Supadrift round will be held at the Polokwane Raceway on June 1-2, followed by the third round at Dezzi Raceway on the KZN south coast on June 29-30.
